Hi Eric, that's a great trip, sounds more like a wartime patrol in a Typhoon! :D

I note your screen cap is marked 'not secure', perhaps my old version of Safari is paranoid.
If I click on the question mark Safari asks me if I really want to exit the page :roll: ...

Not secure probably because it’s not a https site?.

okay, it’s the strange way the host site creates the image address (as an IMG within a URL) like photobucket used to. I’ve shortened it to standard format.
