Just having a bit of a laugh at Pato's intolerance!!!!

There wasn't any mention of anything racial, I'm more than happy to discuss that issue, but surely its another topic!!!

Blimey.....you don't have to say too much on here do you!!

:D :D
Pleased you've noticed that, are we losing our sense of humour or wa!

I apologise Lotte, not used to "bigot" being used in that turn of phrase these days. :roll: :roll:

Yes, a nice walk along the boardwalk and a couple of beers, sounds good to me. 8) 8)

I'm uploading the video now but it still has 45 minutes to go and I'm off to bed. Hopefully, it will be ok.

Oops, it hasn't uploaded, I'll try again tonight.

Can't we keep those idiot joggers off the thing they're a pain in the arse, they go there on holiday and can't stop running I'll bet their family are fed up to the back teeth with them. :x

Oh dear, all these comments about the Boardwalk. Can someone please explain to me as why it is being constructed, who is paying for it and for whom does it benefit?

(1) It should keep people from wandering too close to the cliff edge, not a safe place due to errosion.

(2) It should also save the natural ecosystem from being trampled on by walkers, dodge the snakes.

(3) Keeping someone employed during the low season, which should be ongoing with maintenance.

(4) Probably paid for with local taxes, european grants, tourism grants. I suppose they could have put turnstiles along its length where you could "pay as you walk", that would lighten the load on the locals.

These are just my ideas of the reasons for the boardwalk being built, no doubt there may be others. It's there, enjoy. :) :)
