One of the nicest things our boss did for us was heed our suggestion that we could really use a Staff Relaxation Day each summer when Day Camp was over and before the school season got underway. Yesterday was our third or fourth (we can’t quite remember) annual. At my suggestion, we went out to Camp Timbercrest where each could of us partake in whatever activity we found most relaxing. Some brought books. Some cameras. We all brought food. Some sat and soaked up the sun. Others enjoyed the cool shade. Some hiked. Some went boating. We had perfect weather and we all got the chance to relax.
If you haven’t figured it out, one of my favorite ways to relax is to hike with my camera. After boating a bit in the morning and eating a delicious potluck lunch, I took a hike around the lake with Jeff who taught me a few new flowers and a fern.
I’ll start with the fern, because it was so little and cute. It’s called Lance-leaved Grape Fern:
Yeah so, nothing new here: Jennifer relaxes by hiking and taking pictures… and she’s always learning new flowers…
What do you do to relax?
