@home in Georgetown ~ Forest Bathing at Thomas Roosevelt Island!

Priceless little urban get away…President Teddy Roosevelt was known as the conservation president.  Roosevelt Island is such a great tribute and such an easily accessible reminder of how legendary the story and how valuable the asset, our National Park System!

Did you know that forest bathing is a staple of preventive healthcare and healing in Japan? I first heard of forest bathing on NPR on one of my drives out of Cleveland to Washington. How convenient!   A forest bath is not a bath or a hike, but an immersion of the senses.  The guest, therapy guide, Melanie Choukas-Bradley, leads forest bathing retreats at Roosevelt Island.

So treat yourself to a forest bath!  The bike ride there alone,  is worth the price of admission!
