When I was touring off-road by bicycle, I met a gal who had just returned from a journey. She’d spent the previous three months on her horse searching for a fabled lost opal mine.
Her story had an impact on me. I admired her willingness to drop everything to follow her dream. I was envious of the time she was able to spend searching and being close to nature. How can we incorporate this spirit of adventure into our daily lives? How can we take advantage of every opportunity to be close to nature and enjoy all it has to offer?
Keeping this spirit alive and respecting Nature is what inspired me to create the Opal Outdoors collection. Explore and be present, be outdoors. Opal Outdoors ... Searching for lost opal mines.
