Pacific Ocean "Pause Button"

It's been awhile since the last time I ventured down to 
the beach and it would be nice if you all would join me :)

The colorful trees and shrubs along the path
to Glencoe Cove - Kwatsech Park, Victoria B.C.

In the middle is actually a separate little rock island which is my secret 
retreat spot where I meditate, ponder, and escape from the craziness of life

The Pacific Ocean 

Fun Fact: See that last across the Straight of Georgia? That's America!
 The west side of San Juan Island, Washington State to be more precise 

So if anyone see's a little Canadian squirrel waving at you, it's just me :)

Moments of tranquility amidst such a beautiful world

Me looking like I'm about to cry gazing with the sun in behind 

Alright, time to head on back

So long, farewell, aufedersein, goodbye. I'm happy 
you all could join me for a few minutes of relaxation!

Looking behind me

Questions: Did you take a few minutes out of your
day to relax? Please share some of the things you do
 to slow down and "press pause" during a busy day?

I try to take a few minutes everyday to just stand still. I really do think it helps to keep you going!

I took time today to relax, and am doing the same this evening :-)

That place is beautiful. So tranquil.

When I need to relax, I lie on my back and stare at the ceiling. I'm not even going to sugar coat it. XD

Lovely! In the spring, I like to sit in/under a weeping willow with a good book. There's not much more peaceful than that. Unless, of course, you happen to have access to an ocean! :P

Wow, so, so beautiful! I haven't relaxed today yet, but I'm going to spend half an hour at my piano now. That always calms me down. I also like to lie in the bathtub, go for a walk, or play Wii. :)
