A New Game-8

OK, no RIB in this picture... but in the general spirit of the competition I was wearing my "Scorpion" cap

So, where am I ??? The Island name will suffice.

(Mr and Mrs Jackeen, you're not eligible for this one!)

Wouldn't it!

I guess I'll have to post some more pics and clues as it's a bit out of the way.

We came across this in an ice cream shop...

So which came first - the Ice Cream or the RIB?

Sadly our holiday destination was a lot more modest...

Here's the view in the other direction. Try getting your RIB into there! This rock formation is similarly named to the Needles - Les Aiguilles. There's a whopping great clue.

Hmm. If I'd read that post before I PMed you I might not have been so polite, ye gourier!

And just for the record, yes the weather was a bit dull on our first morning there but it soon turned into a lovely sunny day - and we've got the pictures to prove it - so there.
