Just one more holiday photo to share with you, and that`s this one - a statue of a man of great talent.

The bronze statue is of cours of Eric Morecambe. It`s just a bit larger than lifesize and depicts him in one of his characteristic poses, and with a pair of binoculars hanging around his neck for he was a keen ornithologist.

It was interesting to see that his famous song 'Bring Me Sunshine' was engraved on the steps leading to the statue, and in the space around the base there are granite circles and stars adorned with one liners and the names of celebrities who had appeared on the Morecambe and Wise show through the years - what a lot of different people there were.

It brought memories of happy hours watching that tv programme, especially the Christmas specials which they used to do. Why don`t the tv people make good programmes like that any more?!
