We went for a family bike ride yesterday along West River Drive on the Schuylkill river. Turns out it was the Dad Vail Regatta weekend, and the river was almost choked with college rowers. Despite the pretty stiff breeze and cool temperatures, the young people were glowing with health and vitality.
LATER NOTE: Re-reading this I was struck by the fact that I had used the term "young people" (as a differentiator from self) for the first time without even missing a beat. Ironic, since this was posted on my birthday. I guess I am feeling my age, and feeling OK about that.
