  1. I love the Waverley! I was out sailing in the Solent a couple of years ago and it came past us like a bat out of hell! It moves fast!

    And as for Lauren Bacall...sigh.

    1. Yes, went on a jazz cruise in Cardigan Bay once...

  2. Yes the loss of Lauren Bacall who stormed the cinema at the age of 19 is a serious blow so is the loss of Robin Williams who could possibly follow the likes of them?
