Visited in June. Branscombe is breathtaking. The walk from the bakery to the beach is beautiful. One of my very favourite places. Do visit.

beautiful photo! LIKEd -Tom :)

These two kittens are stars. My wife and I think we recognise them from a photo we took of two grown up cats in the same place in Mahdia Jan 2013. They were hidden away in the greenery and they caught my eye as we walked past.

The link to the photo is: Mahdia cats

Do you think they are the same two cats - six years apart?

Yes David, its really unbelievable in what kind of shapes wood is used in Austria. Its the first building material available in large amounts, and though its not premium quality, almost every structure has some kind of wood used for building it up. And what can't be used for building is suitable for heating. Or making souvenirs....! In earlier days it was also used for roofs, but it had one problem, it didn't last for a long time. Proof though it can last for decades is seen on this picture showing probably the oldest houses in Austria. In one of them they serve a perfect "Apfelstrudel mit Sahne" ,one of the reasons we come here a few times each summer! Greets, Ed
