#AtoZChallenge — Outside

This post is part of the April A to Z Blogging Challenge, where I am challenging myself to reflect on other A to Z posts that I come across.

What did I do today? Well, the first thing I did was skim through some A to Z posts. Among them were a haiku titled Outdoors and a short article on conservation of our Oceans. The latter urged that, “Oceans have become garbage cans and it needs to be taken care of ASAP. Try and give a day to beach cleaning and you will realize what they are going thru.”

So, my partner and I went out into the great outdoors to visit the Sonoma Coast. It was a beautiful day — sunny and just enough wind to make the sea air feel extra fresh and crisp.

Every bracelet purchased represents the removal of one pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines.  It looks cute and it’s for a good cause, and the organization has a cool origin story.

And now, please enjoy this slow motion video of the ocean.

What’s your favorite outdoor space like?

  1. I love the ocean, but whenever I think of my ideal outdoor place it usually involves lots of trees! A cabin in the woods, or in the mountains. A place that’s quiet and I can reflect, and of course write!

    1. Trees are good too! I’ve been daydreaming about getting a house in the redwoods someday, but I have a friend who has lived among the redwoods and says it tends to be pretty dark in there. So maybe not, because I love me my natural light… What kind of trees are you picturing?

      1. I love all trees so I’m not too fussy! I have a slight obsession and it only got worse when Earth spirits brought trees to life in my latest series! I’ve always been fascinated with the tree of life and something about their energy, their strength and tranquility draws me in. And I can’t believe I’m rambling about trees right now! Bet you wish you’d never asked 😉
