Marmee, That picture is PARADISE... And --I love sleeping when I can hear the ocean... I can surely sleep GREAT there.

Beautiful, serene, relaxing photo...Like I said, PARADISE.

Hugs,
Betsy

Naps at the beach are most certainly paradise, Marmee. As well as lounging, talking, swimming, walking, laughing, eating, blogging, ... paradise... this week anyway... thanks for sharing paradise with me for a few days!!!!

Rose said...

Oh, definitely! I've been taking lots of naps since returning from Chicago; sometimes you just need to recharge your batteries:)

Darla said...

Just beautiful!! Glad ya'll can enjoy your time together as sisters, that's very special!

Re said...

Oh yes guilt free napping surely has to be a part of paradise

marmee said...

betsy,
yes having the ocean as your background is the best for sleeping and doing just about anything you want to at the beach.
paradise was great while it lasted.

darla,

we have had the most wonderful special days together...just sisters.

marmee said...

re,

time to recharge should never be accompanied by guilt...they do always seem better on a vacation.

marmee said...

marmee said...

cheryl, i love napping and the beach...they both represent paradise to me. you really should try to nap some...i find it quite refreshing.

marmee said...

aunty belle,

thank you kindly!

marmee said...

tina,

naps are my little time out of all the demands around here...i find they are necessary, sometimes.

marmee said...

susie,
as you can imagine i took a bunch of beach photos so narrowing it down to one to represent paradise was hard...but i too could feel the beach the wind the softness of the yellow sky, while the birds were flying by...i really loved this one.
meems and i did have a wonderful relaxing time at the beach.
