Sometimes you just have to smell the herbs!
We hiked out to the beach to watch seals play in the surf. With high knees we marched through high grass, our trekking poles held high in the air to prevent the bombing of arctic terns. The midnight sun was low on the horizon, and the field was covered in a blanket of golden light. At the beach, I got down on my knees to look at the bouquet tiny flowers growing in the tundra-like grass. I wondered if they smelled as beautiful as they looked? I got down on my belly and placed my face ear-deep into greenery. The smell was wonderful. I could smell each of the flowers individually mixed with the earthy smell of fresh soil. It was invigorating. I told everyone with me that they needed to get down and smell the flowers. One by one, the members of our groups got down on their bellies to smell the flowers. Despite all of the fun adventures we had on the itinerary, this spontaneous moment of being a kid again, face deep in the grass, was a highlight of the trip.
