    and healthier. I would love to go camping and fishing. Oh well, guess I have to watch it on TV.

    My Idea of being out doors is

    either sit on the porch outside or on the beach watching Sunset or sunrise or at a restaurant sitting outside watching the waves.

    That Summer Grass Smell...

    So I've always lived near the beach or the bush, in all the moving I've done, until this year. This year I am actually literally across a main road from a big reserve, but there's a fence in the way and I am no longer with bushpeople. So the call of the trees and all the little...

    To feel the wind. To hike through the trees. It is the only place that can calm me.

     Anytime of the year, regardless If I feel sad, or happy, going outside always boost my mood. It doesn't matter the kind of weather that is thrown out me, as long I get the fresh outdoor air, I feel a sense of relief I can't feel inside. I love the calm relaxing feeling...

    Summer In SF

    Now that summer is just about here the temperatures in SF are dropping. I'm relatively new to the area and I don't think I'll ever get used to it. I just stocked up on warm cycling gear so I don't freeze to death while I ride...in July and August. So weird, but sometimes fun.

    I can't stand to be cooped up indoors.  It's depressing to me.. Last weekend I went camping & I had the best time.  I love to take my quad out or go horseback riding.. The sun, wind, rain whatever wakes me up.  I feel so alive...  The bugs & dirt don't...

    There is nothing more relaxing than a good hike or a rock climb. You get dirty and learn things, about yourself and nature.

    Summer is here. The outdoors beckons.

    I think it's weird that I love the outdoors

    but I spend so little time outside. I just love being outside in the fresh air and just listening to the birds and the noise the trees make in the wind. It's my favourite place (next to my bed)
