    I have never seen this picture before. It is so odd to see them with white shirts on and no pants. I just don’t know what to say. I wonder did they just decide to go dip in the fountain or pool I see in the background.

    Do you know where this picture was taken?

  2. Peter Hodgson says:

    BLJ, the photo was taken in Tenerife in 1963, Tenerife is one of The Canary Islands

    San Telmo pools. They went to the pools because Paul almost drowned at the beach.

  4. BLJ says:

    Thank for the info, Mr. Hodgson, I had no idea what Tenerife was before now.

    mj, How did Paul almost drown, doesn’t he know how to swim?

  6. Vison says:

    Oh wow, I’ve never seen this picture before! I love it. They do look a little funny with shirts and white legs! =D

    BLJ, Paul went swimming on his own in the sea, and went past the reefs, and got himself caught in really dangerous, swirling waves. This is Pauls’ account of the drowning incident:

    “I got washed out further and further away. I yelled for help but those blighters on the beach just didn’t seem to hear anything at all. Sure, it seems quite funny now, especially when I tell you that I nearly came to blows with George and Ringo when I did finally get myself back on shore. Truth is, though, I really did feel I’d had my lot out there. It looks pretty scary when you think you’re in serious danger of drowning.”

    Is it sinful to still lust after George? I don’t care. Just wish I could caress those thighs!

    Whillikers .. imagine being an ant scampering around those mountainous legs and butts.

  12. BLJ says:

    Sophie, thanks for the info. I think that is a pretty sexy photo of the boys.

  13. CS says:

    Btw, if you’re wondering where John was, he was in Spain with Brian at the time…

  14. Sophie says:

    Georgesgirl, I feel the same about Paul – except he looks like a sulky kid in this picture! XD

    I suppose we should cut him some slack if he just nearly drowned… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Whenever I see pics of them in Tenerife I have to think what Klaus remembered about their first morning (in his book “Warum spielst du Imagine nicht auf dem WeiรŸen Klavier, John?):….they came in late due to flight delay and nevertheless they all got up early when the sun rose, standing at the window and gazing at the the panorama they had never seen before, all three of them wrapped into their white bedsheets. A bunch of soon-to-be superstars, sleepy and mesmerized by the beauty of a sunrise.

    THAT would be a picture I would crave for.
    Never seen this before though….beautiful!!

    WHOA, I didn’t know they weren’t wearing pants, I thought they were wearing khakis or something.

    they all got a terrible sunburst in that trip

  18. Alpha Bitch says:

    Sophie’s first paragraph and Paul’s first sentence sound like his marriage to Hedwig.

    Hey !!!! Smile, lads !!!! You are on holidays !!!!

  20. Tammy says:

    Apparently just before this was taken Paul had been swept out to sea and almost drowned, George and Ringo stood on the shore laughing, when Paul faught his way inhe ‘wasn’t even in a laughing mood’
