      No. And in this case, also wrong guess about the time of the day.

        Well I suppose we ought to ask some straight questions.

        Are we on the UK mainland?
        Cheers,

            Great, so we're by the sea in England, Scotland or Wales - but we can't park. It's easy now!

              Think aboit the time of the day. That might help to cut some areas out.

                Okay. You can see the clouds are shined by the landside. And since it is not the devon coast, it is not in the morning. So the picture was made in the evening. Now we know that we are on the east coast of England. So you can also stop searching in scotland. Now it should be a home match!

                  Dear Ralf, I don't get that reasoning at all. But you have narrowed the search so well for us that I forgive you.

                    Yup - there are parts of the East Coast that face west!

                      You are nitpickers, you two. I won“t give a hint, which later is none. Concentrate. East coast, no parking monument, bay.... on a tiny island... uü to now still in europe...

                        Nitpickers, are we? Right then, Ralph Plinta. We have no-parking lines all over the place, monumenrs a-plenty, bays all round this tiny island. And the east coast goes in and out all the way from north to south. What shall we do with him Mark?
                        Might it be somewhere on the Sunderland coast?

                          The woman in the photo - is that Doris from the East coast?

                            Sunderland coast is a good guess, but a little bit too far North. You are close to it. And the woman is not Doris, it's Margaret from Kent. She is on a weekend trip.

                              Robin Hood's Bay!

                              And that must be Ravenscar on the distant headland.

                              I've never been there. Anywhere north of Loughborough is bandit country!

                                Oh well done, Clipper!

                              Spot on, Clipper, you solved it. The monument is the Millenium monument, nothing really important. I was there, when i bought my Midget, that was nearby and we spent the night in the Bay Hotel. Wonderful place. Here you see the scenery, when you turn around:

                              Here you have to park your car, when you stay in the village deep down at the sea shore. We just drove down to drop our luggage and later i parked tha car back on the top.

                                Ah yes, I remember your Midget. IIRC, you had problems with the electrics the following day. That must have been four or five years ago?

                                I'll have a think and see what I can come up with.
