“Walking is the best possible exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very far”, so wrote Thomas Jefferson.

Which I walked some of recently. I say ‘some’, hardly any is more the truth. I would have disappointed the exalting Mr Jefferson, as I only managed short bursts during a recent short holiday in Coverack, Cornwall.
The reason for those short walks: I’ve damaged my left knee meniscus it seems.
