HAPPY TALK: Another "blonde" story

On a recent trip there was the inevitable blonde (and predictably an American).

After a morning on the rocky foreshore of an Iguana teeming Ecuadorian Galapagos island it was time to go back to our ship, via tender.

“I’ve lost my sunglasses”, the lady exclaimed!

Her backpack was thoroughly searched and the women herself.

There was no alternative but to minutely explore every inch of our path on the island bearing in mind it is illegal to dispose of any litter on the Galapagos.

Nothing after a very painstaking hunt.


Did the sunglasses turn up?

The answer is yes.

It seems that the lady concerned was actually wearing the spectacles all the time.  They were just lost in her mountain of long blond hair.
