Happy Earth Day!

Earth Day observance always falls on April 22.
On Earth Day, enjoy the tonic of fresh air, contact with the soil, and companionship with nature! 
Walk through the woods in search of emerging wildflowers and green moss. Go outside, no matter what the weather!Earth Day HistoryEver wondered how Earth Day started? 
This observance arose from an interest in gathering national support for environmental issues. 
In 1970, San Francisco activist John McConnell and Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson separately asked Americans to join in a grassroots demonstration.
McConnell chose the spring equinox (March 21, 1970) and Nelson chose April 22.
Millions of people participated, and today Earth Day continues to be widely celebrated with events on both dates. The most common practice of celebration is to plant new trees for Earth Day.

welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
