Over the week of the Fourth of July, I had the pleasure of vacationing at the Eastern Shore on the Chesapeake Bay. It’s my first time renting a bay waterfront home and probably not my last. The Bay and Beach both have their upsides, but something about the quietness bay and your own private beach and dock makes it a much more inviting place to kick back and relax.

Hubby, Alpha and I went up early and took some quality time catching crabs, exploring the adjoining rivers and creeks by boat, and kicking back. Twin sis and her family of four followed suit for the last three days.

Boating, basking in the sun, watching sunsets on the edge of our private dock, eating lots of good food, catching up on some reading, picking my favorite beach rocks with Julie (who wanted all of the clear ones) and enjoying a “surprise-filled” 4th was our itinerary.

And it was perfect.

Definitely a trip never to be forgotten in this household.

Clear the Way for this Chair.

I love lucite. Just type “lucite” in my blogs search field and you’ll have a field day of posts to read. <wink>. This crystal clear material was introduced in the 1040’s and has been a hit material ever since for interior design furniture, accessories, and even art. I found this clean lined Invisibles Light Chair from Kartell. It’s cool, calm and mystical quality would work as an agent in any room. Add an eye-catching block printed or fur accent pillow as a seat and you’ve got an intriguing place to have a seat.
