Education & Training with Performance Development Strategies

We were out on the water today sharing nature.  This is a shot on the Intracoastal Waterway in Vero Beach, Florida.  Although this was not the best shot with my iPad there is a bird in the nest.

A bird has built its nest on top the the channel marker. If you look down in the water you can see another bird approaching.

We enjoy being out on the water and there is plenty of social distancing!  Happy Wednesday.

Hello Grant - it seems you are enjoying your time in Florida.  Whenever, I hear/read of Vero Beach, I think of the Los Angeles Dodgers since that was their longtime Spring training location.

Thanks for sharing your boating experience and your photograph.

We had boats for many years when we lived in Virginia.

Being out on water, or walking at water's edge, are great ways to reduce stress and boost our immune systems. Glad you enjoyed your experience.

How beautiful. Hasn't nature been the soothing factor is all of this of late? I know, I know, always beating the same old drum. At least I'm consistent right?  Lol. So happy guys get to do this.

Hi Grant:

What a pleasant place to enjoy nature...wonder if that is an osprey?!

Nature is always soothing, and perhaps even more during these challenging times. Enjoy!
