Some sea talk over the weekend

The sea is yellow, 70x50cm Pastel on board


.... across at Watermarks.



While searching through the depths of my comp, I discovered that of course most of my holiday snaps are of the sea. And more importantly: with many ferry crossings. There are some colourful gems among these, one I thought I'd share:


(Oye, guapitita! - We need another ferry crossing! Soon!)

I am off for the weekend... actually already gone. For some research stuff in Bath. Bath was booked up with tourists... and so I am ending up in a cool upmarket(ish) hotel in Bristol: with pool, sauna etc...

And I grin at the thought of a weekend spent in a strange city and in a good hotel. Just the right thing after too much lecture writing and teaching over the past weeks.

Definitely different to some of my first hotel rooms on my own in strange places, with no working shower, only pay porn on telly and on the wrong side of the train station... they made me usually think of exactly this piece of bad German 80s retro:



Have a very good weekend! I know I will...

Thank you, you two.... :) The weekend was even better than I thought it was going to be. But I am shattered, still more teaching to prepare :(

Hi Gesa,
the video made me laugh ... and feel old. Those were the times when I was a teenager and we went to school dances and Nenas songs were just so cool...

Hi Astrid... hahaha... see, I wasn't allowed to school discos then (just slightly less old ;)); so she's always been retro to me.
