(*Well, not really. That happened somewhere in the South Pacific, when somebody got creative and tied a vine and a woven mat between two palm trees, and the rest is history).
But Pawleys Island has become the poster child for hammocks. And not just because some of the world's best-designed hammocks come from here, and they weave a thousand feet of rope into each one. It's also because of a hammock mentality.
Pawleys Island perfectly personifies the hammock mindset. It's that wonderful ability to know the importance of kick-back time. Of knowing when to call it a day, when to relax, when to put up your feet and just swing and sway in the breeze for a while. Throwing deadlines and cares to the wind, and breathing in the ocean air. Breathing it deep down into your lungs. Reading a really good book. Sipping sweet tea on a hot day. Enjoying the simple things in what has become an increasingly complex world.
Pawleys has been called "arrogantly shabby," a label that both fits it perfectly, and completely misses the point (as most labels usually do). It's more that Pawleys has its priorities in order.
That said, when you are ready for some kick-back time, it's smart to team up with somebody who sweats the small stuff, who makes sure your hammock is hanging in a sturdy (and lovely) place.
