Bomba may be a teeny tiny pistol shrimp, but dood takes his self imposed job seriously. No matter how many times I tell him his only job is to be happy and cute, he takes it upon himself to protect me against all the squirrels, birds, cats, or other dogs that dare to come too close.
#StatenIsland is an easy target, as in people love to make fun of this place: the dump, the accent, the isolation. But I have mad love for this Burrough and the bizzare energy here.
Snug Harbor, Alice Austin, Fort Wadsworth, the Tibetan Museum are a few gems not to mention the art and music scene, green belt, and local shops and restaurants.
While I know my time on the island won't be much longer and I'll move on to the next adventure, I'll always have a soft spot for this Staten.
Thank you @gre.vo for the cute pic.
