Is this a dream?

Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 1 April 2013 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

...Mike captured me on a hanging, curtained hammock-for-two in a secluded corner of the ship's deck.
(I looked at him, forgetting he was using the tilted LCD screen.)

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

So natural and lovely, love it! I've never sat or slept in a hammock before,except I did sleep in a similar concept we call 'sarong' (cloth suspension from the ceiling) as a baby! Ought to try hammock one of these days!

Jeff's comment is making me chuckle Judy... I knew someone would pick up on that! Seriously though, you look MAR-VE-LOUS girlfriend! Love that smile, I think cruise vacation agree with you! ♥
