Decadence

I have an outdoor shower.  (Yes, before you ask, I also have a normal indoor shower and a bathroom.)

This past summer I have been using my outdoor shower on a daily basis.  In the morning I go to the gym.  Then to the beach to swim in ocean.

Then back home to wash off the sweat and salt in the warmth of my blissful shower.20190821_151306

Being a city dweller, primarily, for the vast majority of my life an outdoor shower is total and absolute pleasure.

Standing in the shower as the water flows down over me, with the trees and hedges swaying in the breeze, the bees and hornets and wasps buzzing around,  the flowers spreading their aroma, what could be more decadent?

I love my outdoor shower. So do the carpenter bees who are constantly trying to burrow into the wooden shower enclosure and build their nests.  The bees and I have become mutual beneficiaries of the shower. I guess that’s how nature works.

If you can’t have your own waterfall then go for an outdoor shower.
