Since the onset of the flu, I have found immediate relief and sense of health when I put my head outside and breathed in clear cool air and it was my goal to spend some time outside yesterday, as it was a beautiful day with a nice SW wind. On Saturday, LM had spotted a snowy owl at his favorite beach. (found the photo below on line, as neither of us have a sophisticated camera)
After all that excitement we parked at the end of the beach and were off for a walk through some high marsh and then back along the waterline. It was just perfect and I felt strong enough, on LM's arm to be out for about 30 minutes of gentle walking, breathing deeply, and savoring my source of all healing.
come along on our little walk-
These scrub pines seem to thrive in winter, and we stood by this little stand and closed our eyes to listen to the song. They really do sing in the wind, and their song brought tears to my eyes as I listened yesterday.
The low growth is marsh heather
Bass River low tide
The way back took us right along the beach - only available at low tide
The view at our feet was as interesting as all the others.
We were surprised to see a lot of oysters
We made our way along the jetty that leads to the mouth of the river where it meets Nantucket Sound
We got to a point where we could climb up on to jetty and head back to the car.
I love these winter colors - the grass was leaning in the wind
Renewed, and after a little dinner, I was on my way home.
Thanks for all your wishes.
