Thanks again Shelagh; he has had paintings exhibited at the Albert Dock. I'll pass on your kind words.

Thanks to you as well, Patricia. I thought he meant it to be boring from an artistic perspective, after all he never experienced the fury and majesty of the falls, so it was not personal to him. My description must have fell on deaf ears. :) I agreed with him when I saw the picture. The picture was taken from about half a mile away, so it was not the same. You're so lucky to have seen the Northern lights, we went to Scotland to try and do it on the cheap, but were unlucky. Our logic was that you've more chance of seeing them the longer you stay. We could have stayed in Scotland for seven nights, for the price of three in Iceland. As it happened we only stayed for five, due to the weather.

Thanks Bernie: I tried my best not to get in it :) You're right about the cranes, they were filming from New Brighton on Northwest Tonight and you could see them in the back ground.

Patricia, didn't realise Alcatraz was such a small island..remember the old b/w film, "bird man of Alcatraz" a Classic..looked like he was miles away from anywhere :roll:
Nice to to see the pics first hand, and not from a brochure or travelogue..thank you Patricia :)

Graham - He is adorable, looks almost like a small puppy!! :D
Bob & Bernie - You are BOTH outdoing yourselves with the
lovely photos!!!
Graham, Thanks for your nice comment. We went through Arizona on
our way to delivering my youngest daughter her car when she
moved to San Francisco. It was cheaper than hiring a company
and it also gave us the opportunity to see a lot of the States.
We took our time, almost six days and stopped to see the sights
in several of the States. :D
