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

PHeymont ·
Not so fast, TatToo! First, the first one was taken from a dock on-shore. Second, I think the pilots were probably cursing and hold hands over their eyes trying NOT to look at the clouds in the 3rd one. Best to just keep on checking Gumbo for the best clouds...

Re: Best Outdoor Workout Spots?

Former Member ·
We travel indie style, taking public transport whenever possible. Jumping on and off buses and trains with luggage takes a certain level of physical fitness. We try to start trips in good shape because, if not, we shape up the hard way with all of that walking to bus stops and running for trains. You have not really lived until you have jumped, with bags, at the last possible instance, to catch the ferry behind Amsterdam Centraal just before it pulls away from the dock.

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, March 18th, 2014: Chihuahua Man of Marsaxlokk

PortMoresby ·
Island Man, just over a year ago I landed on Malta after my freighter trip from Singapore. I stayed first in Marsaxlokk for several days, at Duncan Accommodations, above the bar of the same name, which it appears Chihuahua Man is looking right at! I loved the town, especially fun on market day. Thanks for the memory.

Love the photo and the backstory, Islandman! Chihuahuas are really quite amazing animals -- extremely intelligent and very affectionate with their owners. A little small for my taste, but I can see his attraction to them.

The one I have in the photo is married (this was to avoid confusion, I was there with my boyfriend but we're not really married). The one for single was a lot simpler, just a streak on each cheek as I remember it, but I didn't get to see the one for 'looking' as no one in our group was!!

Re: September 20. 2019: Drying Fish, Beruwala, Sri Lanka

DrFumblefinger ·
The Sri Lankans sure know how to make some delicious curries from those dried fish, Professor -- thanks for showing how it's done, so simple really. It's surprising how the tradition lasts, even in days of good refrigeration. For example, in Alaska many of the dog team owners dry hundreds -- even thousands -- of salmon each year with which to feed their teams (and themselves) over the long cold winter. Spaniards remain fond of dried salted fish for their dishes, and I'm sure there are other...

Re: Air and cruise lines: Out of parking space?

PortMoresby ·
Along with end to end as shown in the photo, ships could also park side to side & instantly expand capacity. In Egypt the cruise boats do just that every day as there are lots of cruises & little dock space at stops along the Nile. Passengers walk through adjacent boats' lobbies to get on & off. With no passengers, crew could certainly find a way.

Re: Jan. 30, 2016: Houseboat, Marin County, CA

PortMoresby ·
The roof line is different because your photo is taken from the opposite end. There are so many other distinctive details, the style of mooring for instance, as well as the dock, and the missing stovepipe is behind leaves in yours. I'm also somewhat familiar with the area, having lived twice in Sausalito. I know of no other houseboats on the way to Muir Woods. Give up.

Re: Where in the World is Gumbo? #8

WorkerBee ·
The port is a little hard to place. There is a partially obscured sign on the building in the background that may say "SHOPPING". Could English be the local language? Due to the size and type of boats visible I believe that it is connected to the ocean. There seems to be relatively little elevation difference between the boat dock and the land behind it. Probably a protected bay or inlet. No guess yet.

Re: Where in the World is Gumbo? #8

WorkerBee ·
GarryRF I did notice the Helly Hansen logo. Also the pink boat is owned by Moods of Norway, a seller of "cool clothing for cool people". Both companies have their HQ in Oslo. These two facts enabled me to identify Oslo as the port city. I was never able to locate the dock. Congrats to you for finalizing the location!

Re: Ripley's Aquarium of Canada, Toronto

Certainly is worth going to Toronto just for that experience ! Taking the kids to an exhibition of wildlife stays with them forever. They reminisce with their friends for years. Never forget it. Certainly would love to repeat the experience myself. Looks like a masterpiece of an Aquarium.

Re: Ripley's Aquarium of Canada, Toronto

DrFumblefinger ·
Thanks for your comments, Garry. The kids there were all having a lot of fun, so it would be the kind of place for families to visit for sure. They have special kid-focused exhibits and play areas, perfect for keeping their attention and letting off some steam. The Dangerous Reef exhibit is especially impressive and worth the ticket price all by itself. But there are a lot of unusual exhibits and aquatic animals. My favorite aquarium still remains the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which I hope to...
