~ refreshed...restored...and ready to go ~

please
come for tea
and
sit with me
I have
a
"secret place"
to share
with you
today

a place
that restores my
soul
and
gives me back
my
peace
and
harmony

my favourite resting place in the whole world
Deception Pass
on Whidbey Island
where time is spent
watching the sunsets each and every night
sitting for hours upon hours on the beach
listening to the ocean waves
feeding the squirrels
collecting rocks and sea glass
counting the fishing boat
spotting the seals ....
restoring
me



where silliness is welcomed
and
laughter is required


where
mother
daughter
time
is
so
preciously
savoured
and
enjoyed
I am once again
refreshed and ready to go
thanks
to my
"secret place"
{stay tuned for part 2...my secret shopping place...."where bunnies live and give glad dreams"}
