COVID-19 Notwithstanding, I Got About In 2020 — As Attested By ‘Google Maps’.

by Anura Guruge


It is SCARY that Google keeps track of EVERYWHERE I go!

Well, this is there summary of my travels in 2020 — COVID-19 or NO COVID-19.

In the end I travelled as much as I normally would have — THOUGH I did not take any type of public transport, get ANY takeout or go to a restaurant as of March 2020. So, all of these trips were road trips — many of them documented here.

The COVID restrictions did NOT start applying to us till mid-March. By then we had already done two trips — one to Newport, Rhode Island & the other to Rockland, Maine.

Then right through the Summer it was Day Trips — though one involved a 9-hour drive.

Then as of late August we made the trip South — all the way to North Carolina.

Yes, you are free to steal these pictures.



Bought this Nepali waistcoat, over a month ago, when we were in New Port, Rhode Island. There was a real cool Nepali shop on Thames St.

This was the first time I got to wear. I like it — and that is all that matters. As some of you know, I really do NOT care what others think of I. SMILE.

I wanted to share it with you. Perfect for today. I like waistcoats. I think this one will get a fair amount of use over the next few weeks. SMILE.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2020.


This was from exactly a week ago.

Sunset (though it was cloudy day) at ‘Fort Adams’, New Port, Rhode Island.

Yes, a double rainbow — but we are not strangers to double, or even quadruple rainbows. Rainbows follow us around. SMILE.

Enjoy.

The 1st “America’s Cup” Race Was Won This Day 166-Years Ago; August 22, 1851.

Yacht “AMERICA” winning the 1851 regatta by American painter Fitz Henry Lane (1804–1865).

I like to follow, whenever I can, the “America’s Cup” — and did watch all the races in the dramatic 2013 cup when Oracle staged its amazing come-from-behind victory. I guess I missed the 2017 races in June! I will have to try and find them on YouTube. Yes, it is on YouTube:



I have been lucky enough to visit the “New York Yacht Club’s” marina/clubhouse in Newport, Rhode Island. That is like a museum for the America’s Cup.
