Sandra, Siren of the Swimsuit and Ciggies


Some slides just sing out to me, and this is one of them.

Often, it's just a matter of a close inspection of the details - for example the slightly loose swimsuit (roll on the arrival of lycra), the slightly goofy expression, the ever-present cigarette, the folded wheelchair in the background, the possible caravan / mobile home location, etc.

In fact, with a bit of a clean-up, this might be a candidate for the 2018 Slide Guy calendar.

Belle at the Hull Marina


I'm just back from a few days away.  Having visited the UK City of Culture 2017, I'm now ready to share my pictures of the tourist mecca that is Kingston-upon-Hull Marina.

And the opinion is.... Meh.

It was OK.   Clearly the subject of much regeneration money, it's still rather shabby in places.

So, today's slide shares one important feature with Hull - Water.  However, while Hull has brown water, here Belle poses beside blue water.

Bonus - Continuing the water theme ... Yikes !
