    Nice one John

    Padstow is very photogenic and the small harbour does lend itself so well to panos such as this. I also like Padstow but am saddened by how busy it's become over the years that we've been going; it's all we bloody visitors staying at campsites like Carnevas that are the trouble

    Cheers,
    John

    I wonder how many people know what an "Emmet " is?

    Originally meant an ant, and presumably by extension applied to tourists who are crawling all over the popular destinations.

    Grockle, on the other hand, is reputed to derive from an apparently famous Swiss clown by the name of Grock (me neither). Visitors to coastal resorts came to be known as little Grocks (or Grockles) because of their boorish and clownish behaviour. I think I prefer to be an emmet.
