Fairbourne railway cafe

Fairbourne has a narrow gauge railway that ends up at this cafe, opposite the ferry that crosses the estuary to Barmouth in the summer months. How do you get accents to work in Shutterchance?

The grass and those mountains are superb.Another beautiful picture John.
John Prior: Thank you Frances
No idea about the accents John. I like the picture though even without it
John Prior: Thanks Bill, Shutterchance seems very erratic, some days it will and on others it won't.

We were just on the island of Texel off the Netherlands' northern shore, John. The grasses in this image remind me of our time there...and the sea off to the left. I'd want to eat at that café. smile
John Prior: Sand dunes and coastal buildings seem to have universal appeal, thanks Ginnie

I love the scenery here John. I think accents can be helped along by silly spelling...
John Prior: Thanks Chris, I tried to add the accent over café at the time from the keyboard to simply pasting it in but it would not work. There seems to be ongoing fiddling with the site code, can't say I like manage photos now. I also find the spelling checker and translator does not always work.
If you're English I believe you have an accent. LOL Gorgeous shot but I'd love to see it without the building and sign - just the landscape.
John Prior: Thanks Mary smile
I like the low angle
John Prior: Thanks Chantal

I like the windswept look and view into the distant mountains. Not sure about the cables sign though.
John Prior: Thanks Janet, I quite like signs like this.

This is lovely to see John I used to go on holiday here when I was little a lot and my family still go there, they especially love a place called Shell Island near a little town called Llanbedr, in between Barmouth and Harlech smile
John Prior: Thanks Linda, I must check that out sometime smile

There is something quite special about remote cafes John.
John Prior: Thanks Chad, yes they always seem timeless.
