So Close to Home....
There are so many times in our lives that we are bored with our lives, our surroundings, where we are in our lives. We forget that there are many things happening right outside our door in the town, neighborhood, state we live in. We overlook what is right in front of us and forget to appreciate what we actually have and crave for something else even though we may not know what it is.
This is sort of what happened today. We decided to hike into the Indian River. There is a boat ride up the river but there is also a trail into and next to the river. I haven't done it in years and the sad part the trail is a five minute drive from the house. We had a great time hiking in and appreiciating what is literally right out our door. The swamp was low so we were able to see the roots of the trees and they looked like large snakes crawling on the floor of the forest. Because the water level was low, we were able to walk into those areas and really appreciate the beauty of the forest. We were also able to meet some very nice people at the bar inside the forest.
So go out, explore what is right near you. You may be surprised with what you will find and how much fun you had!
