With it being my wife’s birthday today, we headed over to the south side of the island to find some sun - it has been cold & wet of late - and shelter from the wind. We found a small, quiet beach and spent a couple of hours there. The warmth of the sun creeping into our bones felt healing and restorative.

I unintentionally left my phone in the car, but there was a blessing. Instead of looking to snap a photo of this scene or that scene, I was forced to just sit and be. To simply take in, enjoy and appreciate the beauty around me.
