    Re: Mauritius was: sunrise observation.

    Thank you, Kermit. I have the entire series from Audible.com on my Kindle. As 
    chance would have it, I have just finished listening to HMS Surprise. Before 
    I start on MC this time, I'm going to take a look at Mauritius on Google 
    Earth - now that you've vouched for O'Brian.  :-)
    
    Thanks again,   
    
    Hewitt

    Mauritius (e.g. with the "Morne Brabant being located on the south west part 
    of the island" as I can remember, or details about the battle of Isle de la 
    Passe with the Montagne du Lion).

    lava rock which seems exactly a picture taken from the south "wild coast" 
    some place close to half-way between Mahébourg and Souillac.
