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.

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 🙂
