Negative ions and the magic rock

by Andrea Mulder-Slater

Living and working by the sea has many benefits,  not the least of which is the absolute abundance of negative ions.

These lovely little molecules are invisible, but pack quite a punch -- and they are found in abundance near large bodies of water. 

Negative ions are thought to create a biochemical reaction that increases levels of serotonin in the body. This mood chemical helps to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost energy.

Pretty cool, right? This is why beach walks make folks feel so refreshed.

Thanks to the rain we've been experiencing, its been a while (too long!) since we've been able to get outside and enjoy a seaside walk. So, I thought I'd post some photos from a recent "magic rock" adventure.

The magic rock is located just up the coast from our studio. It makes appearances in our art from time to time and visiting it always helps to recharge the batteries.
