Ocean Blue


Over the summer break as a family we signed our kids up for four weeks of swimming lessons at the beach. It meant for the whole month of January had to be at the beach every morning.

There were many mornings when we didn’t want to go, but as we got used to seeing the blue of the ocean everyday by the third week we were hooked.

We decided to set ourselves a family goal this year, to try and see the ocean every single day.

Just five minutes of being immersed in the beauty of nature, completely changes the tone of our day.

When was the last time you stared out into the blue of the ocean?

Or stared into a night black sky and counted the stars.

Watched a river flow or allowed yourself to look at a Mountain in the distance. Often we see the change of the sky as dusk settles and we love to see the flashes of colour as day turns to night.

There is something deeply profound about the beauty of nature and its capacity to resettle us back into our place of peace and restoration.
