The lovely Beth R., who has followed along with Our Wander Life, sent us some really great images of her recent adventures. I am super excited to share these photos with you today! Beth mentioned that our posts have helped inspire her to start getting out more and exploring, while also being able to enjoying alone time with only her camera. During her exploring, she chose to honor Veterans Day, by visiting places with monuments to soldiers and Veterans, such as––the Virginia War Memorial, Oakwood Cemetery, Tredegar & Brown's Island, along with Libby Hill & Chimborazo Park.
Spending time alone with ourselves can sometimes be difficult, but Beth really wanted to get out and enjoy her time––while listening to the sounds of the river, the trains, the birds, and taking in a moment of complete silence.
She loves "older cemeteries and being able to see the way people remember and pay tribute to loved ones. The detailed work and the display of love."
All of this is able to be seen in the way she has chosen to capture the moments. Thank you for sharing your adventures with us Beth! You inspire us to keep on wandering.
"Unlike a drop of water which loses its identity when it joins the ocean, man does not lose his being in the society in which he lives. Man's life is independent. He is born not for the development of the society alone, but for the development of his self." ––B. R. Ambedkar
We would love to hear all about your adventures as well! Please send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
This post is dedicated to all of our friends who have a tough time getting out and wandering alone. I know it's hard when you don't have a partner, and I am thankful to have someone on most days I go out. I do treasure my alone time and find it to be necessary for my growth as an individual, but it took me many years to get to this point. Just remember, it starts with one single step, and we are so happy to be here encouraging you along the way!
