Silly Tuesday smiler

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 4 September 2012 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

It has that Colgate ring of confidence about it :-0

Found this one on the fish quay in North Shields on an afternoon ride across the ferry. Sometime in the near future I'll show some pictures of South Shields taken from the other side of the River Tyne.

I can't stop staring at that.... fish. Are we certain it's a fish? I feel really badly for the poor thing. But I am SO glad it is not still swimming in a part of the ocean I'm not even likely to swim in myself. Also kind of freaked out that he might have family.
