    One of my favorite things to do is sit on the

    back porch watching the beautiful sunset. I will sit their for awhile admiring the country life and listening to the animals in the background.

    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...

    Beauty And Nature

    I love being outside.

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

    Where I Am the Happiest..

    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...

    Not Again!

    I love zipping down the mountian trials here in Marin. The weather has been warm and sunny. Over head the canopy of trees filters the light and makes quilt patterns on the forest floor. Spring is definatly in the air wild flowers are in bloom by the million and their sent...

    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.

    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.

    Heed that call and you’ll reap physical and mental health benefits. Here are  good reasons to get outdoors: Your vitamin D levels rise. Sunlight hitting the skin begins a process that leads to the creation and activation of vitamin D. Studies suggest that this vitamin...

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

    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)

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