"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.

Everything coconuts

Pardon my language... My text to my Miami bestie tonight after she tortured me with "I'm sailing and it's chilly I had to wear a jacket because it's 60 degrees" wah wah wah.

To which I responded:  "I wear a f-ing utilitarian down north face jacket to my knees, a hat, gloves, knee high snow boots AND leg warmers!!!! Uuuggghhhhh lol F*** WINTER. I need everything coconuts right now. "

Everything coconuts. Coconut oil, coconut lotion, coconut sun tan spray, coconut water, coconut milk, coconut vodka, coconut chips, coconut sea salt hair spray, coconut cups to drink out of, coconut bubbly water, coconut perfume, coconut cream, coconut mornings by the j band, my little coconut baby, coconut grove, my friends awesome blog smashing coconuts, whole coconuts. I want everything coconut because that means I'll be somewhere warm, tropical, exotic, amazing, happy.  

It looks warm here!!

White sandy beach in Hawaii

"White Sandy Beach Of Hawai'i"

I saw you in my dream

We were walking hand in hand

On a white sandy beach of Hawaii

We were playing in the sun

We were having so much fun

On a white sandy beach of Hawaii

The sound of the ocean

Soothes my restless soul

The sound of the ocean

Rocks me all night long

Those half-hound summer days

lying there in the sun

On a white sandy beach of Hawaii

The sound of the ocean

Soothes my restless soul

The sound of the ocean

Rocks me all night long

Last night in my dream

I saw your face again

We were there in the sun

On a white sandy beach

On... oooonnnnn of Hawaii

Beautiful by nature

What more could you ask for?? Miami cityscape, a rainbow, salty air, sunshine, Not For Navigation cushions..and on this sailing vessel Sabrosura - amazing people, laughs, adventure, stories, and of course, champagne. 

Ahhhhhhh paradise.

Seaward ho! Hang the treasure! It's the glory of the sea that has turned my head.

Treasure island... There must be a lot of them! This one near Florida's St. Petersburg beach looks like coral in the map design featured here. 

It looks warm and fun too!
