This week's word is Adventure.
Adventure is a favorite word of mine. I do love an adventure. Personally I am just not happy when I don't have an adventure planned for the future.
This first picture is an adventure I take once or twice a year to visit my favorite historic apple orchard on an island not to far from where I live. Most often I take tea and sit right here.
The definition of Adventure is "an undertaking usually involving danger and unknown risks. a book recounting his many bold adventures. : the encountering of risks. the spirit of adventure. : an exciting or remarkable experience." Merriam-Webster
There is always a couple adventures to the sea each year.
Or just a drive down a country road to new horizons.
I guess I never thought about an adventure having to be "involving danger and unknown risks". For me is just going somewhere out of the ordinary in my day. Sometimes it is an adventure just to go to a new part of town, a new market or flower shop; but sometimes it is white water rafting with my grandson or zip-lining in the rain forests of Thailand. I absolutely love it all.
A found old barn deteriorating in the country side delights my adventure.
Visiting foreign locations sings to my heart.
As a girl I was often seeking adventures on my bicycle to new parts of town or swinging from branches in a tall tree. I was a bit of a daring young girl. My mother just looked the other way, which she often did.
Wednesday I am hopping a plane for California for a few days, then home for a day, and then on another adventure north to the Canadian border. I will be sitting right here under that umbrella for awhile. There will be several adventures and taking a two week break here. I will share when I return.
There may be a new trail to explore.
No rafting is planned, but had to put a picture in of a little "danger and risk".
In the meantime, enjoy some adventuring for yourself. Discover something new.
Hugs to you all! marilyn
