Yacht to See This!

Belatedly Beautiful Spring Blossom

Belatedly Beautiful Spring Blossom

AnElephantCant wait longer for springtime
The weather in Scotland is still pretty bleak
So far this year
All the places near here
Have had about one day of sunshine each week

The trees at last have some blossom
This must be 6 or more weeks later than usual
AnElephant is cold
And feeling quite old
The need for sunshine is now getting crucial

This morning he walks by the river
He does not go very far though
He does have great thoughts
As he looks at the yachts
They remind him so much of Monte Carlo

Luxury Yachts in Monte Carlo or Damperton-Sur-Leven?

Luxury Yachts in Monte Carlo or Damperton-Sur-Leven?

The river is not quite a mill pond
Thankfully the wind is blowing up from the south
When it comes from the north
It still brings winter’s wrath
And leaves stalactites on the roof of his mouth

AnElephant does not like to be grumpy
Though he sometimes enjoys a good moan
When all’s said and done
He misses the sun
It won’t be too long before he is gone

He has really enjoyed his short stay here
He knows some locals who do not believe him
Because he likes to roam
Everywhere is his home
Even the much maligned Damperton-Sur-Leven

    Winter this year stayed way too long. This is our first real whole week of spring. And – today it ended with rain. That’s ok though. The temps were still spring-like & no winter winds.
    Hope you get a steady streak of sunshine soon.

    OH how I wish for the sunshine
    To come not just one day at a time.


  7. You are off again? Where to this time? 🙂

    Any scene witn yachts in it is a good one!

    A day in a week is not really bleak –
    Try an hour in one, and you really would freak!

    AnElephant does like to wander
    As if his feet are sitting on wheels
    But I think you should know
    Before to your home you do go
    That you are only ever as old as you feel


Go on, say something, even if it's rude!
