The weather was beautiful when we flew in, but it started pouring as soon as we began our hike through the Bjuröklubb nature reserve. That meant that we couldn't get as great of a view from the lighthouse, but it was pretty in its own way.
A middle-school version of myself emerged during that ride. About 10 years ago, I went to a summer camp where we would do days-long hiking and canoeing trips, yet I had not stepped foot in a canoe since. I was nostalgic as the boat wobbled beneath my feet, water danced from the paddle onto my face, and the only sounds were those of nature. The beautiful flowers floating on the water made the trip even more serene, and it was such a treat when they happened to join my paddle out of the water.
As if the flocks of ducks and their ducklings, gulls, and flora didn't give us a beautiful enough scene of nature, a rainbow appeared! I've seen a few rainbows in my life, but never one in such a perfect arc form.
If that couldn't excite my inner child, I don't know what could.
