2016 came and went with quite a bit of mixed emotions. Another year older, another year of supposed wisdom. Yet, I find that with everything that happened in 2016, I still had a sense of helplessness and odd mix of anxiety about what this year held. Another year older and yet i don’t know that I have much to show for myself. Another year of opportunity lies ahead and I plan on reaching again. If I don’t, then next year I will have even less to show for myself.
One goal for 2017 is to get out more. Living on Cape Cod provides so many opportunities to get out into Nature. Some even believe walking in the woods is as good as getting therapy. Everyone knows about the pristine beaches, but there are also many acres of preserved woods and trails all over Cape Cod that are free to the public.
We started the day after Christmas and have been off discovering trails we know and trails we have never even heard of. It’s been fun exploring the beauty of the Cape in a new way. The woods have been relaxing and a personal experience, yet sharing the walks with family has been nice too because we are able to share in the beauty of the place we call home.
