Mom, desperately trying to get the health thing right! I started this blog so that I can pass along all the great things that I learn everyday on damage control for our wonderful bodies. It is tough to keep up sometimes with all the things going on in our daily lives so hopefully some of the helpful hints that I provide can make your life easier and healthier. I welcome your comments and tips as well! I am a vegetarian, animal rights advocate and avid animal rescuer.

“The Sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” Jacques Coustea

Has there ever been a place in your heart and soul that feels you with awe, wonder and complete serenity? I hope so because having that place even if it is far away is such a source of unbelievable joy. I have a place like this and I think of it every day and the memories (most of them anyway-lol) give me peace.

Something happens to me when I sit on the sand and watch and listen to the waves. It is like nothing else I have experienced in my life and such a wonderful serenity and gratefulness of being there. The memories and sounds in my mind calm me on a bad day and constantly renew my faith and spirituality. I love the natural beaches of Central America because they are not full of shops, and clubs and people but instead surrounded by jungle mountains, iguanas and monkeys and my favorite meal that I can only get there. I am counting the days until I will be sitting on the beach with a foo foo drink taking in the beautiful sounds and scenery.
I hope you too have somewhere that gives you this!

“It’s hard for me to put into words why I like the beach so much. Everything about it is renewing for me, almost like therapy...Beach Therapy”

--Amy Dykens

“The beach is in our blood. Everyone in our family returns to the beach instinctively, just like the sea turtles.”
--Sandy Archibald

Great post Heidi, if you haven't heard it you would probably love a John Denver song called "Calypso" -- it was written in honor of Jacques Cousteau.

the ocean has always been my haven too, my therapy, the sound of waves seem to wash away all stress. though i may hike but i always see to it that i get to hear the ocean in a matter of few days if not everyday. hope you have a wonderful trip.
