Hey Sue

We spent a good few nights in the Time Out Bar last year, I can still remember the hangover to this day! :?
If you go just past there towards the beach and you get to the sea side snack bar, we nearly always have a Breakfast there,,,,ahhhhh nothing better.

I am working on some gallery pages, when I can figure it out I will put them on the site.

Regards

The pictures certainly make the Baccus look good Al, and from all the right ups I have read on here and elsewhere, the food sounds wonderful and the atmosphere the same.

Incidentally, Baccus, if I recall correctly, is the Greek God of Wine, who was chased by many women. He was also the God of Theatre, as most plays in early Greek times were about is drinking, prowesses, etc. A little bit of history.

Yeiamas, Chris.

Hi Chris,

Well there goes one of the quiz questions :? :? :?
(not that there is one yet)

But yes your correct :D :D :D

Bacchus was the ancient Greek god of wine and festivity.
He was accompanied by satyrs (representing lust) and maenads (dancing girls or nymphs).
He was taught by Silenus, who is often shown in Bacchus' entourage as old, fat and riding on a donkey.
Bacchus is sometimes shown in a chariot pulled by leopards.

Thanks Al, I served on a ship in the Navy called the Bacchus, and the ships crest was of a Greek God, holding grapes, or sometimes just a bunch of grapes was depicted.

Yeiamas, Chris.
