Nature and Animal Therapy

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The video I have selected for this post is a two minute clip of some beautiful, soothing music and lovely flower images.  Enjoy!

I have always found it very therapeutic and soothing to be in nature and around animals!  The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took back in June of this year at a nature park. It was a treat for me to see the alpacas especially, since I don't get to see these animals often.  Even though you are unable to see it, they are in a really huge enclosure!  They love to come close and see the people that visit...and I enjoyed their presence very much.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.


Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.

  3. Those alpacas are so cute, very nosy, they like company, and come to see what is happening. Our neighbour has 2 boys,( alpaca males, that is!!) so I will ask if I can get some pics for my blog. Cheers from Jean

  5. I love the shaggy alpacas. I agree that being around animals is great therapy. This is a medical fact. I read that out blood pressure is reduced and tension relaxed by animals.

  6. They seem to be such sweet animals. I, too, find animals so wonderful to be around. It is a kind of therapy for me to spend time with them.

  7. Nature has a calming effect on me. That's why I love to have my windows and doors open to the sounds of birds and breathe in 'real' air. I like the way you do your header. I am going to try to change mine on my own. I changed the 'background' but my daughter always creates me a matching 'header.' She is so busy plus I need to learn to do this myself. Did you make your own? I like it!

  16. It is very therapeutic to be in nature and among animals isn't it? That's why I love hiking. I love being in nature with nothing but the sounds of the birds and the wind in the threes. It's such a beautiful moment.

  17. Two beautiful photos Linda. Alpacas are so cute and those geese too. I will come back and load your video later as I am on my IPad and it won't load up. I think I must have to download an additional software but as I am not an expert on these things, I need to a little extra help. Have a great day :)
