Exploring Nature | {The Serenity Project}

My little family and I love getting out in nature, walking, exploring and photographing.

We recently visited the Cibola Nature Center, which is about half an hour from our house. I don’t know why we had not visited there before!

Although South Texas is very  hot and humid this time of year, the weather was pretty good that day. We were blessed with some sun after a week of rain. And, amazingly, we had the place to ourselves!

My daughter absolutely loved the cypress trees and exploring the creek. She spotted lots of tadpoles and tiny fish, raccoon and deer tracks, butterflies and roly polys (these are her favorites!).

It was a beautiful day with family, doing what we love to do. We followed our walk with another of our favorite activities: lunch together.

I love discovering parks and trails wherever we live. I’m so glad we took the time to visit!  Walks through nature are the best way for us to  ground ourselves and reconnect with nature and each other.


The Serenity Project is a collaborative photography project featuring images that bring a sense of peace and calm. Please continue the circle to Wendy May to find what brought her some serenity this month.

  1. Oh wow – what a great park you discovered. The trees in the first images are huge. I really like that you have captured E walking across the tree stumps. That really gives you a sense how big those trees are. Love the last water image too.
