Seen near the train station...BCN is such a stylish place.
We went off to the Barcelona Boat Show today...that was a blast...from the past too.
You know what? Trade shows everywhere must be identical.
I swear they had exactly the same carpets as at the Toronto Boat Show, and the same junky kitche being sold at some of the stands. You know those hard-sell guys with the latest miracle cleaner...and too many tatoos, and that hard look behind their eyes of someone whose life has taken a few too many odd turnings?
I truly could not tell where I was most of the time...Toronto? Florida? BCN?
Youngest was me revisited. I so remember wanting to go on ALL the boats and check them ALL out. She didn't get to see them ALL. There are rather a lot more here than there were in my youth.
Power boats have surprisingly little accomodation down below.
We were on some REALLY HUGE boats when we went visiting in the Bahamas....
Despite all the sameness, there were moments when I didn't feel that it was January in TO and we were all desperately trying to remember what summer was, and that there are boats, and that water does have a liquid form....
See, some things were kind of unique to here.....
You don't normally see gegants in TO or Florida....
This is a Phil Bolger designed mini-sharpie...for those of you who get that...probably just the man...but she's FAST. Maybe we'll build one on the terrace. Or not.
You cannot get a decent photo at a boat show...too much background clutter and none of it is pretty.
Then there was this display of Russian stuff. Don't remember ever seeing that in TO at the boat show. A little weird.
AND CHECK THIS OUT! Not in Kansas anymore Toto!
Whose ever seen one of THOSE before?!?????
