The end of 2020

And so we reach the end of 2020. A challenging year on so many levels. Usually we try and get a beach walk in on the 31st December or the 1st of January. But knowing we were heading back into a new covid 19 level five lockdown today (our highest level lockdown here in Ireland), which includes a 5km travel restriction – we made the most of yesterday and went to Ross Beach.

A visit to the beach, no matter what time of year, brings cheer. The tide was out and the low winter light perfect.

I want to thank all those who have stopped by over the last year, particularly those that have taken time to comment. I know I haven’t been as good as other years in reading and commenting and I will try to do more in 2021. I do value this wordpress community, the support, inspiration and kindness you all offer.

I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year. I hope 2021 brings you some magic.

A walk in nature

In these times of lockdown the simple pleasures of a walk (no more than 2km of your home if you are in Ireland), still the mind.

It allows us time to refocus, time away from the chore of working from home.

It allows us time away from the constant noise of children at home. So you can enjoy the bird song and buzz of the bees by yourself.

It allows us time to connect to Mother Nature, to enjoy her beauty.

It allows us time to fill our lungs with fresh air and to enjoy the smell of spring.

The simplicity of a walk in nature, bring us peace.
