Hi Natasha!
I can never decide which one of these choices I want, they all look so lovely, fun, delicious.

I'm going to have to go with the beach option this time as I've had a very busy morning and am in need of a nap!

Beach, beach, beach. No question.

Second day in a row where the power's unexpectedly been off for hours at a time... finally back now, thank goodness, since it was getting HOT in here! (Nope, a/c still broken, but the fans work!) Now, we "just" have to get our water heater fixed--most likely buy a new one.

Yep, going to the beach sounds good about now! :D

HUGS!

Lying on the beach all the way :)

What a lovely picture.........

Trina said...

Absolutely, totally, 100%, without a doubt, flying high above the ground in a hot air balloon. Does it get any better than that?!?

I'd have to say lying on the beach. I think the ocean is such an incredible creation. I love to hear the sound of the waves and look out into the never ending water and waves. I don't get to see the ocean much since I live in the middle of the country. Last time I was anywhere near a body of water bigger than a puddle was 4 years ago!

I don't like heights, so I'll take that beach with a big bottle of sunscreen!

Greetings!

Beach, definitely. While I love being in the air, I've always done it in airplanes, and I'm just not sure how I'd care for the ride.

Ntm, 5a is an hour to stay up to, not awaken at, in my not particularly humble opinion! :-D

Besides, balloons are so pretty to watch from the ground, all the colors & patterns & all. :-)

Resting on the beach - what a lovely beach :)

Natasha said...

JanetDavies - I am 100% with you...it's hard to decide because both seem like such fun but I'm going for the beach ...to lay in the sand, listening to waves and feel the warm sun while reading or better yet napping would a much needed slice of heaven

Oh Amanda - I SOOO wish you lived closer so I could invite you over to indulge in a little a/c!! I hope everything is working/fixed now ...and I'm with ya ...the beach...oh the beach would make me SUPER happy right now

Nathaie - hello, how are you?? So nice to have you here! It seems as though the beach is the place to be right now...how I wish I could get everyone together for a beach day!

Trina!! How are you?? You know I was going with beach but your enthusiasm made me want to be in that balloon...how about we take a hot air balloon to the beach?????

Laura - it's been WAY too long..how are you?? You and I are the wave watchers I dig that and your puddle comment made me laugh so hard I cried!

Kathy - awesome! The beach it is...if you bring the big bottle of sun tan lotion I'll bring the bottle of wine? champagne? some exotic fun mix for the Thursday Sweet Treat beach outing! LOL

Phoenix - superb idea..although I suggested to Trina that we take a balloon ride to the beach I dig the idea of watching them from the sand as well ...while listening to the waves....is anyone else grabbing their bathing suit and a bag because I'm ready to go now!

Jodi - I'm with ya..we're with ya ...let's go!!!

MooreMagnets said...

I'll take the beach! But I would rather be scuba diving in that crystal clear water! Save me a cold drink for later! Cheers!

Natasha said...

Jenjen - it's just great to see you here again...I owe you an email...I owe many emails to people and will be getting in touch this week...and the beach..oh to have a beach party!

MooreMagnets!! How are you?? So awesome to see you here!! I have never been scuba diving but REALLY want to...I'll come to the beach via balloon with Trina, scuba with you, watch balloons from the beach with Phoenix and drink with everyone...I LOVE this

while I have occasionally dreamed of soaring in a hot air balloon, it's still beachbeachbeachbeachbeach for me, no contest.

I float in my backyard pool (8ft across and 18 inches deep), water flecked with bloated grasshoppers and assorted slimy things, and imagine I'm at that sandy beach, in those crystal clear waters. Yes, my imagination gets quite a workout . . but I close my eyes and I'm almost there. Now if I could only banish the smell of chlorine bleach, jugs of which I pour into my little oasis, in a feeble attempt to banish the slimy squigglers . . oh, where's a cabana boy when you need one???

Frenzy23 said...

Hot air balloon, for sure. Mostly because I've never been in one.
I love the beach, but in the Cleveland area I'm lucky to be able to go anytime. Being way up in the air is much more of a novelty.

lisianblue said...

I game - lets take a ride in a hot air balloon to the beach!

Otherwise, definitely the beach! But, I'd probably be in the water a lot - I love swimming in the ocean, a real treat for this desert mouse.

A beach party would be fun!! then we can all nap - then get up and start all over again!!! :)

lo - captcha is hotlyza!!!

Natasha said...

Aquamaureen - please! I could not stop laughing at your call for a cabana boy!! I want to see your little oasis...even with the slimy things it sounds magical ....LOL..cabana boy...we are so having one at the TST beach outing!

Frenzy - I'm with ya...I've never been in a balloon so Trina suggested a balloon ride and I think we should take one to the beach..whaddya think??

Lisian - you adorable desert mouse...a balloon ride to the beach it is then! And Aqua's bringing a cabana boy too! LOL

lisianblue said...

Just one cabana boy????

Natasha said...

Lisian - what was I thinking?? You're right ...a cabana boy for everyone..(you have NO idea how hard I just laughed)

Trina said...

Natasha, A hot air balloon ride to the beach (where all the lovely cabana boys stand ready to wait on our every whim) sounds like a lovely compromise! I'm up, up, up for that!

Trina

Lauren said...

oh for sure right now I'd take the sand between my toes!!

that photo looks like paradise. thanks for the escape!!

The beach, any time, all the time...
Hello Everyone!

aquamaureen said...

Your wishes are my commands. I shall commence at once to round up as many cabana boys as I can. Will keep you posted on my progress. (In order to assure quality service from aforementioned CBs, I shall need to conduct lengthy interviews, won't I?)
