Another brilliant, bright, breezy day. In this weather, the yachts on the lake are electric white and shimmering.

Perhaps he's St Amand - patron saint of bar-keepers! No, actually, I think he may be an ordinary person, perhaps part of a cycle depicting the activities of the different seasons of the year.

I like to think of it as being Keats's "beaker full of the warm South..."
