Kayaking (as seen in my pic ;-) )
Whoa. Right now I only have 972 characters to tell of my love of the outdoors. I was 3 years old, and I was helping my Grandfather carry a long piece of lumber. Context: he had a pin in his hip, had a hard time moving around, but spent his life working, and working hard---but he needed help. He looked me in the eyes and said "thank you, you're a great helper". Other relatives knew him as a "grouch". I got to see his goodness as well. Not a classic "outdoor" story, but "cherished childhood memory" and it was outdoors ;-).
Hi~ My name is Anna Jean. I'm currently working my way back from a few years of hard illnesses and trying to use this year to transition into life again. The outdoors, the sunlight: it's all life-giving <3!
