I wouldn't have got it without the good clues.

Over to Europe...

Thanks Tyreless. I've not actually been there but have seen similar elsewhere in Iceland so googled crater lake iceland and it popped up at the top of the list. :-)
This next one is the first nights camp site on a quite popular stroll in Europe.

Somewhere on the Camino de Santiago based on the clue, but having not done it I can't narrow it down any further

Gotta keep this game moving so I'm guessing perhaps Albergue de Peregrinos Orreaga Roncasvalles.

Greg - since the photos on the web match this exactly - I reckon you can go next.

Thanks Eggs, I was beginning to wonder if our wobbly was dead.

I'll have a look and post after lunch.

I thought I'd stick with a similar theme and make the next one part of a sanely popular walk, early day 1.

Great Britain.

South Downs Way - paragliding off the chalk cliffs? Somewhere near " the white cliffs of Dover" ?

Not dead but unexpectedly without access for a few days.

Oh dear me Monsieur Ribuck NON!

On this walk on clear day you can see an island out to sea that is very unfeminine. The town that you leave from to start this walk has a famous Knight buried there who has had his share of ups and downs over the years.

On a positive note tho it is good to see that wobbly is not dead- unlike the aforementioned Knight.

OK then Greg. The cliffs at St Bees, from where Wainwright's Coast To Coast walk starts, within sight of the Manly Island on a clear day. And that's my final bid :)

Indeedy yes Mr ribuck it is.

You can see the Isle of Man when conditions permit and indeed this is the cliffs as you first walk up from the starting point at St Bees.
In the attached picture you can actually just make out the dude in the paraglider before we even left the beach.

Thanks, Greg. Here's another from Great Britain. It's an odd place for a bushwalk, don't you think?

The only thing I can think of is the Pilgrims causeway to Holy Island.

Not Pilgrims' Causeway, nor any causeway, nor going to any island, Greg.

Water's getting deeper!

You've got it, eggs. I thoroughly recommend this to anyone who's visiting the north of England.

A dozen or so cross bay walks are conducted each year, and you can find the program here:

Utter madness, I’ll prove it can’t be done. Tomorrow I’ll walk across Port Philip Bay. If you don’t hear back from me you’ll know I’m dead.
