Question ID: 262014
I live about seven blocks from the ocean and am planning on using it
as my "second office".  I am trying to find a lightweight chair that I
can carry with me when I walk down to the beach.  Ideally, the chair
is easy to carry.  It is also is comfortable so that I could sit in it
and work on a laptop or read for at least a couple of hours at a time.
 Finally, it should be fairly inexpensive.  Say, less than $50.  A
chair that is either available online or from a store in the Los
Angeles area would be fine.  Thanks!

I tell you, that 3-in-1 Kelsyus with the canopy option might be just
the ticket.  In total, it slightly exceeds your preferred budget but
having a chair, canopy and cooler at the beach office would be
wonderful options plus that backpack in which to transport office
supplies and other materials.

Truly awesome answer and quick!  I order the 3-in-1 chair with the
canopy as per your recommendation.  The canopy will work great for
shielding the sun so I can work on my laptop.  Anyway, thanks!!!

Thank you for your rating, comments and added generosity!  That 3-in-1

delighted you are pleased with my research and I wish you many
relaxing office moments by the shore.  :)
