Thank you Chris,

Apologies for not making it clear in my note.
At first I feared having ended up in a tourist trap, but in the end I thought it was an unexpected stroke of luck.

To Royaldevon: Bats with a tight schedule

Thank you Beverley,


No sounds could be heard.
Perhaps the bats were flying too high above the spectators for that. They came out of a vertical cavern that was already high above the ground and...

Too bad, Gert.

The views from upstairs were stunning.
Only the center of Stockholm was a bit far away to give good results with my camera.
But I certainly enjoyed the views.

To jean113: Noise?

Thank you Jean,


Honestly, I can't remember any noise at all.

Or did the many tourists...

Fishing is the main source of income for the people living in this area.

To lousat: The disappeared cell

Thank you Luciano,


The column with the remaining telephone without booth in your village must be a very special sight. I'd think worth taking a photo of it :)

Thank you Gert,


I didn't know the German word 'Schutz'.
In Dutch we also have the insertion of the letter 's' in compound words. So that isn't unusual for me.
