After the 17+ minute behemoth of a vlog last week, I thought we might want to take it a little easier with this week’s vlog. In that spirit, I decided to take a stroll through the middle of the urban wilderness with my four-year-old in tow. Look at us! We’re getting into nature and making our own discoveries, just like Dr. Scott the Paleontologist taught us. Off to the woods we go!
While it certainly wasn’t the most rigorous thing I’ve done in my life, going for a walk in the woods with my daughter was at least an active thing that I did. Part of the motivation came from a desire to raise a wild child, but it was also about my own physical and mental health too. If I can’t work, I may as well be doing something positive, right?
And truth be told, I really have no excuse not to explore the gorgeous natural beauty around me. I live in a beautiful part of the country, and “the woods” and “the wild” are remarkably accessible. Whether it’s a stroll through Central Park, a thoughtful moment in Deep Cove, or even a wild dad blogger retreat in Manning Park, it’s not hard to “do the nature” around here.
Well, at least until it starts raining. I don’t like sludging through the rain.
