    Raggi, a Carpetbagger is a piece of fillet steak, enveloped and filled with oysters, mussels, shrimp and other nice things and grilled in a delicious butter & wine sauce with a hint of garlic.
    Actually, the Aussies tried to imitate this and have a clone available that takes a back seat.....just like their cricket as they will discover on coming Wednesday:p

    Some of you guys came close:cool:
    It is the Indian Ocean past the point. Yes, it is near Cape Town, as a matter of fact, around the corner so to speak behind Cape Town.
    The place is Hout Bay.
    The world famous picturesque Chapmans Drive leads to and from Houtbay along the Indian ocean. A drive along Capmans Peak is one of the 10 must do things to do before you die....

    Some more pics.

    Spectacular! Methinks a drive along the peak would likely be the last thing you did before you died!!:p :p :D

    Should I be fortunate enough to make that trip, I think I'd hire an experienced local driver. And I'd bring along a heating pad, for the sore neck I'd have from trying to see everything!:D

    A beautiful, beautiful place. Thanks for sharing.

    No, no Walrus. The club at Rockall doesn't served 'carpetbaggers', only gannet stew...:rolleyes:

    Ah, now if you'd mentioned oyster earlier we might have known. Had oysters once in Knysna that's years ago when Simonstown 'belonged' to a more civilised nation...:D
    Cricket -"A game invented by the English to make every other human activity appear interesting...":rolleyes:

    It's the 'Lady Irene' on a shingly beach with what look like English-style crab-pots in the background...Rigged with bowsprit and bumkin - very English, so somewhere on the South east coast of England ? :rolleyes:

    For similar reasons, I'm thinking somewhere in the British Isles, but I would guess one of the smaller islands..... unless it's somewhere in the Maritimes of Canada's Atlantic coast.
