Took these 18-days ago, but was too busy to get around to posting them. But, I did not want to lose them or spoil our ‘taking selfies my way’ saga.

Those of you familiar with my ‘taking selfies my way’ know that I cannot resist the large mirrors at the ‘Cinemagic’, Portsmouth, NH. This is the third set of selfies from there this month — the last on February 14 when we went to see ‘Paddington 2‘. This time it was to see ‘Sherlock Gnomes‘.

Then for dinner at the “Portsmouth Brewery“. Their men’s restroom is tastefully done up in burnished brass to look like the inside of a brewing vat. Neato. Had to take a picture.

Second time taking selfies with the Google Pixel 2 phone I got for Christmas 2017.

The ‘Fort Stark‘, historic site, just south of Portsmouth, N.H., is one of our closest points to the ocean. As such we tend to visit Ft. Stark fairly often, at least once a year — and looking back at my pictures I realize that we tend to make the first visit in early Spring. So, we lived up to form on Sunday, Easter. We went down to Portsmouth, for Easter, to see ‘Sherlock Gnomes‘ and then have dinner. But, we wanted to visit the ocean before. So, we went to Ft. Stark. It was a bit grey and a tad windy. There were only about 4 other people in total around.

But, it was, as usual, still fun. We walked around. Clamored among the rocks. There was a large ship coming in … and a tug from Portsmouth was going out to meet it. There was a helicopter overhead. We were there for about 45-minutes.

Enjoy.

“Sherlock Gnomes” Movie (2018) — Fiendishly Clever, Cute & Comic.

Quite the yarn. Very entertaining. Very clever. Lot of fun. You will LAUGH and you will come out refreshed.

Went to see it, on Easter, in Portsmouth (NH) at Cinemagic, after going to the ‘ocean’ and before going for dinner. Third movie we have seen this year, all at the Cinemagic, and there is an obvious theme in that the other two were: “Paddington 2” & “Peter Rabbit“. Yes, we like cartoons, featuring make-believe entities set in Britain. In a way there are similarities between all three of these movies, “Paddington” and it both set in London — but it is all good.

Definitely helps IF you know your Arthur Conan Doyle in that there are references to things such as the Arthur Conan Doyle.

Curious, THOUGHT-provoking portrayal of Sherlock — though we also get to meet his ex-finance. Curious that Elton John was the Producer! Was that a coincidence.

We liked it. It might NOT be everybody’s cup of British tea. Helps if you are an Anglophile or as in my case, out-and-out British to the core.
