One ear was open for the chattering of my sons, the other ear was occupied listening to some great encouragement. What a good way to start the day!
We saw a turtle the size of a car tire, we saw a lovely blue heron. And we also watched a tiny turtle eat his breakfast - though the dead bug didn't look appetizing to me, I guess you can't blame him for an easy meal. And the exercise just makes it all so good. Even just walking is so energizing.
So I encourage you to get out of the house! It takes less time than you think. And your investment of energy will be returned and doubled. :)
