Many thanks, Bob.
Thank you for the compliment. Best wishes. B & A
On closer look at the menus—no nostalgia. Closer look at sizes of things I know, an egg yolk for example, and they do look small. Recreation spot prices and portions. As much as British food has been criticized I find some of my good food memories there. Got to love a pint of the local with a ploughman's lunch or steak and kidney (crave that!) and there was a "Williams Magnet Restaurant" at 34 Cornwall Street in Plymouth that had lunches I came back for almost daily when we were in port there. Card had "Opposite British Home Stores" and I remember "little old ladies" with their shopping and sometimes little furs and inexpensive but very good food I still remember. Ate in much finer places with far less satisfaction and almost no memory of the food! There is one mention I can find on the web, here. Now even the street has changed drastically.
Cedar of Lebanon, possibly.
Just too quaint!
Many thanks. Bob.
Interesting building but it and the view immediately reminded me of so many places here where either "renovation" or totally new construction try hard to create vibrant life in a cemetery and fail. At least I can just laugh at the ones that tried in "virgin" areas without destruction of either unique natural or historic beauty.
That "piggy bank" seems to be a bit of an exercise to open and remove the collection. I hope there is some easy access in back because unbolting the cap with all those painted bolts might be a day job.
I thought of these high tidal range little ports every time there was any desire to do a check anything on the bottom. No need for this!
