From a wood-burning stove on the lower deck came a dish of seafood. Then a second, a third, a fourth ... soon you couldn't move for plates.

Which isn't bad going when you consider the angles hubby David has lined up for her in his new book and exhibition of photographs, The Lady is a Tramp, now showing at Hamiltons Gallery.
