Wonderful photos - all

Is there any way to put them in an album format? That would be my screen saver for sure - real folks, real boats, real places to dream about sailing to one day. While I'm at it - how about locations, co ordinates or whatever to find them?
Please remember - "nothing is impossible for the guy who doesn't have to do it".
Gotta get to the Med - anyone want to swap boats or offer up a berth for a couple weeks with a Chesapeake sailor?

If no one objects you can make that album and in fact it is a good idea. There are many programs that allows you to do that. You have just to save the photos to your computer and make a screen saver slide show.

Regarding places, almost all has the name of the place. You can google earth it. If some forget to post the place you can just ask, I bet everybody will be happy to give the proper indications.

Regards

Paulo,
I have a special love of the Basque country but our time spent in Galicia I count as very special. We toured from a'Coruna all the way down to the border where sadly we found out that at the time Australians needed a visa to get into Portugal. So we rented a cottage on the river overlooking the river, kicked back and over indulged in food and wine. The food was exceptional and I still buy Albarinho when I find it in Sydney. Coincidentally had a bottle with dinner last evening. i note here that Portuguese wines are almost impossible to find in Australia except of course for some very ordinary Rose.
Ignoring the argument as to whether Spain and Portugal should be one nation, it has always seemed to me that Galicia is more properly part of Portugal than Spain.
I don't have my all my image files on this computer but I'll hunt down some pics from our Galician tour and post later on.
As for the Med, I would much rather spend my time on the Iberian Biscay and Atlantic coasts even though I am fond of Barcelona, Menorca and Formentera.
Cheers
Andrew
