Classic Lines

The Painting above is called the Catch and is sold. It shows fishermen at Newquay unloading their catch.

Over the last couple of days I have been very lucky. Alex and I went to London to have a trip on the Orient Express. It was a Christmas present for us. It was absolutely fabulous. I am not a train spotter but I am you may have noticed quite sentimental and love steam engines et al. We went from Victoria Station with a band playing us off. There were several celebrities there such as Andrew Castle, Sharon Davies and others enjoying the day. A Steam Locomotive took us around the Downs while we dined in a style. I won’t bore you with the details but it was truly magnificent if not a trifle excessive.

When we got back to Victoria Alex blagged herself up onto the footplate of the Loco.
It was a good climb up off the platform and a few hearts were beating when she ascended from the platform in her party dress and high heels showing some very classic lines!
On the way home today from Paddington the train in front of us broke down setting us back 2 hours. We found out it was the Orient Express, typical. It was however apparently being pulled by a diesel at the time. Something to be said for the old timers.
Alex has got a bit of framing to do tomorrow to catch up.
