Went for a walk and noticed that the wild strawberries are blooming. Didn't have my camera with me, so I snapped this with my cellphone. #outforawalk #exercise #nature #naturewalk #wildflower #hike #walking #wildstrawberry

Another Sea Lion swimming. I guess they like to keep their head above water when not diving for fish. It's much easier to breathe that way, lol. #canon #canonphotography #canon_photography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #alaska #alaskawildlife #alaskaphotography #travel #travelphotography #vacation #canon5dmarkII #canoncamera #landscape #landscapephotography #maggiestravels #maggiesphotos #maggiesphotography #nature #naturephotography #sealion #swimming

How do you tell a seal from a sea lion? One way is the ears. Sea Lions have ear flaps, while you would have to look long and hard to find where a seal's ears would be. #canon #canonphotography #canon_photography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #alaska #alaskawildlife #alaskaphotography #travel #travelphotography #vacation #canon5dmarkII #canoncamera #landscape #landscapephotography #maggiestravels #maggiesphotos #maggiesphotography #nature #naturephotography #sealion #earflaps

I didn't realize how much I missed going for a walk at home. We have been away so much over the past 10 years that, even when we came home, we didn't have time to develop any of our previously enjoyed habits/activities. To be fair, much of that time I had to spend sitting in my lazy-boy chair. But now that I am beginning to feel better, finally, I am a little more mobile. And even though I didn't allow my handicap to depress me, right now I definitely feel much happier. Yesterday I went for my first walk in a very long time. I wasn't sure how far I would get, but living on a dead end road in the country sure does beckon me to get out and try. I made it as far as the neighbour's driveway - driveways are a lot farther apart in the country. Here everyone owns a minimum of 25 acres. So, I made it to the next driveway and back, then spent the day doing lots of chores. What a difference from the last 2 years when I could barely crawl up the 4 steps to the bathroom! Today, I walked to the neighbour's driveway again, but then challenged myself to walk farther. I made it to the base of the taller hill, almost to the end of our road! Almost double the distance as yesterday! Then I drove hubby to TSC, after which I went grocery shopping. Typically grocery shopping just about kills me, but today I came out of the store, somewhat sore, loaded the vehicle, drove home, put the groceries away and made lunch. Was I tired and sore - of course! But guess what, it was only a 6 or 7 sore, rather than a 9 or 10. I'm sorry you cannot hear the birds chirping and the grouse drumming while scrolling through the photos (I took these with my cellphone), but it was the most uplifting sound I've heard in a long, long time. I immediately fell in love with walking in the country, all over again (I used to walk A LOT). Such a beautiful, sunny and warm day, with nature coming to life all around me. I have always loved spring, but now I'm feeling like I am getting a spring in my step again. The moral of this story, is NEVER GIVE UP! I could easily have given up these past few years. I could have said I would never get better, and I was doomed to a life of pain and misery. But I knew that

More Sea Lions. It was almost time to leave, so I figured I'd get in a few more shots, since I wasn't sure when, or if, I would ever see any of these creatures again. #canon #canonphotography #canon_photography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #alaska #alaskawildlife #alaskaphotography #travel #travelphotography #vacation #canon5dmarkII #canoncamera #landscape #landscapephotography #maggiestravels #maggiesphotos #maggiesphotography #nature #naturephotography

Another Horned Puffin that came swooping by us. I still don't know how I managed to get the camera in position and snap away before he was gone.

maggierekowski's Media: Again, not one of my best photos, but considering this was almost totally black, it didn't turn out

Again, not one of my best photos, but considering this was almost totally black, it didn't turn out too bad. Why was it black? Well, can you see deep inside the rock crease - there's ledge where the puffins were sitting. Every once in awhile one would come out and whiz by us. This one was just emerging from the deep dark place. Normally I would have adjusted the camera, but when you're on a cruise and the boat is leaving, you have to act fast. I just up and pointed the camera, snapped the shutter, and ended up with a terrible photo - almost totally black! So, being tenacious, I always try to fix the unfixable. This time, even though it's not great, it's also not too horrible. Did I succeed? You be the judge. #canon #canonphotography #canon_photography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #alaska #alaskawildlife #alaskaphotography #travel #travelphotography #vacation #canon5dmarkII #canoncamera #landscape #landscapephotography #maggiestravels #maggiesphotos #maggiesphotography #nature #naturephotography #hornedpuffin #puffin

But it's so much more

Today is a good day. First of all, it's sunny, after days and days of rain. But it's so much more than that. 1. My friendly scale says I am down 23 pounds since March. 2. Dr. Magic (my stem cell doctor) has effectively removed most of my chronic pain. 3. I can walk up and down the stairs like a normal person again. 4. I am back at my rehab exercises, plus a few extra yoga moves. 5. My Magic Needler (acupuncturist) removes almost all my muscular aches and pains (fibromyalgia). 6. My Magic Needler also is working on slowly draining all the built up lymphedema which has caused me so much pain over the years. Isn't it interesting that after so many medical appointments, he is the only one who identified this problem? All the other doctors just said it was fat, but i gotta say, it doesnt hurt when you take your finger and poke your fat - it sure does hurt when you poke an area swollen with lymphedema! 7. Although I always felt there was hope at the end of the tunnel, it seemed I just couldn't find the solutions I needed. Now I have medical professionals in my corner, and all around me is brighter. Cannot wait to see what is next! More photography? I sure hope so! Hiking again? It may take awhile, but anything is possible now. Gardening again? Hopefully next spring/summer. I still have a long way to go, but life is good again! Hope is running rampant once again. Yes, it's a good day! #stemcell #stemcells #chronicpain #pain #painrelief #naturalpainrelief #naturalhealth #fibromyalgia #arthritis #flareup #itsagoodday #goodday

As I was watching for Puffins, this Pelagic Cormorant swooped by. Of course I had to try for a photo! Again, this one was cropped alot, but didn't turn out too badly. How I wish I had a larger lens! Even though the 400 mm lens is fantastic, it still leaves a little to be desired at a distance. The boat couldn't safely come any closer to the rocks, so we made do with what we had. #canon #canonphotography #canon_photography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #alaska #alaskawildlife #alaskaphotography #travel #travelphotography #vacation #canon5dmarkII #canoncamera #landscape #landscapephotography #maggiestravels #maggiesphotos #maggiesphotography #nature #naturephotography #cormorant #pelagiccormorant

Not the clearest photo of a Horned Puffin, but it has been cropped - a LOT! Check out the second photo to see the original. I really wanted to get some photos of Puffins because - well, I had never seen any, lol. And they are so colorful. We saw a number of them but whoa, they sure do fly fast! I wasn't even sure I could focus on one that quickly. First you see them, then they're gone, just like the swallows we have at home, just a little larger (although they are still fairly small). Did you know that Alaska has two varieties of Puffins? Yep, the Horned Puffin in these photos, and the Tufted Puffin. Google them to see the differences. #canon #canonphotography #canon_photography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #alaska #alaskawildlife #alaskaphotography #travel #travelphotography #vacation #canon5dmarkII #canoncamera #landscape #landscapephotography #maggiestravels #maggiesphotos #maggiesphotography #nature #naturephotography #puffin #daycruise #lulubelle
