Unfortunately my birthday pelagic birding trip was cancelled due to a storm. We couldn't get a refund on the room so we decided to go anyway. We stayed at The star. We had a small view of the ocean from our room. It rained all day and the wind was fierce. There was not much to do outside in nature, which completely reaffirmed WHY we don't go to populated tourist areas for vacations. Cape May does have wild unspoiled areas, but most of it is completely built up. I couldn't help dreaming of our gorgeous retreat on the coast of Maine-I will be sending our deposit in this week, to insure we treat ourselves next Fall to that blissful week. We did have a couple of delicious meals and spent some much needed time alone, so all was not lost. Woohoo biggest bonus of the weekend: sleeping with open windows and a wild storm sea!!! The hipnotic sound of waves crashing. Ocean healing at its finest.

On New Years Day morning as we were walking out the door to join our good friends for a hike I quickly down loaded a map my hike app on my phone. We did a wonderful 5.06 mile hike, gorgeous blue skies although a little cold we warmed up pretty quickly as we hiked. We brought our dogs, so they had a nice time doing triple our mileage. Monday I started using another app to track the dog walks I do. Today I decided to see how many miles I've walked and hiked since the first day of they year. I did at total of 32.6 since the year started! I missed one day due to rain. I think that I may be addicted to racking up the miles! So much fun to see how far you are actually going, and it pushes you to do more and not miss days. It was very cold this week and I didn't blow Monty off at all. Last weeks total was 26.6, pretty good for six days.

This is from fullmoon.info. I get a email from them once a month. I really like this. The full moon will be on Monday (or Sunday for certain time zones). It is the first full moon of the new year 2015, and no doubt, one or two of you may have already forged out plans and good resolutions. Forget it! The more you are clinging to an ideal in the future, the more you manifest the lack in the present. Our life is good, when we are without thoughts and intention and when we reflect on our inner nature. Because the good in us is life.

First thing this morning we had a Male Coop come in the yard and nab a Starling. Hard to see the poor starling struggling, but its nature. Everyone has to eat. We started off 2015 on the right foot, with a wonderful 5 mile hike up on the AT. I truly feel like a million bucks right now. So wonderful to get out there!
