It’s hard to believe that today is already Thursday. D and I have had a great time so far. That first day seemed like three days in one, but I think we’re beginning to recover. I was up bright and early this morning and had some much needed time to journal and enjoy the silence around me. I went for a long walk by myself over the rocky, hilly terrain here. It was incredible. I climbed up to place that overlooks the immediate area (6-7 miles). I could see other small towns nearby as well as the ocean and some islands in the distance. It was beautiful and a perfect place to sit and think. The great part about my walk was that I left the house where we’re staying without a cell phone, watch, or anything else that would indicate time. I can’t remember the last time I did that, or if I’ve ever done that. It was very freeing.

Here is another picture from my walk yesterday.
