Skye is one of the loveliest places I’ve been, purely magical.

When we did a Scottish Island cruise with Cruise and Maritime we had to miss Skye out due to bad weather.However we did see parts of it when we did a Hebrides coach tour last year, Beautiful part of the world.

There is also a place called HELL in the Cayman Islands.

Graham.

There's also a place called Hell, in Norway

Okay so, I've been researching Hell (no, not that one😁)

Hell in Norway comes from an Old Norse word hellir whch means overhang or cliff cave.

All I can find about Hell in Grand  Cayman is that it comes from an area of black limestone formations and that a pebble thrown among them sounds as if it echoes all the way to hell. 

Maybe someone will find it interesting, I did, but then I'm a dotty old nerd😵🤓

Hell in Norway is famous as the location for the Lankebanen Rallycross Circuit which features in the FIA World Rallycross Championship.

Brilliant P for Portsmouth - love it!

There is a port called Portsmouth in Dominica where we docked once on Thomson Emerald in 2001 but I don't have any photos.

I love the signage on the van as we arrived in Nevis (from St Kitts)

I guess that the Q's are going to slow people down a bit.

I have Quebec, but I’ll have to post it tomorrow, as the pics are on the PC. If anybody wants to go on to the Rs in the meantime, don’t wait for me! 👍
