Relaxing Nature Walks

Lately the only way I've been able to keep a level head and not go completely insane is by going for super long walks along the many trails here in Cambridge. It's a great way to escape, to clear my head, and to remind myself that there's so much more to life than money, careers and material possessions.

Every Spring we get a lot of flooding here because of the many rivers that snake through our city. It's troublesome for people like my Grandma who live close to the river, because her basement always floods, but apart from that problem I think it's a lot of fun.

Another great thing about living here is the wildlife. There are so many red tailed hawks, deer, coyotes, and a variety of other birds and critters. I love watching the different animals when we go on our walks.

  2. I can totally relate here. If I don't get at least 3 long walks in every week I think I will go crazy. It's very therapeutic for me. I am a new follower from the aloha Friday hop. I hope you come over and check out my blog too!
