Thanks Brian, no Canvey Island this time, too glitzy for me, reminds me of Vegas. No Greggs on Canvey, the area is just too posh, they warrant a Harrods or Fortnum and Mason. Just a quck visit to Sarfend on Mud to see a relo. Southend on Sea was packed with you mob on holidays.;p A13 and A12 were worse than M25.:evilsmile:

OK Kiwis, come forth with your meat pies. Lamb pie perhaps? Had that on Air NZ, some years ago.:')

Chunky lamb and vegetables in a mint gravy. Yum. Wellington I think it may have been where I had one.

I would love to try a Kiwi pie, or stew.

BTW, are we the only nation that eats the animals on their coat of arms or one of the national fauna?

We're not the only country that chooses to savour their national animal – in fact we're one of many.

  • Here are eight countries that eat their own emblem.
  • Australia – Kangaroo and Emu
  • Denmark – Swan.
  • Finland – Brown Bear.
  • Saudi Arabia – Camel.
  • Sweden – Elk.
  • Spain- Bull.
  • Japan – Carp.

Actually I am cooking a Rabbit stew in ye olde slow cooker right now. Rabbits were immigrated from UK, back then. Local butcher sells them filleted, rabbit, spuds, onion, carrot, stock, slow cook for 8 hours, lubbly jubbly.;p

 

Had a mate who ran a pub bistro, put on Aussie Emblem as a mixed grill, crocodile, emu and kangaroo.

A bit pricey for a National pie, but that's the airport for ye. Sachet of Sauce extra I suppose? Paper serviette complimentary? Anyway I am sure you enjoyed those culinary treats.:hearteyes:

Yes, Duxford was brilliant both the static aircraft and the army displays. There were planes flying everywhere, Hurricanes etc. Spent all day there, 10am to 5pm. We were staying at Holiday Inn, Huntingdon Racecourse for the week, only half hour from Duxford.:hearteyes:

 

Did traverse ye olde A13, stayed clear of the white van men, in my Audi A1 rental motor.:halo:
