Adirondack Beach Chair

Colton's Point - St Mary's County, Maryland 

Spotted this chair along the Potomac River waterfront on Colton's Point a couple of weeks ago and was struck by this nautical interpretation of the traditional chair that came from the Adirondack Mountains. The Adirondack Chair was designed by Thomas Lee in 1903 while he was vacationing in the Adirondacks. There are many variations on the basic design, but I have never seen another with sailboats on the seat back.

It's October, and beach-going season is over for another year (unless you are living in the southern hemisphere). Hope you have a great weekend and can enjoy a few more warm days before cold weather arrives.

And as always, thanks for reading Photography In Place.

    1. Or perhaps an Admiral's chair -- commanding a five ship fleet.
