I got to teach one of my "nieces" about mussels. There were so many mussels washed up on the shore. Most were empty. Her face was priceless, especially after we found an oyster and a crab! She was ecstatic telling everyone about what she saw. Then of course, I got to be silly and ran through a flock of seagulls.
Being in nature has always been a form of therapy for me. I feel at peace and in a way recharged for the upcoming week. I really needed it.
