Day 27 What is your most favourite place outside in the fresh air? Is it your backyard? The top of a mountain? A park?
I am posting a month's worth of prompts to focus my attention and reflect on the year of 2016. Won't you join me here and/ or on Facebook, I would love some company.
I don't have one favourite... well if I had to choose I would say the most favourite outdoor place is the deck on my own property. I love sitting out there in the summer - well I did ... the last few years we have struggled with our tulip tree and and an infestation of aphids that have rendered a certain portion of the deck uninhabitable. that is a bummer. We are now trying to figure out if we should remove the tulip tree; leave it for the new owners: will there be new owners.... maybe we won't sell right away .... gah.
My next favourite outdoor place is definitely Nathan Creek. I love to walk there - all seasons... it is just long enough and the view is wide open and usually we see a blue heron or an eagle.... many, many conversations, many frustrations eased, worries released, laughter and arguments.... a lot of living spent on that trail.
My third most favourite place was the Skerwink Trail in Newfoundland - the views were amazing... even though it rained all day; the payoff was huge. I also loved Gros Morne - also in Newfoundland.
