Tea party

Yorkshire tea.. in a shop in Santa Monica, Los Angeles. Surprising, not least because I thought we’d stopped them trading with the New World centuries ago…



Escaping from Alcatraz

October 31st, 2011

Escaping from Alcatraz from Ken Roberts on Vimeo.

Always a bit ahead of the blog – in this case a thousand miles or so south of Seattle, down in San Francisco – Ken takes a short break from repairing his rabbit ravaged netbook and visits… Alcatraz Island.

Incidentally, Lancastrian Ken generally prefers to avoid tourist traps, but did find a visit to the island well worth the effort. Which translates as about US$26, the freedom to wander around at your leisure, an excellent audio tour, and the queuing to board the ferry tolerable… even if surrounded by garlic-munching surrender monkeys… And nobody asked him if he was Australian…
