Josephine's bathtub.


Sketching from a small boat, I soon discovered, was not such a good idea, even on a calm day and passing vessels added to the fun. In this area, a curiously shaped coral reef is dubbed 'Josephine's bathtub' in memory of Bonaparte's creole wife who is said to have been a regular visitor. In the middle of this very shallow outer reef, a nearly perfect circular hole carpeted in white sand looks like a giant natural hot tub. Popular with the locals.

Thanks Goro. It's a good way of giving a lot of dusty old portofolios a breath of fresh air. Images, after all, are made to be seen.Cheers.
