First walk along the river, which is literally a hundred yards from where we live. The only thing I could think was "Why don't we do this more often?" Yeah WHY? I don't know, we are busy. Well it was so beautiful and calming. Nature does something to me, (serotonin maybe?) it makes me calm down, think clearly, and just give me a better perspective. It also makes me feel more connected to God and inspires me to pray and be thankful. Especially when there is water involved. The ocean, a river, even a pond, just put me there and I am in a happy place.
A few days later it was my first canoe trip of the year. It was a very special one as well because my much loved cousins, Aunt & Uncle and my 82 year old Grandpa went with. We went down the river pictured - the Clarion, and had a great time.
Another first, Heirloom Tomatoes! I have been waiting so patiently for them! Ahh... and it was everything I had imagined. I think it is going to be a good tomato year.
I sliced that thing up with some chopped basil, S&P, and olive oil. Yum and more to come!
