A sun drenched beach or a snow topped log cabin?
What appeals to you the most a beautiful sandy beach with palm trees and a cocktail bar or a snow covered landscape with a log cabin, roaring fire and hot chocolate with marshmallows? What do you think your choice says about you as a person?
It says how much leisure time I have. If I have a lot of work to do, being locked in that cabin can help me catch up on things. If I am on the beach, I have some free time on my schedule!
I love the beach choice !!
I think it says I enjoy not having to worry about warth and the trails and labour of the great outdoors whilst still cherishing being in nature, forget the cocktail bars etc but empty warm beaches and seas does it for me everytime, I would not say no to a log cabin trip aslo !!! lol
But I would sooner be in a log cabin with people I loved than be in paridise island alone !!
I would have to say sun drenched beach although I do like both. I am a warm weather person typically but I doenjoy a good cold day as well
Great question. I like both actually and my choice says that I am an indecisive person.
Both conjure up really nice images, with the snow sparkling and brilliant white and the ocean waves creeping in with tide. But when it comes to reality, give me the beach. I don't like bundling up and I don't like being cold, as I am right now. And that fire is a lot of work.
So get me to the beach where the ocean and gulls lull me and I'm squinting because the sun is reflecting off water, not snow. I do realize one of them says I would more likely be madly writing and working just to stay warm. The other says I would prefer to be busy reading and I don't mean research material. Ultimately, wherever I end up, the writing has to get done.
Boy, it's a hard choice. I experienced both beaches and mountain cabins in childhood, and deep snow later. Now, I live less than 2 miles from the beach, and I love it. But I miss mountains!
I think it says more about me as an animal, than as a person. I love the feeling of swimming in the ocean. I love being part of the vastness. And I love feeling the solidity of deep rock beneath my feet, and the total presence of being in a body that faces the chill and stays strong.
I think that we are all very connected to life, and are living animals in this planet. And I think if we got outside and faced it more, we would be a lot healthier and much more connected to nature. We would need less heating, cooling, and stuff for distraction. And, loving the natural world, we'd take care of it. (See my hubs on Go Green for more about the mind connecting to nature and our care for our planet, if you like.)
Thanks for asking - great question - and a reminder to spend even more time outdoors!
Right now I'd have to choose that sun drenched sandy beach, with a Martini - shaken, not stirred! Why? Because where I am right now, I've frankly had enough snow up to my ying yangs and am beginning to get cabin fever. So in other words...I deserve a real break today!
I live in England
Damp for 12 months of the year
Give me the beach any day
Well I am not a beach person but I do prefer the sun to snow. So I would have to say I would go with the sun drenched, sandy beach. It says to me that I don't like the cold weather!!!
depends on who I am with hahahah but if I am alone I prefer beautiful sandy beach with palm trees and a cocktail bar
Living in Houston, we are so close to the Texas Gulf Coast, that we have the sun drenched beaches within reach. So I make use of that as much as I can, minus the cocktail bar. Not much of a drinker. Howeve, I have had visions of the lone log cabin in the woods with the hot chocolate and roaring fire. It sounds so-o-o appealing. It's so hot down here most of the year, it would be nice to have a cold place to go once in a while.
A log cabin with the fire and hot chocolate, hands down! I guess it says I'm not afraid of the cold? I picture the log cabin nestled in the mountains and my cross-country skis are leaning against the outside of it, and a stack of books inside.
Beach all the way. I'll look at pictures of snow. I hate cold, that is all I think it says about me.
Hmm. Both are warm inside, Question is does the snow have bears? And do other foriegn tourists leave their towels out at night to claim all the seats!
A sandy beach any day. I love living in Florida and I love any tropical islands. It's something about the sun that makes me happy.
If the snow-topped log cabin comes with surrounding 14,000 foot peaks - then the cabin it is.
A sun drenched beach in Florida for me. Orlando( Cocoa Beach) or Daytona for me.
In my case, it all depends on my frame of mind. I enjoy both, and believe that there is a time and a place to experience each scenario. I live in Minnesota because I was born here. I love the woods, and the thought of a snow covered cabin with a cozy fire and hot chocolate is so inviting...BUT... it's March and the winter has worn out it's welcome... I'd do almost anything to be walking on the shores of the Atlantic with the sun on my shoulders...margarita in hand!
Beach every time. I live in Scotland where summer temperatures struggle to get above 18 degrees. I have too much cold in my life and yearn warm weather.
Both, equally. I think what it says about me is that I don't wish to limit my options. Have a great day.
A sandy beach with palm trees. I grew up in Colorado, and have lived in Missouri for the past ten years. I want sunshine!
If I can't be barefoot, I'm miserable so I will take the beach, please!
A snow topped log cabin for me anytime. Just the peace and tranquility of getting away from it all with a good book sounds incredible.
When I was younger, I would have chosen the log cabin, etc. But now, the cold bothers me and so I prefer the warmer climate. Of course I get more of the former than the last since I live in Maine!
I am definately a log cabin type of girl. I love the thought of a log cabin with a cozy fire. I guess I'm somewhat laid back and reserved. I enjoy the thought of peaceful, contemplative time.
Snow topped log cabin, any day. Where I live,we never seen snow. The idea of spending time in that environment is very appealing.
The beach definitely. I love the serenity of the water and the warm air. I don't like feeling "closed in" so winter weather doesn't appeal to me. I think my love of summer and the ocean/beach indicates I am a free spirit with a sense of adventure, but a need for serenity in my life.
I'm a Californian, so I can go to the beach any time. The most memorable trips are the ones spent snowed in at a cabin in the woods. Not only does it look beautiful - the snow and the fire burning in the fireplace, it smells so clean and fresh.
Beach for sure. I get enough cold and snow around here. I also love the warmth, humidity and the ocean.
The choice is quite easy - when it is winter and cold and misery, then I go to where the sun always shines with beautiful sandy beach with palm trees and a cocktail in hand; when it is summer and heatwave after heatwave strikes, then I go to where it is cold with a snow covered landscape with a log cabin, roaring fire and hot chocolate with marshmallows!
beautiful sandy beach with palm tree but no cocktail bar:)
Beach all the way. I prefer the warmer climes to the colder ones and although the log cabin can be picturesque, all that digging out and piling on loads of layers is not so appealing. Perhaps this speaks to my rather idle nature, where I prefer to relax and enjoy solo with a good book or social beach days.
Both are highly appealing to me. There is a season for both. Although I would indeed prefer the cocktail over hot chocolate. Thus, I must conclude that perhaps I am an indecisive alcohol dependent...

How many of you still have snow on the ground, and if so, are you getting cabin fever yet?So I'll go first. Still have around 6 inches of snow. It melts, freezing rains, and then tries to snow. The weather is just sort of cycling like that. Even though there are places where you can see patches of...

The Bible says that all one has to do is ask for forgiveness. Now being that, do you think that Satan might have already asked God for forgiveness? Now before you rattle off scripture.....I don't believe...but I could be wrong....that the Bible has nothing to say on that.
