When Puffin met Platchet

By Alan_Coles
....they met on a beautiful island off the Welsh coast. As Platchet stepped off the small boat his face lit up. He had always imagined the beauty of the place but here it was filled with things that only a bird man could love so much. The camera never lies and the smile on his face was as broad the ocean. It didn't matter that her offering to him smelt a little fishy, he was smitten. She posed for him at will but all too soon it was time to leave. The memory of that day will always be with him he thought but for her it was just another day in paradise....

THE END...... or issit ?

:o)

It's Friday, have fun people and smile a little

Smile Love the intro and imagination...Nicely put together with clever manipulation !! Excellent work and a smile before the weekend...
Now there's agreat bit of fun for a Friday, saw this earlier but i was doing things that had to be done so I'm late but here anyway.

Nicely done manipulation, he looks as happy as Larry, whoever Larry is? I think I would have worn a more solid hat for going to an island full of birds.

Shhhh; don't tell anyone but this hat belonged to one of our lady companions - he wore it for a few minutes on the boat back to the mainland...I just caught a candid with my mobile...lol

PS He seemed to like the hat !! ;o)
