I think I have to go there!

 

(Please try to refrain from telling me where to go, although I know it’s tempting.)

Fair enough.

But since we’ve previously established my fondness for rocks…. it shouldn’t come as any surprise that I had a sudden itch to visit Spain when I saw this:

A town that’s literally built into a rock?

Oh, yes….

Hell yes!

I’m in.

Singular?

How about fan-fucking-tastic!

These people love rocks more than I do!

Is this wonderfully bizarre… or what?

I totally want to go.

Free air conditioning!

Things that fall into the WTH? category.

 

When checking out at the grocery store last week I saw these….

Rap Snacks.

I’m sorry, but no one needs Cardi B. flavored potato chips.

The woman wore a coffee filter to the Grammys. Enough said.

Something else no one needs?

This….

I believe I actually said WTF when I first saw it.

Now come on…. if you have that much facial hair to catch?

Skip shaving altogether and put your beard in a pony tail like all fashion forward men do.

 

I think by now you all know of my lifelong aversion to dolls.

They’re creepy…. and if you don’t want me to spend the night? Put a few of them in the spare bedroom and watch me run.

But this?

This is the stuff of nightmares.

And speaking of that?

I was cruising Atlas Obscura a while back for an interesting day trip and their recommendation gave even me pause.

Yes, you and your significant other can visit the picturesque vistas of Turkmenistan and tour the Gates of Hell.

And if you think I’m kidding?

I’m not.

Admittedly…. as tourist attractions go, it’s a little strange.

But I’d still rather go there than back to Busch Gardens.

 

 

 

Cape Cod Day 5…. P’town in the rain.

 

Done with our climbing for the day, we explored Provincetown.

In the rain…

From our car.

If I’d had foul weather gear like this fellow…

I might have been more inclined to wander.

P’town is tourist mecca in the summer.

Jam packed with people and bumper to bumper traffic.

On a rainy day in early November?

A veritable ghost town.

Oh well…

At least we didn’t have trouble finding a parking spot for lunch.

At the Squealing Pig.

Good drinks…

Great clams…
