    And If You Fall Asleep...

    Its hard not to fall asleep in a rocking hammock, but I try not to move to one side. I've gotten hammock rope dents on the left side of my face before...no fun.

    Specially When I Feel Tranquillity

    Is there more comfort?? For me not. Laying in hammock on the verandah, reading a book, listening to music, enjoying the nature, sleeping or spending the time with someone special in a huge one by the beach...mmmm, just paradise!!!
