    Well, Ralf gave us all the clues in the end.

          Great, Mark! Yes it is. The morlok family was well known for their knowledge of herbs and their healthy functions. The had even a name as healers. For many years the old buildings were abandoned and were devasted, until mr. Bareiss decided to save „the old junk“ , as the people in the neighbourhood called it. He engaged some of the most competent handymen of the area and they brought back the original look. Nowit isa very nice contrast to the ugly hotel nearby. Each thursday you can join an evening there together with hotel guests having an evening dinner composed with local food. You can listen to stories of the old days and you will get a very special feeling for the location. We joined such an evening two weeks ago. A marvellous christmas present by my wife. Over to you, Mark!

            How lovely, Ralf. A heartwarming account of the restoration of the buildings and the special Thursday evening occasions, plus your wife's Christmas present..

          Nice story Ralf.

          Slightly different view then, where's this wet stuff under a leaden sky?

          Cheers,

          Mark.

            I can recognise the leaden sky immediately - it's the one we can't get rid of up here in the wetlands. Don't know about the rest of the picture, though. Must try harder.

            Looks interesting. But no possibilty for search with my i-phone. Have to wait for returning home.

          I've gor as far as beach huts, but that opens up vaaaaa-aaaa-aast possibilities.

            Vlissingen? Or elsewhere in Zeeland, The Netherlands?

          Ooh - I remember Vlissingen. For a little while there was a beautiful big ferry that ran from Sheerness to Vlissingen, none of the Rotterdam traffic, easy access north and south. Happy days.

          Oh, and, no. Not The Netherlands.

          Actually, I'd love to be on a sandy Dutch beach at the moment, watching the North Sea waves rolling in, bit of a breeze, all those wonderful beach restaurants serving excellent food - with a hint of sand. But I'm in a tin shed, reviewing bid documents. C'est la vie.
          Cheers,

          Mark.

            Olau Line - once travelled, never forgotten.

          Not Denmark.

            Tu es contrariant Mark! (don't know if the English translation is correct:you're contrary!)
            So another try:UK?

          I try to follow the lead of the complete expert in truthful and yet evasive answering - everything I know about how to do that comes from Wherrygirl! (Hi Ivy!)

          Yes, it’s in the UK.
          Cheers,

            Dear boy! (Mark)
            Yves, how delicate? fragile? in poor health? Tricky word, delicate. Precision, man, precision.

            Delicate in the French translation: distinguished, refined, subtle....of course!

            Mais oui, monsieur. (That's reached my limit in your delightful language. I'm afraid, Yves)

          Might it be Felixstowe?
          Make that Felixstowe Ferry area, on the River Deben.

            Nope. South of the Deben, Orwell, Stour - and Thames come to that!

              Sounds like this is slowing down a bit!

              So, what do we know?

              We're in the UK. We're in the southern quarter of the UK, well, south of the River Thames anyway. There are beach huts, and a sandy headland in front of us.

              The 'lampshades' are warning passing sailors about the rocks underneath the water, so there must be passing sailors. Just in front of us there is an inlet into a natural harbour.

              I've said too much. Back to you.

              Cheers,

              Mark.

                Those "lampshades" look like the ones at the Harbour entrance of Teignmouth, Devon.

                  They do. Not Devon, but you’re getting close.
