Solent July 13th

Hi

Andy and I were out on the solent this morning for a quick blast round. Dead calm all over and bright sunshine.

I've finally got round to starting a website, so the photos can be found at:

Great photos - of course the ones of Maria Sharapova just have to be the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What has that to do with inflatables? The mind boggles..............

thorper,

Good photos, where did you get the calm seas from. I haven't seen the Solent like that for at least a month. Hope it is like that this weekend......

Manos - I guess the answer is that we were on the rib, and there is a photo of Andy at the console so it counts!

As for the Sharapova photos - thats another part of the website! Nice photos to have though

The answer is obvious to me after I sat there at Wimbledon this year (working) watching Thorper borrow massive lenses from Nikon, so he could stalk her around the courts, I know he is in love. He dreams about taking her out on his big blue RIB for a ride ...... his Web site is an extension of his passions ... RIBS and Sharapova!! Further inspection of his site reveals a fantasy to take her to an ice hotel, like his other girls .... That leaves one question? Where does his D-Day photos come into this theory? Maybe he wants her to dress up as a sailor!!

You've obviously got far too much time on your hands while off on paternity leave! And if I did pull her you would probably ask to video it!

Actually the big lenses were great for taking pictures of people from a long way off - just tricky to keep steady!

Besides given that a good deal of ribnet members appreciate the finer aspects of female form I dont think its a problem. Besides, I posted the link to the boat pictures (with an unflattering shot of your chins!) - everyone just followed the links to the wimbledon ones!
