The Perfect Gift

 hammock with standMy husband and I attended a family wedding last weekend.  It was for a beautiful, young couple, in love, with their whole life ahead of them.

I wasn’t sure what to get them for a gift? Of course they had a registry, but I wanted to do something different, something special, something that they probably wouldn’t buy themselves. I chose a hammock stand set…a perfect gift! I hope they will spend quality time together in it for years to come!

Backyard Relaxing

Caribbean jumbo hammock chairsOne of my favorite parts of summer is being out in my back yard. It’s actually my favorite place, and, the best part is that I don’t even have to leave home!

I love sitting in one of my hammock chairs. I supposed you could call them cheap hammock chairs because they certainly were a reasonable price. But the quality is wonderful and they have held up for several years so far!

Rosemary Is For Remembrance

Key West Caribbean Jumbo Hammock ChairRosemary is one of my favorite herbs. There is a saying that rosemary is for remembrance. If the winter isn’t too harsh, it will come back in the spring, making it a tender perennial.

I like the piney woodsy smell it releases as I brush by it to get in my mayan hammock chair. It can also be used in cooking with fish, poultry, and steaks.

Goodbye Cape Cod

Bliss Hammocks Brazilian hammock - GaucamoleGoodbye, for now…but I will return soon. I have loved my time with you this past week. I enjoyed your ocean tides and bay views. I enjoyed your ocean breezes.

I enjoyed trekking over sand dunes to reach the ocean shore, even though it made me quite tired! But the view was worth it! I only wish there was a place in the dunes that I could’ve hung my Bliss Hammocks travel hammock…but, alas, no trees…

The Final Sunset

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!
