Camping on the pig farm beyond the abbey in the sixties �� But loved it. A fine wee nugget of a port town that never seems to lose its charm - there's no room, unlike sprawling cousins of Scarboro, Brid and Filey

Re: Where in the World is Gumbo? 7.8

WorkerBee ·
It does look like a puggle. Of course that could be either a baby platypus or a baby echidna. In either case it is likely to be in Australia. My guess is that is an echidna. Since there is a breeding program for echidnas at the Perth zoo it could be there. My guess for the location, however, is the Australia Zoo, former home base of the late Steve Irwin, the crocodile hunter.

A most amazing and lovely landscape (with tip of the hat to its Scottish counterpart). When is a good time for a tourist to see the heather in bloom? I know some folks that would plan a trip just to see these colors.

Re: Walking the Freedom Trail in Boston

GarryRF ·
Must be 15 years since I walked most of your journey through Boston. The mix of old and new buildings are fascinating as you walk the city. Many of the older buildings look like they have shared an architects plan with older buildings here in Liverpool UK. I do find it odd that 5 Bostonians were stoning a single Redcoat then you call them unarmed ! A situation that would bring about the same end results today. I enjoyed your Blog. Thanks.

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Oct. 18, 2015: Olive Grove, Saint-Remy

GarryRF ·
I always thought picking olives would be a labour intensive task. I watched as the farmers wife placed a round blanket ( with a split in it ) on the ground under the tree. Then the tractor had a claw attachment that gripped the tree. Then it shook the tree for 10 seconds. All the olives fell on the blanket. Job done - 1 minute a tree !

The Airport...and how it got that way

Northeast England

PHeymont ·
Inspired in part by pictures here by Ian Cook, Paul Hunter and Beverley McBean, and in part by several detective series by Ann Cleeves, I've inserted a few days in the Northeast next year on the way to Edinburgh. I know I can't see it all, or even most, and would love suggestions for worthwhile sights, museums and places, more urban than rural but not exclusively so. In advance, thanks!
