All the nice girls love a sailor.

All the naughty ones too, admit it.

Tonight I'm boarding the HMAS Tobruk for a wee drinky and a nibble at the Commander's cocktail party. Although sorely tempted to wear a sailor shirt and bell bottoms, I've managed to calm myself and am sticking to a rather nautical red and navy outfit.

Fingers crossed there'll be a gang plank and we won't be hoisted on... my heels would get caught up in the rigging for sure.
