A couple of weeks ago, I could feel that I hadn't been leaving the apartment, the suburb, the bustle as often as I should have been. I found that Oscar was watching a bit too much tele, and I was, well I was spending a bit too much time here, on my laptop. I knew we had to go away, to a screen free place and run around. Explore. As silly as it sounds, I was craving a little reconnection with nature.
It was a joy to watch as Oscar collected oyster shells. He yelled at the ocean, as the tide went in and out, because, well, it had been that long since we had been to the beach and he found it intimidating. He giggled with excitement over little skinks and chased ducks and pelicans.
