Ken - I think you would have found it so interesting to have landed in the direction in which you took off! :smile:
Ken, by comparison, is quite a complex character; I am content to have come to tarmac accommodation at all.
Cheers, Chris

My understanding that you can make your own Madeira just by sending some bottles of claret or burgundy in a shipping container across the Pacific on one of those Evergreen ships ...

I doubt it - Madeira wine is fortified.

Like the four to five (or six) bottles in your previous post.

Really nice shots Ken, about a part of the world I know almost nothing about.

Wish I'd thought of that one when we were in Blandy's shop.

Great shot but the only way I want to get that high is with a shot of bourbon. :cheers:

It seems many here are not fond of heights but this skywalk is a very popular tourist stop. So popular that there are turnstiles to limit the number of people that can get onto the glass bottomed platform at any one time. Fortunately it wasn't that heaving when we were there so the turnstiles were not in use and we could enjoy the view.

Note the simple (steel) rope fence between you and eternity, at the right hand end of the second photo.
