ABC WEDNESDAY - S IS FOR SUNRISE ,SUNSET AND SARKOZY
Well it was no stretch of the imagination to envisage this island dweller would have to show a sunset or a sunrise. One of each then. Wanted something else to go with them, not quite so obvious. That's why the cartoon is posted too.
Image one is the sunset shot. It' s taken from the spot that you can see in Tuesday's post, the real working side of Ramsey Harbour. This is the part of the docks where all the ships and boats were built such as the Euterpe, or as it's known to us Ramsey folk "The Star of India."
Image two is a caricature entitled "Entente Incredible". The two figures depicted as Laurel and Hardy are (on the right) the UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brown and (on the left) the President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy. That's the odd "S" for today. It's a cartoon by my partner. I dedicate it to Louis, the owner of the best bar in the world, (and the regulars)of the "Up & Down" in Montpellier, France. There is a beer mat behind the bar with a Sarkozy cartoon. My partner drew that too.
Image three is the sunrise shot. Taken from the walkway into town ,looking towards the working side of the harbour and through the bridge. I never tire of photographing the bridge as you've probably noticed!
Well not long now 'til the TT and to the arrival of a very important visitor to the Island, your ABC host Mrs Nesbitt. That makes you a visiting celebrity by the way, Mrs N.
