Under the sea

Good morning!
Are you having a good weekend?
It was a very wet day yesterday ... cold and windy too - It's the most rain we've had for a while ...



We have Kirsty hosting for us and she has picked the prompt
Under The Sea

Tough one unless you go scuba diving or something like that! I mean was I really going to photograph a fish?
It had me stumped for a time - then it hit me ... Of course!


The yellow submarine ... Are you singing the song? Ha! Bet you are...
So, this is part of Liverpool's Albert Dock ... Reclaimed buildings from a past era which now house quite a few attractions including the Beatles Exhibition, the Slave Museum, various galleries as well as bars and restaurants... and of course watersport areas

The sculpture or statue? of the Yellow Submarine here


is situated at our local airport... The John Lennon Airport

But taking you back to the Docks in the city centre ... Here is another yellow Submarine that is now for hire as apartments


If you'd like to see inside this or the Joker Barge and read about them you can click This link


Unfortunately the Liverpool Duck ... An amphibious tour vehicle that first took people around the city and then plunged into the dock has been retired after it sunk! 


It had sunk before and to think that the Queen took a trip on this only a few weeks before Yikes!

I'm dying to see what the rest of the team have come up and what you come up with so join us at


Have a lovely Sunday

Thanks for sticking that song in my head Ros. LOL I am a huge Beatles fan so I don't mind. I'll just bet you have come up with the most interesting photos of everyone for this prompt. Really fun! Hugs!

Hi Ros...well I love your photos on this topic - the yellow submarine for the Beatles is very appropriate - now you've got me humming it, nothing like that over here. I too had to think hard to find pics and it was only a fluke I'd taken the diving suit one at the aquarium. Hope you enjoyed your weekend, cheers Robyn

Sylvia said...

Fabulous underwater pictures, Ros, I love all the Yellow Submarines! Very fitting for a gal from Liverpool! Hope you had a very good Monday!
