"Mainer"

There is some validity to this {verb} "Mainer" and I'm beginning to understand it. Every time I've had a work related event in Maine, as that's the only reason I've visited Maine in the past years, I am so pleasantly surprised by the kindness.  

People are helpful, friendly, pretty down to earth, they seem organic, and like they have a different appreciation for life. I love all the Chevys and Fords I see, especially the ones hauling vintage campers like the 60's & 70's style teardrop made by Airstream. It seems people flock to Maine for their love of nature and the land. To slow down and take a fresh breath of green air. 

For those folks residing in Maine, the ones I've met hold true to my now definition of a "Mainer" . Kind, natural, polite, lovers of the land. Even though I live in Massachusetts, I feel like I'm PART "Mainer". 

And how would we define a "massachusettser"???? Hmmmmm that's a blog for a rainy day.

Any day now

Finally today the birds were chirping, the sun was shining, and I even caught a glimpse of something green in the distance. Everyone was happy too which is a rarity in these parts.  

Any day now I'm ready to wake up to spring here to stay. And the bustle of summer to be back... Most people start planning a trip to the Cape...visiting friends in  Hyannis perhaps? If so, here's the perfect gift: a custom chart pillow.

play time

One good thing about every day after dec 21 is it stays lighter a minute longer each day. And that's about the only good thing until summer is here.  

Luckily I get to look at cool maps and charts of warm and sometimes exotic areas of the world. This keeps me inspired and focused on why I work so hard: play time. Aka fun in the sun!!  

I have my heart set on a Bahamas trip this year, but hawaii doesn't sound too bad either!

How many bottles of beer...in the bag?!?

Boating and drinking go hand in hand. Thankfully our Not For Navigation chart and map bags are constructed so strong they can tote all your booze and then some! The clip close tote has earned a new title...booze bag ;)

Next time you're packing your cooler see how many beers you can fit in your chart tote! Or champagne, or wine, or rum... For a little punch!  

Take a pic and post it for us to see! How many bottles fit in your  { Not For Navigation } bag!
