Day 2 at my first hop out was a Saturday. The morning was very quiet and i had no idea when my ride would come. Just in case i was there all weekend, I needed to make a supply run.
The nearest commercial area was directly across the yard and through a humble residential pocket. It also saved me from walking through the bougie hood that flanked me from all other directions.
Made it across with no problem. On my way back, a yard worker drove past me into the yard. At that point, I was still off property, but it was clear where I was going.
As I entered the yard I saw him waiting in his truck. So I came in through some bushes and hid in this pile of concrete where I could see his truck.

I figured I would wait him out while i cracked some long-awaited beer. He didn't budge by the time I finished one, so I doubled back off property toward some unnamed pond.
As I hoped, the path around the pond brought me far enough out of the way to re-enter the yard out of view.
On my way around the pond, however, ...this happened:

I'm diggin' the palms in the background: Acoelorrhaphe wrightii - Paurotis palms - gotta be Flodda. Speaking of palms, here's an advisory note for all rubber-tramps - be careful where you park in hurricane country!

LOVE IT!!! Love my gnomes! There is a house down the street that has their front yard dressed up in a magical kind of way. They change it every year - with little trinkets and objects hidden here and there. But the focal point is the "party" going on in the front. There's a table and chairs and mis matched barbie and ken dolls. Last year had an army joe with a barbie slung across his shoulders. Miniature cans of "beer" on the table and flung off to the side. Always an entertainment to walk by it!

It appears the recent upgrade broke the registration page, so if you know anyone trying to register an account that can't, that's why. I'm working on a fix.
