Sailor Babo ponders life’s big questions

Baltimore’s been having quite a few thunderstorms, but a few weeks ago we were treated to a double rainbow.


Naturally SBoB wanted to go outside and see it in all its glory.


“Whoa, so magical!  Really makes me think about the big things in life…”


“…like whether there are cookies at the end of the rainbow.”

Sailor Babo on the Island

Sailor BabO Canada made his annual trip to the Toronto Islands for some summer rest and relaxation, and a little work at the arts retreat there.

First, he relaxed in a Muskoka chair. (It’s only an “Adirondack” on the other side of the border.)

He did some sentry duty at the writers’ wing of the arts retreat:

Gotta keep them from slacking off

He tried to write a novel of his own:

Excuse me, how do you all reach the keys?

He ran away to join a pirate crew.

SB the pirate life for me

Take it from a sailor, we’ve run aground.

(But it turned out to only be a stage.)

He avoided capture!

I am not a Pokemon! Nor am I food for one!

And celebrated his escape with a well-earned reward.

S’mores brownie for the win!

See you at the island next year, Sailor Babo!

Sailor Babo sees a Beatle!

Sailor Babo went to see Paul McCartney in concert.  Here he is jamming out to either “Back in the U.S.S.R.” or “Band on the Run.”

(There’s another Sailor Babo pic in the concert write-up on my other site.)

B is for Babo!

Sailor Babo went to the Jigsaw Records shop in Seattle.


He searched through the B’s, but Jigsaw didn’t have a copy of his debut album, Sailor Babo Sings Ba-Ba Songs.  They had a lot of other fun stuff, though.  Sailor Babo bought bunches!

Actually two votes.  He only got one sticker, though.

Sailor Babo’s Winter Break

Sailor BabO Canada has vacation photos to share with his peeps! He had a great time on Maui.

There was hiking in an arboretum…


I have no idea what this plant is, but it looked comfy.


Who painted this eucalyptus tree all these colors?

Catching some rays by the pool at his weirdly pink hotel.


Does Barbie own this place?


SPF 30 or bust!

Of course there were pineapple-shaped cookies from the Hawaiian Cookie Company!


But there was also a pirate ship! Its name was Queen’s Treasure! They said they were a whale-watching boat, but just look at their logo!


Sailor Babo climbed some rigging (as sailors do)…


Little help?

And discovered the fully stocked bar and snack station.  These are the best pirates ever!


Finally, he had to pack for home.


I can bring the beach home, can’t I?

Aloha from Hawaii!
