Hammocking 2016

First Hammock of the year! Perfect weather, 65○F.

It’s early afternoon, I sent my boyfriend off to work and quickly decided what I wanted to do. There were so many options, I could spend more time working out, maybe go for a run…. I could go for a drive then run.
Oh! I know, I could go hammocking and since the sky was beautiful, I’ll bring my camera and tripod. So I took the long way out to the lake, stopped on the side of the road and snapped a few scenic views here and there.
I continued on my journey to hammock, destined to stop anywhere by any means to take a photo. All winter, I’ve been wanting to take some photos, but I was not ready to shoot some cold things. Spring is here and my heart is pumping. I feel so good in the nice weather, but I think everyone does. I drove with my windows down and my sun roof open, thinking of nothing and listening to the Good Vibes playlist on Spotify. It’s kind of my feel good music.
When I got to the park I wanted to hammock at, it was closed. Luckily the park is next to a campground where there was available parking. I grabbed my backpack and my tripod and began my short hike to my two trees.
At first I wanted to walk all the way to the back of the park, try to get to an opening in the trees where I could set up my hammock and get an awesome view of the lake, I’ll have to find that next time though. When I got about halfway, I heard construction going on in the nearby neighborhood and I decided that dull buzzing sound was not on my list of happiness today and turned around. I found two trees that seemed complicated by made due and set up my mini camp. I took a few videos and photos of myself in the hammock because why not and I also wrote a little in my journal. I decided that the nature was doing wonders for me, so I might as well enjoy it.
After my hammock craving was satisfied for today, I packed up and head out towards the military tanks by a base camp. I climbed on top of one and took pictures as the sun drifted to the other side of the world. It was a beautiful sunset, perfect for a beautiful day.
