Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Ballad of the Bolivar (Kipling)

The run from Sunderland to Bilbao just doesn't work for me as a quick turn-around run. Kilpling doesn't really mention any North Sea landmarks. Most of the references have more to do with the Channel and the Bay of Biscay.

But I suppose I'll just have to respect Kipling's judgment on where the voyage began.

Is there a "Ratcliffe Road" in Sunderland? Yes, I'm familiar with the one in London.
