Taking a morning stroll around the township of Denmark yesterday was a relaxing beginning to my day.
Being out of the main tourist season I found it rather enjoyable ambling the quiet meandering roads, content to be unseen watching life in motion surrounding me.

Having a large community of alternative residents and a number of healing retreats dotted around the outskirts of the town I found that a many of the retailers were targeting this niche of the market.
Browsing the stores and realizing that my attraction to 'stuff' had disappeared had me smiling to myself as I wandered along.................
