    Murray, Murray, Murray!! How on earth do you keep up the pressure? I like to travel but have nowhere near your widespread goings. Even when I was young I don’t think I could keep up. Fantastic and such an ability with a camera, you will be known world wide.

      Thanks very much Robert. I like to make the most of the opportunities because most places I will never revisit. This time took a bit of recovering when I got home, probably because I was driving 5 or 6 hours most days in Crete, Andalusia and Washington/ Oregon.
