The Fairies Hit The Beach

I love the beach but do not get to visit it often.

It’s fabulous here under the umbrella.

Being a woodland creature for the most part I’ve found the beach life to be very nice indeed.  The Ocean was perfect and I had plenty of shade under this umbrella!

Being an Irish Fairy Phinn didn’t take off his coat.  He didn’t want to get sunburned.

This was another successful vacation at the Jersey shore for the lot of us.  Good times, food, family and fun!

The World Famous Lucy the Elephant

This year the roomie, the Fairies and Bean went to see Lucy the Elephant in Margate, New Jersey.  I have to say…that’s one GIANT Elephant.

She has survived for over 100 years and is an amazing sight to behold.

Inside she is a museum but she has housed many other things in her great history from a residence to a bar.

Thankfully the locals kept Lucy alive after she fell into disrepair.  She got a total rehab and is now an historical landmark in New Jersey!

The view from the top of Lucy was spectacular.  She’s not your standard museum.  If you are in Margate, New Jersey go and give her a hug.  Tell them The Fairies sent ya!

Naked at the Beach

Tanta and I went to the beach this weekend and she decided she wanted to go for a dip in the ocean.

Apparently in her home land nudity is okay.

I tried to tell her this was a family place and nudity was frowned upon but she didn’t seem to care.

She is one wild Dane!

I love her because so many things make her smile.  It’s almost contagious.

IMG_0471 (300x400)

Look I’m smiling too.  You just can’t tell this is my smiley face.  Check out Tanta’s hand trying to swipe my shell.

All was cool though…she found her own…really big shell!

Summer of 2013 – Trains!!!!

We went to Strasburg to see the trains.  I wasn’t sure about this trip at first but I learned that I do have such a connection with trains I never before realized.  Maybe it’s the age thing or the fact I took my first long distance trip on a train.

They even had some funerary there which made me feel completely at home.

Shelly loves trains, as we all know, but I don’t think he was quite ready for Thomas!

Thomas was looking just a little scary when he pulled up to the station.

The train yards were his favorite.  We had a blast!  The Choo Choo Barn had full replica of the town in miniature model trains.  We had to pull Shelly away from this venue because he would have lived there forever 🙂  Good times had by all…especially Shelly!
