Memories of a glass bottomed boat

Poetry

Rhodes, 18th October 2018

Watched with intent

As Mediterranean blue

Mixed with Aegean aqua

Travelling over waves

As crabs met tentacles

Admiring the land lubbers

Shellfish communicate with conch

The shows about to start

As hermit crabs scuttle towards the bigger fish

In an instant they appear

Waving a fin or a tentacle

In the greenest of blues

Catch of the day

Passes along the hull

To say hello and goodbye

Blackpool, 11th April 2017

Tuesday saw me take a little trip up the motorway to Blackpool with my sister Anne Marie and my two nephews James and George

Blackpool Tower

It wasn’t really seaside weather so, we visited the Tower circus and the Sea life centre instead….

The sea life centre was our first place we visited – and we all enjoyed the sharks, and the dolphins and Rays (as well as the fish)

The Circus Ring – Before the Show

There were lots of acrobats, and juggling and trapeze acts at this show, and plenty of clowning around…and lots of laughter.

We finished off the day with a picnic lunch by the tower.

A precious stone – that’s what you are

Quite a beauty, like the colour of the sea

Until they found you in the rocks

A treasure hunter would travel many miles in search of the

Mermaids treasure – you couldn’t be seen…

A trick of the light ? perhaps .  But many a

Royal sent out their miners sailors and privateers

In search of your beauty

Navigating unchartered waters

Expecting to find you
