Polar caves Part 5. The finale…

 

Done with the caves, we thought we were done with the park but there was still a little left to explore.

A nature path through the woods.

 

638

 

Leading past a sugar shack…

 

643

 

And an old tree.

Do I post fascinating stuff or what?

 

 

Stop that!

 

642

 

There was a rock set up for climbing….

 

635

 

As well as one with some munchies on top.

 

637

 

And you know what?

Still better than kale.

We kept hiking.

 

650

 

Up some rocks…

 

652

 

And some stairs…

 

651

 

And oh boy! The husband’s face says it all…

More stairs.

 

654

 

To be honest there wasn’t much more to see. But we found a gazebo on our way back down… with rather questionable graffiti.

 

653

 

Okay.

I’m not sure that needed be to advertised…. but whatever floats your boat.

 

655

 

One more smooth path down…

 

656

 

And we neared the exit.

 

657

 

Where I had to stop and feed those precious European fallow deer again.

Such little cuties.

Polar Caves… the end!

Half a day experiencing it , 5 days blogging about it.

Say what you want about me… (and I’m sure you will)

You can’t say I’m not thorough.

 

I bet you didn’t know….

But I did, because….

Did you know….

When CBS broadcast the first ever color television show they were the only ones who actually owned a color television?

Did you know…

The Egyptian hieroglyph for one hundred thousand is a tadpole?

Kind of makes you wonder what they were counting…

 

 

Did you know…

A snallygaster is a mythical dragon like beast that supposedly haunts rural Maryland?

And all this time I thought it was just David Hasslehoff.

Did you know…

Lachanophobia is the fear of vegetables?

Like kale.

That shit is everywhere.

Did you know…

Aztec emperor Montezuma had a nephew named Cuitlahac?

Roughly translated Cuitlahac means “plenty of excrement”.

Clearly Monty’s sister had a sense of humor.

 

 

Did you know…

In Japan, robots pay union dues.

Which answers the age old age question…

Who killed Jimmy Hoffa?

 

I can’t say I’m surprised.

 

Burger King?

Not a fan.

So I wasn’t surprised to hear that their new meatless burger…

Tasted the same as their original beef burger.

Hell, as far as I’m concerned the original doesn’t taste like meat either.

But here’s the thing…

If you’re eating a burger?

Please, for the love of all that’s holy….

Eat a burger!

No….

A burger means beef, bison… or if you have to be difficult, turkey.

Not heme.

A soybean root cheeseburger?

Christ….

You might as well be eating kale.

So what’s up with Kale… and why does everyone want me to eat it?

 

(Disclaimer – I am not a kale fan, and the popular leafy green will be heavily disparaged in this post.)

I’m a good girl. I eat my veggies, green and otherwise.

Yes, Popeye I even eat my spinach.

Hell, I live in Maine… I have been served dandelion green and Nasturtium bloom salad and smiled. (Although I do draw the line at Fiddleheads, those slimy aborted fern fronds people in New England go beserk for every spring. If I’m going to ingest something I pick alongside the road it had better be blackberries. Preferably in brandy form. But I digress.)

Throw a little kale in my salad, fine. I won’t revolt. (Hell, if you smother it in enough blue cheese dressing, I will eat a brick)

But please…. stop trying to incorporate it into everything else.

My girlfriend served a big bowl of kale chips with French Onion Dip at a party.  (Not cool…. bring back my Ruffled Lays.)

Another friend invited us over for an Italian dinner. Sweet! Until I saw the lasagna as well as the ravioli was stuffed with kale.  (That’s just wrong.)

I do not want your kale frittata.

Your kale burgers, your kale pie….

And most of all your kale pizza!

That’s just sacrilege.

The kale craze has gone too far.

Okay, it’s nutritious… but enough’s enough.

From now on I’ll be flying my new banner high and proud.
