  1. I’ve looked for Ringo Starr in the picture but haven’t found him. According to Wikipedia: “The idea for the song came about when Starr was on a boat belonging to comedian Peter Sellers in Sardinia in 1968. He ordered fish and chips for lunch, but instead of fish he got squid (it was the first time he’d eaten squid, and he said, ‘It was OK.’” That reminds me of my experience in Lisbon in the summer of 1966. From the menu in a restaurant I ordered lulas, not knowing what the Portuguese word means. Even after the dish came I still didn’t recognize it. Only later, when I checked a dictionary, did I learn it was squid.

    • Well, Ringo is probably already inside the garden. But you can at least see a Beetle. 🙂
      But interesting fact. I didn’t know where the inspiration for the song came from.


  2. I say if you are going through octopus garden territory just ride straight through without stopping. I see one guy has been plucked off his motorcycle and is now on top of the octopus’s head. While another interpretation is that this is some kind of roadside curiosity and the guy climbed up there. Wonderful creativity whatever the case might be!
