Morning dips in the Mediterranean Sea 🐠
Menorca reminds people of what the Mediterranean used to be like 40 years ago. Such a beautiful island and so unspoilt by time. There are many, many things to do and see, so ensure you hire a car to visit all the serenity the island has to offer. Beaches are many, sandy, rocky, large and small. We loved everything about Menorca, its cleanliness, the ethos of its people, its honest face. It doesn't pretend to be anything its not. If I must say there is something I dislike about it, it would be the day your plane lifts off to take you home.
It's Saturday. You wake up, make coffee, and enjoy breakfast with a view of the Washington Monument. It's a beautiful day in the city. After a quick walk to the market for some essentials, you take a book to the roof deck to relax. After a couple of hours in the sun, a workout is in order. Down to the gym. You bump into neighbors and plan an impromptu dinner at Sfoglina. As you leave for the evening, you all decide to take the bus since it pulled up just as you walked out. After an amazing dinner, you stroll home then grab a cup of hot chocolate from your lobby coffee bar before heading up to relax with a bubble bath before bed. You crave a city lifestyle--a place high above the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to the conveniences that make urban dwelling so wonderful. Welcome to Unit #720 at Wilshire Park. The view of the Washington Monument is complemented by bamboo flooring, an updated kitchen, a spacious open living/dining room, and wonderful closets. Conveniences abound at Wilshire Park--front desk service, contemporary lobby with coffee bar, extra storage, a nice gym, and a relaxing roofdeck.
The Crescent moon was the Symbol for Women. The Sun symbol was for men. The Men's outhouses fell into dilapidated conditions rather quickly. Soon everyone began using the women's outhouses since they were well kept and the only ones left standing! Eventually the Sun Symbol was lost in time.
Simple Things; Fresh Air Every Day...
The upper deck-I never think to show you this little deck off our master bedroom. I had romantic ideas about this spot, the sunset from here is spectacular. Once in a while we have coffee here in the morning but the truth is we mostly use it to air out our comforter and pillows in the fresh air, every morning, all year (weather permitting!) It’s a true simple luxury, there is nothing like getting into bed at night after they’ve been out in the fresh air all day- i highly recommend it!💙 #roomwithaview #simpleliving#capecodliving#capecodstyle#homedetails#upperdeck#homesweethome
A fresh frame of mind. ⠀
For this A-frame re-think, a beach-facing glass facade allows sunlight to fill the interior. The re-design stretches the boundaries of a traditional A-frame cabin layout to unlock new potential for an open, airy environment with unobstructed bay views. ⠀
