Ostrich Face Down Chaise Lounge
Can''t wait to take it to the beach
from Hilton Head Island, SC
It is not quite beach weather here yet but I have taken the Ostrich for a "test drive" out on my sunny, south facing porch several times and think it is great. I find it to be plenty sturdy and very comfortable while lying sunny side up or down. The face port is the main reason I purchased the chair as I have neck arthritis. This chair is well designed to support the head and neck in both positions. I am also practicing folding and unfolding the chair before I take it on its maiden beach voyage. It does take a bit of muscle to get it folded and mainly I am trying to be aware and take extra care to keep the hinges off the ground/sand when I am folding. I just have a sneaky suspicion that if beach sand gets into the hinges of this chair, that it will not be a good thing regarding flexibility and longevity of the chaise lounge. My plan is to be extra careful with it when at the beach, especially while opening and closing the sections and legs. Having a pre-calculated open and closure strategy, I am sure it will be ok. Overall, am so glad I ordered, look forward to enjoying it, and yes, mom, I promise to wear sunscreen.
