Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day: April 15th, 2014. Deck Chairs in Hyde Park

DrFumblefinger ·
I, too, am tempted to stretch out and take a nap. Fond memories of Hyde Park. My wife and I stayed within a block of this great park during our honeymoon some years ago.

I like having a desk in my hotel room. A sofa or easy chair would work, but I dislike working in bed. I hope we're given some options.

I think updates of this picture should be a recurring reminder of the seasons. Add coats to the chair, take them away. Add hot beverages, change to cold. And in fits of summer euphoria, add bathing suits, take them away... I'll be watching!

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, July 15, 2014: Deck Chairs Aboard QM2

DrFumblefinger ·
Your photo reminds me of a cruise we just did a few months ago in the Chilean fjordland. When we approached cape Horn, famous for its stormy seas, we were in constant winds of 100 knots, with gusts of 160 knots. The deck was even emptier than your photo above would indicate! Nice photos, Islandman. Thanks for taking all of us aboard the Queen Mary.
