Beauty

When I look at this photo I see a thing of beauty.

Sleek smooth rounded lines. Soft sky blue curves polished to perfection. Headlights winking, teasing me.

I walked passed her. I walked back again to admire her. I paused and dared to touch her. I entered her and sat upon her upholstery.

Her owner pulled a couple of catches and revealed her hammocks suspended from above, and then he dropped her drawers to demonstrate how they became a stairway by which her hammocks were oh so easily accessed.

Honk.

I love her. I want her.

She was not for sale.

  3. Oh a beauty indeed! And a gorgeous colour. I've a deep love of vintage/classic campers. We have a 1980 Toyota Hiace called Betty. She might be slow and impractical but she's a stunner in my eyes!
