Bjorn and Friends – Vacation – Part II – The Lighthouse

Cape May Lighthouse is very cool.  Well lets face it most lighthouses are cool…especially haunted ones.  But that’s more a topic for Halloween.  Any way,  We all took a trip to the Cape May Lighthouse and thanks to the Roomie walking up 199 steps we got to see the incredible views.


Chris wasn’t in these pictures because she was in line for a snow cone at the food truck….sheesh!


Dude it’s high up here!


A Lighthouse with a view.



The Roomie was hot and exhausted but honestly I was okay with her carrying us up the 199 steps.  We felt great when we got to the top…HA HA HA!

Bjorn and Friends on Vacation – Part I

We were on vacation this past week.  And by we I mean the Roomie, Bean, Hazel, Mick, Chris and myself.  You didn’t think I was going to miss vacation did ya?  Seriously, if anyone needs a vacation it’s the guy with the fractured nose, lol.

Bjorn and the Sunken ShipEveryone wanted their picture taken.  Here were are at the S.S. Atlantus at Sunset Beach, Cape May, New Jersey.

Down the street from Sunset Beach is the World War II Lookout Tower.  It was very cool.  The tour guides were Seniors who had served or lived during WWII and were from the area.

There were about 150 Steps which was no problem because the Roomie walked them and we got a ride with her.  Sucker!


This site has a lot of History.  During the war it was a lookout point for German U-Boats.  They even captured one-off the coast.  It hosts memorials to the soldiers who survived and those who didn’t come home at all.  It’s quite moving.

I’m glad that we had the opportunity to see this memorial to WWII.  Check it out if you get a chance.

Hello Maryland – The Fairy Files

So this weekend I went to Maryland with the Roomie and some friends.  As a Fairy of the World (or the USA) I’m glad I was able to add this getaway to the ‘places I’ve been’ files.

We gravitated to the Chesapeake this weekend.  Although a BIG boating community there were things for non-boaters to do also.

Rock Hall Maryland offered us some great seafood and some history of the local area.  It was once known for its Oysters but due to over harvesting it has change things a bit.


We stayed at this great Inn.  It was beautiful and comfy and had a giant TV in the room.  What more could you ask for?


I was manning the ship…um Inn 😉


On Sunday we headed to the Baltimore Inner Harbor.  It was a beautiful place.  They were having an Otakan Convention or something and their were these people walking around that looked like they could have been related to me.  It was AWESOME!!

We headed to the Baltimore Aquarium to see the fishes swim…neatoriffic!

Then it was off to the Hard Rock Cafe for some yummy delicious food before heading home.  I was tired but it was an awesome trip.

We love you Baltimore!

Oh Those Wildwood Days – The Fairy Files

This past weekend I went to the shore with the Roomie and some friends.   It was hot and awesome and sandy and awesome and the ocean is always awesome!

We checked out some sights and did some stuff.


The view from our suite was kickin!


Can you see my friends on the beach over there?  Hey…put on some more sunscreen people!!!


We went to see the Sunken Ship from the 1940’s.  It’s pretty cool.

We all wanted to stay forever but unfortunately the Roomie’s got some crazy job thing so we had to go home but she assures me we are going back very soon…I can’t wait!

Bjorn’s Semi-Retirement

I know some are wondering what has happened to our World Traveler Bjorn Maelstrom.  He’s still around.  He’s out having lunch..

We went the local park for some sandwiches and peace and quiet…it was really nice.

Bjorn has been taking some time off since he broke his arms, lost his tail and fractured his nose.

It’s not easy being a world traveler.  The accommodations are a little less than comfy.

There’s a lot of wear-and-tear on this old Troll.  So I’m going to take over most of the traveling for the time being.  Don’t be surprised if you see some of old faces and some new faces guest blogging for your favorite Troll.  In the mean time Bjorn is going surfing and sun bathing for the summer.

Nothing can keep this Troll down 🙂

Got Pride?

So this weekend was Pride in Philadelphia.  We didn’t go into the city this year but it doesn’t mean we didn’t have our pride on.  I broke out my Pride sash and wore it all day.


It was a good weekend.  I got to read some and eat some and yes we did hit the city on Saturday.  We had some steaks at Geno’s.
It was a good tasty time.  I think next year I will make a pride sign 😉
