I grew up in the country, riding horses, bushwalking and swimming in creeks. My parents have lived in the same house for almost 40 years and are surrounded by a mix of farmland and bush. This scene is pretty typical of the area and it is a scene that always fills my heart with joy. As much as I love cities or walks along the beach, it is the countryside where I feel most at peace.
This is my place in the world.
I can feel the peace in that scene, Sam, but I want to go and bounce around with those Joeys 🙂 🙂
So very peaceful Jo 🙂 The Joeys are fun to watch especially when you see them take a dive into Mum’s pouch, you just have to steer clear of the adults because the males in particular can be aggressive.
Sam, I can understand you, nothing beats the beauty of unspoiled country.
It truly doesn’t and nor does it seem to matter where in the world I am. The land and the wildlife are food for the soul.
Like you, I like the city but the countryside is amazing. It’s where I actually feel peace, detached from the stress in the world, and life becomes so simple. That is a lovely scene. It looks like there’s kangaroos hopping around? Beautiful 🙂
It is the simple things in life that bring us joy and yes, kangaroos are quite common where my parents live and I never tire of seeing them 🙂
