Trafalgar Day – Pickle, advertising agencies, TV, and a marine magazine

I can barely keep, up with it!
This is one of those days which reminds me of the debt we owe those who went before us to build our world.
The marine painting “Trafalgar Dawn” still haunts me (available in prints see http://www.frickers.co.uk/marine-art/trafalgar_dawn.html).

I am planning a new piece of marine art, the opposite view.

Today was very 21st century though.

I have had today 3 enquiries about my marine painting which may be of interest and found myself yet again busy with Trafalgar and Admiral Nelson issues.  Pickle__detail_of_signal_2214__Popham__s_code_e.jpg

Sarafsa, a secretive super yacht

While in Cannes on the cote d’azur sussing the super yachts,  I spotted Sarafsa, the 3,250 ish ton super yacht – or is it superyacht?   Sarafsa_at_Cannes_IMG_5519_wp.jpg

As Sarafsa is now thoroughly in the public domain here are a couple of photos snapped as my boat passed Sarafsa.   Sarafsa_at_Cannes_IMG_5517_wp.jpg
