Polly Personification

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Well my friends, near and far—it’s been quite some time since our last writing.  Pollyroger needed to take a breather from her world-wind year of travels to be honest.  She’s now rested and ready to go out meet some new folks once again.  Since that is what Pollyroger thrives on is friendships… =)

Her “mom” got the opportunity to dress as a pirate for her company’s annual awards banquet a couple of weeks ago.  The event was held at the Halekulani Hotel (the only remaining 5 star property on Oahu) from 10:30 am to 2:30 pm.  The invitation read “Attire- Pirate Bling”…oh if they only knew!!  So in broad daylight we invitees go strolling in our pirate bling costumes—what a hoot!  Talk about some looks from the hotel’s guests….

The event was first class and FUN!!   Did we ever pick the right company to go to work for or what?!

But the fun didn’t end there, when “Polly” is getting out of her car in the parking garage where she lives, along comes a man and his little 3 or 4 year old daughter, just as Polly is getting out of the car.  “Arrghh, little girl” she says, “Would you like some goodies from me booty bag?!”  The little girl stares at her with eyes wide open in fear, Polly pulls a chocolate gold coin from her booty bag and hands it to the little girl.  The father asks, “Is that chocolate?”  “Arrgghh, yes it be!” Polly replies.  The little girl lights up with a grin from ear to ear as we step into the elevator together…she believes she’s met a real live pirate woman!! =)

Got FUN?!  You betcha….

Pirate Pillage

Polly goes “Coastal” in Croatia… =)

Saturday, August 14th, 2010
Pollyroger now flies in Croatia!  She’s been seen sailing the Adriatic waters off the coast of the loveliest island in Croatia, called Brac, with the equally lovely town of Bol.  This island is renown for the beach of Zlatni Rat, which is seen in many a travel poster as the best beach in all of Croatia.  That may be argued by fellow Croatians—but it is indeed a slice of Croatian paradise.

Zlatni Rat Morning

 

Pollyroger had the pleasure of going on a day excursion or two on the motor vessel, “Frane”, who’s home port, is Bol.  She made the acquaintance of Captain Mate (pronounced maw-te like the tea in South America) & his first mate.  Here she is with some Croatian smiles… =)

Captain Mate & Mate... =)

The “M.B. Frane” plies the waters of the Adriatic every day, leaving Bol for a variety of destinations depending on the day of your choosing.  Her various routes are shown here from a brochure of the daily excursions.  Unfortunately no website was to be found in the literature but you can’t miss the “M.B. Frane” as you arrive into Bol.   

So Polly Pals PLAY on with Pollyroger, as she sets sail each day with all the FUN folks, going out for the day from Bol on the island of Brac.  Now the Adriatic is another sea that Pollyroger has set sail upon!! 

 

Got FUN? You betcha… =)

Polly Pondering…

Saturday, July 31st, 2010

Ahoy all you Polly Pals!  Polly is currently traveling about Eastern Europe…  Rumor has it she’s been spotted down on The Danube and also in Croatia.  Her “mom” is trying to shake a little cold today, so she’s using the R&R to ponder some possibilities.

Polly wants to make her site more FUN, while also attracting more like-minded individuals such as yourselves.  So we thought what better way than to ask her FRIENDS & PALS, such important information.  Please POST your comments to POLLYROGER, so she can make the rest of the year’s journey & ADVENTURES, more interactive and most of all FUN for everyone!! =)

Play on Polly Pals!  Till the next POST…..aloha oe’

Polly Sails on into 2010!

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010
Polly is definitely beginning to make her way around the planet!  Polly is now proudly flying on the vessel that traverses the Andean lakes each day from Chile to Argentina (weather permitting).   She was introduced to the captain of the vessel, Captain Salim and crew.  They were pleased to know she sails in the Argentine Lake District as well on Lago Argentino next to the Perito Moreno Glacier.  The captain assured us Pollyroger will be proudly sailing on Lagos Todos Los Santos in Chile as well!

She was recently asked what her goal was regarding her planetary pursuits and it gave her some pause…  After some reflecting on the question and it’s ultimate meaning to her and her pursuit of friends, FUN, and time spent on the water.   She decided sailing on vessels that encompass the seven seas (or lakes as in this post) would be a good one, but also the traveler in her knows it would take time to see all the amazing beauty in the world in that manner.   So again, it’s the pals she makes along the way who will carry her forward to her planetary destinations. 

So in honor of those wonderful people she met last year here is her first  feature presentation.
