Jake has posted his challenge for this Sunday – Favorite Places. I’ll bet you’ll never ever guess my most favorite place!
Another view, from the southeast side. It is my front deck. Of course, what else? That spot where I spend relaxing time, late afternoon, early evening, before dinner. Sometimes other times during the day when I am not busy. Or napping. It is where I can sit in silence, hearing the sounds of nature, watching the birds and an occasional chipmunk or squirrel. It is my paradise. We are soon to be going into real fall weather if Weather.com is telling me true and I am going to miss my quiet time out there.
But that is not my only favorite place. My other most favorite place is the coast – the ocean and its shores.
or at sunset, the ocean sounds and breezes blow away the cobwebs, sooth the soul, bring quiet and peace to the emotions. Yet, the breezes and sounds can be stimulating too, causing the heart to quicken a bit sometimes, encouraging that one breathes in deeply and breathes out slowly. Relaxation! Providing an opportunity that cannot be beat for walking at a casual pace, watching to see what can be seen, what treasure might be found in the sand, or spied on the horizon.
Favorite places – lifesavers!
