Lancashire & The Golf Coast

Revoir Paris

This chanson is for nostalgics for Paris. Me included.

Le Grand Charles in 1987 age 74, a national treasure.

My Town

La Mer

Almost the end of the holidays. Time for a nostalgia trip. I might be doing this quite often.

My Town

Beyond the Sea

La mer
Qu’on voit danser le long des golfes clairs
A des reflets d’argent

La mer
Des reflets changeants
Sous la pluie
