Sunset

This is my backyard. Well, part of it. I live in a community that's about a 10 minute drive from town; within it I have a deep water lagoon and marshland at my fingertips. The open space is a wonderful place to go when you need some away time, as I've begun to notice more and more this summer. I come here to think and to journal and to be quiet. Too often is alone time in nature overlooked. My favorite hour to explore out here is at sunset. It's so beautiful and serene. Before this summer, I have to admit that I don't think I understood the marsh. I didn't understand the benefits of nature as I think I do now. I'm not sure what flipped the switch in me, but I'm glad it did. xx

  2. These pictures are goooorgeous, Elanor! So warm and dreamy. *___* And the fact that you have a lagoon and marshland so close sounds delightful! Nature really is a lovely thing--our backyard sits on a lake, and we have chairs down by the lake, and during the day when the mosquitoes aren't rampant I like to go sit in our red chairs and reflect (and I'm also guilty of bringing my laptop there, woops!)

  10. Summer peace and quiet is the best peace and quiet. This looks like the most perfect place to sit and think. I'm getting ready to move into the city and I'm getting sad about losing my quiet escapes that I live so close to right now.

    I love these pictures. Feels like home. :)
