Need to release your brain from its milelong list of to-dos and responsibilities? Grant yourself a 3 minute micro-retreat exploring the beautiful natural world through explore.org.
Have you ever watched how a nesting puffin tends to her egg? I didn’t know it until it happened but watching a puffin tending to her egg in her nest might be on my bucket list and I might have just checked that one off! It was definitely a lovely and special thing to behold.
No, I have not been on a special expedition to Seal Island in Maine. I simply pulled up explore.org and did some exploring.
I digitally wandered around a bit, peaking at a beach in Hawaii in its real-time sunrise, horses in Kentucky in the morning mist, grizzly bears fishing in a river (somewhere comfortably far off) and landed at the webcam of the Puffin Burrow on Seal Island, Maine..
I think my heart beat might have actually slowed down a bit watching that puffin, and definitely some neck muscles released. Perhaps this is another avenue towards those quiet moments watching something peaceful and calming. Moments like getting lost looking into a fish tank, staring at a campfire, or gazing out across a vast vista from a mountain top. Sigh.
So. What will be your favorite webcam category on explore.org? The bears? Kitten Rescue? The Zen Scapes? The Puffins (found in Birds)?
