Sunset from a hammockTonight was the final sunset of our trip to the Cape. I just think the sunsets are so beautiful up here! I am crazy about taking pictures of them…but you know they say there are not two sunsets alike!

My hubby and I laid in the double hammock tonight, just watching it set over the bay. There are no words to express how beautiful God’s creation is. He is the master painter as he paints the sky with another beautiful sunset for us!

A Room With A View

Globo Chair, natural cushion on white-LI just visited a fabulous beach house on the Cape Cod Bay. It was quite gorgeous, all 10 bedrooms! Wow! A wonderful home for a large family, but who has families that big anymore?

I suppose some billionaire who buys it can rent it as a wonderful vacation home for a family with the extended families, all having their own room. I imagined if it were mine I would put a globo swing chair right in the window of the corner bedroom upstairs. I could sit there and look out across the bay all day long!

Salt Air

hammock standI love everything about the ocean and the bay and the salt air…the sights, the sounds, and the smells. The only thing is that the salt air is quite harmful to things.

Cars rust at a faster rate along the shores, and anything metal or steel does too. For instance, the best choice for a hammock stand if you live in a seaside town may not be the steel hammock stand, but rather a treated wooden hammock stand. Also, taking it in or covering it in the off-season would also prolong its life!

Thmulticolor-mayan-hammockere’s no greater beach relaxation than in a hammock. I am grateful for this little hut, perfect shade cover for the mayan hammock hanging from it.

I don’t look at the time, as in my opinion, there is no time on the beach. Rather, I just notice the sun setting deeper in the sky as I laze away the day!

Hiking On The Cape

Byer of Maine travel hammockToday we went for a short hike on one of our favorite trails. It was shady and cooler in the woods and the birds were busy flying around and singing. We aren’t supposed to feed them, but everyone does, so we brought a handful of bird seed in our pockets!

My husband and I each brought our own travel hammock along. When we got tired, and that happens quicker in the summer heat, we found perfect spots to hang them, and just chilled for a bit, watching the happy little birds. How awesome it was!

Cape Cod Cacoon

singleturquoiseboy water3I am wishing I would have brought my Cacoon hanging tree tent up to the cape this trip! I will do that next time! I will also bring the tripod stand, and the bug net,  for my cacoon.

It will be perfect on the deck in the evening, and when the mosquitoes come to call, BAM, I will be ready, and that bug net will be put down! Then I can still enjoy the bay view without being dinner!

Algoma hammock standUp here on the Cape Cod Bay for a week and in need of some relaxation! Even though the cape is bustling with people in the summer, I love that you can just step onto the beach of the bay and forget everything.

I could spend all day in my Algoma hammock stand watching out across the bay, watching the clouds roll by, watching the tide come in, and then go and looking for whales! Yes, we see an occasional spout! We also see a seal head pop up every once in a while. I

Evening Relaxation

Arc hammock standAfter a log hard day at work, one thing I really look forward to is a little “down time” at the end of the day. After dinner and dinner clean-up, I try to slip away to me back yard.

I like the evening time when the sun goes down and it’s cooler. I spend time relaxing in my hammock in my arc hammock stand, sometimes until dark!

Summer Reading

Algoma Caribbean hammock chair standThis summer, I am reading a bit more. I am taking the time to sit down and relax on my patio and read. I just finished A Year of Fog  It was a good story of a child disappearing in the San Francisco fog.

I spent most of the time reading it, in my hammock chair stand, on my patio. Yes, I always have other things/jobs/chores that I could or should be doing. But I am proud of myself for taking some time to enjoy what I like doing!

Sounds Of The Woods

Byer of Maine travel hammockYesterday I started talking about the sounds of the woods I enjoy while camping. Daytime and nighttime both have different sounds. When you sit and just listen, you’d be surprised at how many different sounds you hear! After a while, you realize the woods are quite noisy!

In the daytime, there are the birds calling, so many different ones! Then the insects and an occasional scamper of possibly a squirrel? At night, the music changes to locust, crickets, and other insects I don’t know. I lay in my one of my portable hammocks and get lost in the beautiful music!
