Mind Alive Monday ~ Fishing
Dave gave me a thumb drive and I stole some of the photos to post on the web. This is from the trip to Costa Rica in February that Dave and Nancy took. Fishing is a great stress release because as Dave would say it's a huge dopamine release when you finally catch that fish! That and you're almost never alone on a boat, because you'll need help dragging in the "Big One" (clearly not seen in this photo). And a fishing trip wouldn't be a trip without the company of a few adult beverages adding to the good times!
Just the image of gentle breeze and the smell of the ocean relaxes me! Dave bounced around ideas about having downloadable sounds such as the surf as supplements for the AVEs and of course moving the office down there lol. All the fresh fruits and veggies along with ample sun for vitamin D production given his nice tan, leads to good health, though he managed to check up on us a few times each week and check e-mail, so not quite completely work free vacation.
Going new places and experiencing new things is great for the brain to dance in dendrites. Something to consider on your next vacation.
