Jim phoned.
"Want to kayak this afternoon?"
He didn't have to ask twice!

I was exhausted after long days of meetings with Chinese clients whose English was limited and a quiet paddle around Bowman Bay was irresistible.

Bring on the sunshine and the water!

The woods look different when seen from a kayak...

... kelp and starfish and jellyfish, too.
And then, since one little jaunt deserves another, we decided on a family hike at Fir Island.

Why not?

The barns along the country roads...

wildflowers so high you have to wade through them.

If you're feeling worn out and stressed, let me recommend a jaunt somewhere wild, whether it's the sea that's calling you or the woods or just a quiet corner in the neighborhood park.

Take along a buddy or two and leave the world behind.

There's not much summer left and we all need a little quiet to reflect and recharge before autumn.

The water looked serene and glass-like, Sharyn! What a wonderful day you had.
