I love the sounds of the ocean when the tide comes in, but I prefer to BE in the forest and enjoy nature. We get some beautiful birdsong here, and it is so quiet. I cant hear a thing right now, and because of that, I feel at peace. I do not like city living, traffic noises and big city construction noises.....would drive me insane. No wonder all the city folk come here for a rest and a bit of a holiday.
