It’s Labor Day – Get Out and Play!

It’s Labor Day – Get Out and Play!

Of course as Nurses, many of us are working Labor Day but Nurses are experts at tweaking their schedule to compensate for working holidays and weekend. I will be spending the week hiking in Yosemite National Park. This year our country celebrates one hundred years of National Parks. So, get out and play!

For the last 4 summers, I have taken large chunks of time off to travel. This year brought me to Iceland, exploring volcanos, glaciers and waterfalls. 

Some days I channeled the Viking in me....

And I managed to get out of Iceland before any volcanic eruptions or glacial floods. But there are lots of volcanoes that are long overdue, so stay tuned for Katla and Hekla, the angry sister volcanoes that are ready to blow!

Life is short, we work hard and we deserve to play - so this Labor Day (or sometime this month), get out and play!
