Thanks a lot, Rich.

We spent three days touring this island during our stay in Cape Verde. We must have seen everything in this vid but I know for sure we stopped at the watery bit after the one-minute mark with that tall pillar of rock. Santo Antão grabbed us more than our "home base" of Sao Vincente...

Wigmore Castle must have been a fascinating place to visit. The video (another Rich classic) gives a good idea of the ambience but I should imagine that nothing beats visiting it in person.

Looking at the wiki it seems there's much to rediscover there among all the vegetation and deposits of debris. But as it's privately owned, English Heritage can only do so much--is that how it is?

English Heritage conserved it in a way that ensured the castle’s natural environment was preserved from 1990 to date. When conserving the site in the 1990s, English Heritage deliberately retained its wildness, as the castle had become home to rare and unusual species including lesser horseshoe bats and wildflowers such as ploughman’s spikenard. Accumulated debris was allowed to remain, and the grasses, ferns and flowers growing on the walls were carefully lifted up and replaced as ‘soft-capping’ to protect the walls from rain and more destructive plants like trees.

Thanks for clarifying, Rich. Sounds like a wonderful strategy to me.

I love this format! The other one as well, but the descriptions/discussions really add to the experience. You can hear most of what's being said, enough to keep the narrative line going. And I didn't hear the F-word once!

Is this the standard format now? Or will you be alternating the two? A great watch/listen anyway.

I'm going to be alternating between the two, John.  So some months will be music over the videos and others non-music videos. I did do this before, and as you know from my sporadic use of the odd swearword back in the day. However, after many requests to do both/more non-music videos more regularly I agreed with the votes.

They're also easier to edit! lol! ... Thanks for the kind words as per.
