The Great Outdoors



“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be.” Anne Frank
Happy Birthday Anne and thank you for writing and sharing all that you did.

Sky Watch Friday bloggers share their own view of the heavens from all kinds of different angles.





Making cards for special friends feels pretty good too!

Thanks for stopping by to visit, and for your lovely comments.

Your pictures (and words!) are wonderful. You live in a very special part of the world. I love that part of Australia!

How beautiful this picture is with the sea all aglow. I am going to put that quote somewhere it can be seen often. I gave Anne Frank's diary to my niece when she was 13. To this day, she remains in awe. Thanks for reminding me.

Oh our family just adores Anne. We visited her home in Amsterdam and all of us were overcome.
