Yellow submarine


This submarine stands outside the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco. It was constructed in 1966 and could dive to a depth of 100 metres. The famous Commander Jacques Cousteau was director of the Museum for 31 years and I believe this was a submarine he used in his explorations.

We all live in a yellow submarine
A yellow submarine, yellow submarine,
We all live in a yellow submarine

or maybe in an octopus's garden.

At first I thought a spaceship had landed! I can tell by the size that one must not suffer from claustrophobia to board this!

HAHAHA! That song was the first thing that popped in my head and Beetle beat me to it.

This one is a classic, Jilly! Looks like plenty of sunshine in your neck of the woods.

The title brought a smile to my face and a tune in my head.
