MY BIRTHDAY RETREAT

I am here in Jasper, Alberta Canada for five days. My daughter is at a dance camp so I thought I would take advantage of the time and go away too. Although I am by myself I am thoroughly enjoying it for I am taking the time to reflect, get inspired and to blog. And this is what I wanted to share with you today.



I went for a walk along the railroad side of the street. It was sunny with a few clouds and fairly warm. The railroad is on the left side of me just over the bank and the main road is to the right. you wouldn't know it from the pictures I took would you?

I passed a few cyclists along the way and couple walking while holding hands. There a man who had found a spot on a small hill and there he sat with camera in hand. I think he to was getting inspired.

although this walkway was situated along the main highway that goes through town you can still find some moments of peace. But I had been walking for a good hour and a half and it was time to head back to my room.

My walk was two hours today. I am now stiff and quite sore but it was worth it. Looking forward to quiet time in my room writing.

  1. Greeting! This is Munir over here at Focus.

    Happy Birthday:)

    I see that you are a Leo so is your birthday August 9? My husband's birthday is also the nineth of August.
    The pictures are beautiful and serene. I would be meditating too. Getting tired after a retreat is actually good for a good night's sleep.
