Nature soothes my soul.

This photo was taken on one of my daily hikes up Blue Heron Hill.

One of my favourite places to go at the end of a long wintery day.

Each breath. Each step. Shifts me higher.

To a place of perfect peace. At one with theย great big beautiful sky.

A divine connection. No words necessary. Heaven on earth indeed.

  1. I enjoy flying RC aircraft. I fly electric planes, and they fly with very little sound. I find it relaxing and soothing to take a plane up and fly lazy circuits. I don’t care for crazy aerobatics or stunts: the perfect flight is a nice and steady circuit followed by a flawless landing. That, to me, is bliss.

    1. Thank you for sharing! I can see why you go to the sea to relax and be free. Especially since your blog is such a beautiful ode to water. Water has always held a precious place in my heart too. My mom often shares how I swam before I walked. (At nine months of age.) Synchronistically, I dream of water more often than anything else. (Water symbolizes emotions in dreams.) Water is ultimately who we are. (65-70% of the human body is H2O.) So it’s no wonder that you go to the sea to just be. (I love your play on words.) ๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŒŠ

  2. You said it, Andrea. I love this phrase, “Heaven on earth.” I really got a sense of it from your writing. Thank you for that. โค

    I do a few things. First, I meditate as a way to tune into my heart. Also, I take deep breaths (really helps to calm me down). Also, there's a gorgeous peace ranch in Santa Barbara called, Windermere. It's such a place of peace, with nature, animals and a presence of calm for me.

    Thanks for another great post. Participating helped to tune me into my calm, at a time when I could really use it. Love, Debbie

    1. How can anything so wonderful be clichรฉ!? (Spoken naรฏvely by a non-Floridian.) You are so blessed to live in such a beautiful place. If I lived in Florida I’d be doing the exact same thing. I especially love how you made it your own personal challenge to explore a different beach every week. The best therapy!

  3. Strangely enough Andrea I am here in the city of Liverpool on the last day of my four day break. Prior to my Gambian trip of 2017 I visited the travel clinic here to get my outstanding hepatitis b jab and promised at some stage to revisit. The city holds so many memories for me. Flights with the family to Ireland, sea crossings with my late mum and many visits to Roman Catholic Cathedral. I feel so refreshed.
    I usually visit my local park to refresh & renew so this is a complete change. I think being near the sea makes the difference it this city break.
