Lovers Key State Park between Bonita Springs and Fort Myers Beach Florida is a 712 acre State Park and home to a wide diversity of Florida wildlife. Mist and rain and wind started in the morning and our beach plans turned to hiking (more or less). My daughter Ariel and I initially took the boardwalk down to the beach to search for shells, but the wind was so strong that we opted to walk the 2-mile Black Island trail around the bay instead. Despite the alligator warnings posted nearly everywhere, we set off down the foot path with water bottles and oranges in hand.
There’s a feeling of joy we get when we share the things we love with someone else. When we spot something interesting and exclaim, “look at that” and our excitement is returned to us. What happens in that moment is our love for beauty and life multiplies. In essence our sense of Good expands. We discover our love by sharing it – the things we most treasure.
Thanks for taking a little bit of the journey with me.
