... to be beside the seaside...
Anyone remember that old English music hall song? Please link and sing along! (You have to love those illustrations!) Here's the words:
Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside
I do like to be beside the sea!
I do like to stroll upon the Prom, Prom, Prom!
Where the brass bands play:
So just let me be beside the seaside
I'll be beside myself with glee
This silly ditty came back to me today as Ellie and I took a morning walk along the beach, in cloudy weather, as the marine layer drifted in from offshore.
And there's lots of girls beside,
I should like to be beside
Beside the seaside!
Beside the sea!
Here are the cell phone pictures...
You probably can't see them, but there are dolphins in this one--somewhere, I think. (Try enlarging and, if necessary, stretching the imagination...)
... and (visible, at least!) pelicans in this one...
Cell phones are fun to have along, but no substitute for a real camera! Anyway, it was kind of an English kind of a day, with those grey skies. I felt right at home. And tried to remember the words to that song. Tiddely-om-pom-pom.... As usual, when I got home, Google came to the rescue.
Have a great weekend!
