Jerome the Frognome - On the Roam!

Recommended Posts

Greetings from Santa Teresa, Guanaste, Costa Rica. Maybe I'll go surfing. Maybe I'll go zip lining. Maybe I'll get a tan. Maybe I'll hang out with my home gnome Tom Brady that lives up the road with Gisele. You never can tell with a gnome!

In the neo-immortal words of the Zac Brown Band:

I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand

Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand [well, actually a screwdriver mixed in a water bottle]

Life is good today. Life is good today.

[still in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica]

Whew! Where have I been? I hibernated up north, waiting for the snow to melt and the buds to appear on the trees. Then, like the Christ, I rose on Easter...but I didn't take any pictures until the next day, when I went to the Boston Marathon.

There was no chair appropriate for my stature, and watching a marathon is very much a sitting event. So, I plopped down with this kid, who did NOT share his pretzels. The salt gets caught in my beard, anyway.

The ladies find me irresistible. As always, security is tight wherever I go, as evidenced by the gentleman in uniform in this picture.

Finally, a moment of sanity. Wild Willy's in Watertown. It ain't Whataburger, but it ain't bad.

After Boston, confident that the snow had subsided for a few months, I ventured north to Maine. I visited an old friend up there.

Those people, though. They don't know the meaning of the word vacation. They put me right to work.

There was just reward, though, at the best pizza place ever.

I finished my day relaxing, with the industrial revolution in the background.

Ah, Maine. My best to Boothbay Harbor and environs, where we spend some very happy summertimes...I would think that area would be gnome-friendly....

I've moved on from my long stay in New England, as you'll soon see, but I couldn't post photos of my next voyage without leaving a few more here from Maine. This is from Bethel, where the Sunday River ski resort is. It's in the mountains of Western Maine. Bethel is Hebrew for rain, apparently, as that's mostly what I had for weather when I was there. Still, it's a nice enough place.

My accommodations were modest but not offensive.

And they featured some of my favorite indoor activities:

I did manage to take a few photos of my own. It's a lovely place. Locals say there are piranhas in that water. I didn't check.

I have loved New England, but I get feeling it's time to move on. I feel as though I've been here way too long. I'll see you again soon from a new destination.

Ah, fond memories of lobstah and crabcakes and so much good stuff up in Maine. Even a lot of good antiquing for us (not along the coast where we stayed, but farther north and inland). Thank you, Jerome!

New England to Florida, from the sublime to the ridiculous
