Nothing like a hammock over the ocean
Seriously, there's nothing like it. This is my favorite tree in the whole world, and it gets even better when we string a hammock up in it. So much better that one day while we were there, the Travel Channel came by and asked if they could film it for a final segment in the Hawaii special they were finishing up - no kidding! The cameraman lined up the shot as the hostess made her final comments, signing off the segment with a toss of the lei into the water at sunset with our little hammock swaying behind it. We were so proud (sniff sniff). OK enough with the sappiness but laying in that hammock with the gentle surf rolling in and out, dappled shade from the keawe tree, a few whales jumping off in the distance and the smell of charcoal and lighter fluid, okay the chicken too, is my idea of a stay-cation!
