One of my very favorite ways to relax is in a hot bath with a cup of coffee, a sweet treat, and a great book. If I'm lucky, my daughter will make these bath salts again for me (her science project was "bath bubblers" and they turned out great!).
Every time I leave home, this is the view I have of the Bed & Breakfast across the street. The proprietor has set up two Adirondack chairs looking out at the bay and guests can take their glass of wine out and relax with a view.
While the B&B stays pretty busy, most people who come to Westport to relax stay at the state park. Sites are a very short walk to the beach and it is a popular place!
And what could be more relaxing than fishing? Here my husband and son angle for some perch off of the dock. My brother and I spent a lot of time fishing off the docks when we were little. The best bait? Red licorice, I kid you not!
Here is a shot of the marina by night. The water is so calm and the sky so pretty that it is a very relaxing sight. Some of the charter boats are getting ready to take off on a little search for the chicken of the sea. It's tuna season and a lot of people seek relaxation on a charter trip. That would be action filled relaxation!
Here's a spot that I think is a little piece of heaven. I sometimes walk from my house and take a book or my camera. At the end of the boardwalk are two benches that are perfect for relaxing with your book, soaking up the sun, or just gazing out over the beach. I took the second picture with a slower shutter speed and asked my daughter to get up and walk away after I pushed the shutter button. The best part about this spot is that not many people know about it so I rarely encounter other people.
Finally, my favorite place in town, the supplier of the ultimate relaxation tools: the library. I love the way this place looks at night when it is lit up.
Thank you for visiting my town through my lens.
