The world offers us some really beautiful views of nature. It can be hard to slow down and take it all in when we are always so busy with life, but we should all make time to do it, because it’s good for our soul. It relaxes us and provides us with some amazing photo opportunities.
Several weeks ago, we went to a neighbouring city for a family birthday party, and we were in awe of the beautiful colours of the trees along the drive. We also took in some geocaching (read about that here).
I personally prefer spring and summer over fall and winter… and I know everyone has their own preferences. But all seasons offer us something special to look at and enjoy. Regardless of how I feel about fall though, there is no denying the beauty of the season, with its contrasting and changing colours.
We encourage the boys to come for walks with us and to pay attention to nature. Sometimes you can spot wildlife or a path you haven’t noticed before. Enjoying the peace and quiet, and breathing in that fresh air, not unlike a canoe ride on a camping trip, does wonders for you in so many ways.
While on our walk, we noticed the difference in temperature from just a couple of weeks before. The air was cooler, and you could smell summer’s goodbye, and pick up on fall’s crisp scent. The sun, while still warming the skin, had definitely cooled, as if also saying farewell.
I’m already looking forward to spring and the perfumed air it brings as everything begins to bloom!
