The Restorative Power of being Outside

Wilsons Promontory

Well, we got rained on, really more ‘stormed’ upon and the surf was terrible. And it was cold, and more like winter than summer and we looked for patches of blue sky like sailors on a deserted island looking out for rescue boats.

BUT, there were lovely moments too, like walking along Tidal River after the rain, and looking up the mountains and the granite.

AND, there is still something fundamentally restorative and healthful about being a little bit in the outdoors, in a national park that is something like the landscape would have been thousands of years ago. And I do feel better after being there!

Happy holiday season everyone!
