  1. Hi Sue
    It must be wonderful to roam the almost deserted villages of C.T. without hordes of tourists cramming every square inch. I imagine the exposure by Disney/Pixar will only increase their numbers greatly. (“Finding Nemo” led to major plundering of clown fish stocks from the Barrier Reef).

    • The quiet has been the only positive thing about the pandemic Heather, and when allowed I am certainly enjoying that. CT certainly doesn’t need any further publicity to attract tourists and sad to hear the consequences of Nemo.
