I’m on vacation, but I can’t quite stay away from the blog, so I’ll regale you with vacation pictures and tales from the road.
We landed in Newark last Friday. I researched which side of the plane to sit on so we’d have good views. When we landed, we saw the New York City skyline. I’ve never been to NYC, so this excited me greatly:
We stayed in Connecticut and our evening was equally exciting, but not in a good way. The hotel had good ratings, but wasn’t in the greatest part of town. Every hooligan in a 30 mile radius was staying in the room next to ours. They were up until at least 3am drinking and shouting. I couldn’t let this inconsiderate behavior go unrewarded.
I’m an early riser, even when I don’t go to sleep until 3am. I woke up at 6am and gave the jerks next door a wake up call. I let the phone ring long enough to wake them and then hung up. Shouting ensued from the other side of the wall, but this time it was extreme anger instead of drunken raving. I repeated the call at 6:15 and then at 6:30. They were not happy. They were also not smart enough to unplug the phone.
Before we left at 8:30am, I pulled the car up next to their room and laid on the horn for at least 5 seconds. I hope you enjoyed your wake up call jerks.
I told my girls that we were headed to a tree house and they were overcome with joy. The joy quickly faded when they realized what tree house we were actually visiting:
I had a Julius (American IPA) and a Haze (Imperial IPA). These were high octane beers and it wasn’t long before the dinosaurs and I were feeling really good.
One of my favorite things to do when I visit a new place is walk around aimlessly. My favorite time is early in the morning when I have the place to myself. Ogunquit is a perfect place to wander. The beachside town is beautiful and has a wonderful path that hugs the ocean.
Finally, we headed north to visit my friend who blogs at FrugalFringe. There, we discovered wondrous things including beautiful views, McLobster and bread in a can:
On Friday, we head to the Frugal Woods of Vermont where we’ll visit a certain greyhound and drink from the cauldron of the Alchemist.
