Going to the dogs….but not as we know it.

The vandals have been busy in the ‘Old Town’ near the harbour. The area is getting a bit trendy now that the Turner centre has opened, there are quite a few new eateries and cafes on the scene. One poor old place that hasn’t benefited from the  upward migration is a pub called the ‘Dogget Coat and Badge’, it’s been closed and sad  a long time. Yesterday allatsea noticed that some wag had altered the lettering of the name to be along the lines of ‘Dogger oats and crumpet’. Crikey, whatever will Tracy Emmin think? She may pop down to check it out, being arty and all that?

There’s been a bit of a seismic shift in the towers. After a 5 month sabbatical allatsea is returning to the world of work. It’ll be a shock my friends, a very large shock. He must be strong.

The last work done in fact was at the start of October and was in a warmer and brighter place than dear Fannit will ever be. Pictured above, the S7000 off Almeria in southern Spain, allatsea disembarked there and took the pic from the liberty boat. Happy days. I believe mucker Mick is there himself at this very minute, wintering until returning north in the spring. That’s the way to do it.

About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
