New Hope

Cursed little town for me…  Every time I go here something bad happens.  This time, on the way back, ran into a pothole which damaged my baby’s right-front-strut and cost me about 6-7 hours at two mechanic shops and, finally, about $600.  Well, it’s just an accident, right?  But what about the last time I was here and lost my ring?  And the time before when I met a girl who ended up wasting a shit-ton of my time?  Oh, and the time before when we got lost?  And the time I got a parking ticket?  Ah, regardless, I like coming here for some reason.  New Hope, PA.  Lovely little town with a breathtaking rideup/down.  If you have never been here, I highly recommend this little jewel, located just a few (~30) miles outside of the city of Philadelphia.  Twisty roads and all, you’ll arrive here in no time and be transported to a slightly different reality, filled with last rich people, shopping for useless shit and drinking overpriced beers.  BUT, the place is on the water which is kind of nice.

Just a splice-up of some videos I did there.  Gives you a sense of what the place is really like, I suppose.

An amazing find here.  This is an anti-Russian movement amongst Ukrainians…  If you get it you get it.  If you don’t get it… you don’t get it.

I need this, badly… :-)

Ah, here we are, right after we cross the bridge.

newhope-february-walk-2015-4

Lovely, right?  Just a small town lost in the exact precise middle of absolutely nowhere.

newhope-february-walk-2015-5

With lovely red doors.

newhope-february-walk-2015-6

With the tiny cottages.

newhope-february-walk-2015-7

And absolutely adorable smoking “lounges” people setup for themselves.

newhope-february-walk-2015-8

Right by the river.

newhope-february-walk-2015-9

That same river that sometimes floods their summer hangouts.

newhope-february-walk-2015-10

With the snow covering the… possessions :-)

newhope-february-walk-2015-11

Just amazingly adorable views here, right?  If I ever find a girl I think I’ll take her here.  Rent that gold house in the middle :-)

newhope-february-walk-2015-12

Or just chill on these here chairs.  A-fucking-mazing!

newhope-february-walk-2015-13

I could live here.  Move here for a summer, write a book.  You think I could write a book?  I think I could write a book.

newhope-february-walk-2015-14

Or sit and stare at the glass sun emanating the metal rays :-)

newhope-february-walk-2015-15

Or clean up this green boat and ride it places.

newhope-february-walk-2015-16

Or just sit on my balcony and stare at this flower-wielding contraption, methinks.

newhope-february-walk-2015-17

Or laugh at the adorable bitchy signs.

newhope-february-walk-2015-18

Chill with my bros.  Apparently this be the hangout spot for the cool of the bunch.

newhope-february-walk-2015-19

Huh?  Dangit, I should have bought this shirt!

newhope-february-walk-2015-20

Or moved into this house.  I mean, this is one mad-ass-crazy-fucking-house.  I wanna I wanna!

newhope-february-walk-2015-21

Thin ice there, bro.  You’re walking on some thin ice.  LITERALLY.

newhope-february-walk-2015-22

Sigh.

newhope-february-walk-2015-23

Gotta love it.

newhope-february-walk-2015-24

This be my gun shed.  Yeah, boy.

newhope-february-walk-2015-25

See what I mean?

newhope-february-walk-2015-26

I’d definitely get the one remaining wedding cake.

newhope-february-walk-2015-27

And take my lady to the waterfalls.

newhope-february-walk-2015-28

To look over the river and contemplate the future or the seven billion people inhabiting this here planet.

newhope-february-walk-2015-29

And look again at the golden house and sigh one more time.

newhope-february-walk-2015-30

Turn my head and look at the ice sculpture.  Yeah, this one.  Whatever the fuck it is, it’s more of an ice sculpture than I had ever built.  … Hmm… Where was I going with this?

newhope-february-walk-2015-31

Ah, yeah, the ducks.  The ducks are cool, too.

newhope-february-walk-2015-32

I’m freezing my balls off, figuratively, … they’re… well, you get the picture.

newhope-february-walk-2015-33

Still, lovely, don’t you think?

newhope-february-walk-2015-34

newhope-february-walk-2015-35

Didn’t I tell you about all the useless shit you can buy?

newhope-february-walk-2015-36

I just can’t stop looking over there…

newhope-february-walk-2015-37

Or at the ice.  It’s nice here.

newhope-february-walk-2015-38

Nice here at the border.  I think I’m smuggling my Pennsylvania-bought cigarettes over to Jersey and back…  Fuck, I hope NSA doesn’t read my silly blog.  Dear NSA, please forgive my for smuggling a half-a-pack of smokes over the border.  I’ll behave next time! [no I won’t!]

newhope-february-walk-2015-39

Waaaaait… Swans?  Cool!

newhope-february-walk-2015-40

And the evening-house.  Good to grab an ale before I head back home.  Always nice here.  Except on the way home I fuckup my car and spend the next 2 weeks in/out of mechanics…  Ah, c’est la vie, my friend, c’est la vie.  Life, she’s a bitch sometimes.  Life, she is as she is :-).
