Water wings


The pool on the yacht you saw yesterday. The boy is about to take a swim. Perhaps he can't swim which is why he has the water wings.

Or maybe he's just learning how to swim.

That is one very lucky and privileged boy!

I think I'll trade places with him. He's got it all to himself.

Poor lonely little boy...At the public swimming-pool, he would have some mates to play with him!

At first I thought as Hilda - what a lucky boy, then after second thought I agreed with Alice - what fun is a pool with no other kids to share it with.

Only in Monte Carlo. Jilly, you do a fabulous job documenting this amazing place. So glad I found you!

It looks to me like he's already having fun, and he's not even in the water yet! There must be other people hidden from view.

Waterwings takes the fear out of the water! I didn't know that yachts had pools!

Oh dear, Jilly a pool on a yacht. Only in Monte Carlo!

I enlarged the photo for a better view. The boy is playing at the back of the yacht and not heading towards the water. Maybe he is forced to wear waterwings all the time in case he falls in, or maybe he's waiting for someone who will come and supervise him while he swims. Either way he looks like a very priviledged and lonely boy.

Yes m.benaut, let's trade places with him. All of us.

Re embonpoint shot, you'd say beer belly or beer gut in English, which doesn't sound half as nice as embonpoint, does it? But the fact remains the same.

I had never really thought of it as "en bon point" - how interesting!

Now that's what I call luxury. Lucky little fellow isn't he?

He's hardly lonely - There is another kid sitting alongside the pool & a crew member standing beside the pool. On a yacht this size there will be a crew of at least 10 people there all the time. As for Parents? well, who knows.
