In this time of worry about COVID-19 I find that getting out in nature has a calming effect.
Like (almost) everyone, my days are spent close to (or at) home. Exercise classes are all virtual and I am still getting out for solo exercise walks.
While schools are closed and many businesses are in a "work from home" environment we are not yet under a "remain at home" order in Massachusetts. That means I was able to feed my need for the ocean Friday afternoon, heading to the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge for a solo walk.
While I wasn't the only human there, no one was close to me. Social distancing was the rule of the day.
