A Waterfall


When was the last time you went for a walk in nature? Just walked for the sake of walking? of observing the leaves and the rocks? the light and the sky?

The other day I did just that. Went for a walk in nature. My husband and I were on Vancouver Island and were exploring. We went to Goldstream Provincial Park to walk to a waterfall.

We walked along the trail.

We didn’t talk very much.

We just looked.

We looked at the rocks at our feet.

We looked at the trees and leaves around us.

We looked at the moss.

We looked at the light filtering through the forest.

We looked at the waterfall.

When we arrived at its base, I sat on a rock and just observed. Just listened to the sounds of the water,  the wind, the leaves.

It was peaceful.

It was relaxing.

It was refreshing.
