    Just Curious -- Where Are You?

    Ralph and I have wondered how far reaching Soulful Detroit is.

    Please let us know, as much as you are willing to volunteer, your
    country, state, province, city, etc. Just curious . . .

    Gracia, Merci, Danke and Thanks.

    Ralph! Tend to your use of parentheses.

    Greetings from Dorset, one of the most southern English counties; messaging you while at home in the coastal town of Bournemouth.....

    We looked up Bournemouth, WGB. Do you swim in the English Channel?

    Swimming in the English Channel?....ha! no, I don't, 9A....nor even in The Solent, the stretch of water between this part of the southern coast and The Isle Of Wight, beyond which is the English Channel. Very few people would be strong enough to withstand the currents in either stretch of water.

    As a point of reference, very shortly after leaving Southampton on 10 April 1912, RMS 'Titanic' passed Cowes Esplanade on The Isle of Wight at the start of her maiden voyage. There had been an incident there involving 'The Olympic' [sister ship of 'Titanic'] seven months before, repairs to which led to a delay in the commencement of 'Titanic's maiden voyage. It was felt by many that there was then pressure placed upon Capt. Smith to, where possible, make up for lost time...and you know the rest of that tragic story....

    Long before that, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert bought the Osborne estate on the IOW as a private home in 1845, now open to the public to view.

    Five years even prior to that date, my family's furnishing business had opened in my original home town of Lymington [in the county of Hampshire, as was Bournemouth until 1970s], twenty miles along this side of The Solent. It remained privately owned by my family until 1997. I was the fifth successive member of the family ever to work there....and am now the last surviving - !

    We do have various swimming clubs here in Bournemouth...but most people are pleased to just stroll or cycle along the promenade which runs for miles directly behind the sandy beach....

    And finally...if you remember ever viewing the 1980s/1990s BBC television series of 'Miss Marple' productions [based on Agatha Christie's novels, and starring Joan Hickson] many of the interior and exterior scenes were filmed on location right here in Bournemouth and Dorset.....

    Wow, WGB. Can´t give you another ¨like¨ yet. How interesting. Google Maps does
    not identify the Solent, just St. George´s Channel and the Celtic Sea.

    You would just need to narrow the search a bit, 9A.

    St G's Channel and Celtic Sea are too far to the west.

    We are all to be found in the middle of the south coast [and so much smaller in size than in your own country...].

    'The Solent' is small, but should come up on Google Maps.....or try 'The Solent' on Wiki... an aerial image there, showing Southampton Water beyond.....

    Errrr...aaah I'm looking at a respectable number of posts, but only seeing a couple of responses. Are most of you on the lam, or witness protection program? Unless the majority of views is from lurkers, which I doubt....You guys having a problem
    with this?

    We don't often have fog here any more, and no, I do not know the Queen.
