rocky coast on right must be the ocean, beach side is protected side I assume.

no palm trees seen. Is this New England somewhere?

Google Earth has a nifty icon in the top right hand corner. And It hasn't been 'shopped.

Recheck the driving side.

New England used to have several of these, but they are now ruins.

This one is indeed a museum.

oops, yes the windshields help, so they drive on the left,
so it must be UK maybe Scotland as it is Northern hemisphere.

link to "several" is mysterious - is that the right link?

A museum? If not to Icarus, then whom?

I was thinking of Icarus's father. Or a guy who shared his name.

I don't know about Daedalus

and did not know so many countries drove on the left - see map
some of those are Northern Hemisphere, so must be UK, Japan, possibly even India, or maybe is this another obscure (to me as a scientist) James Joyce Irish thing?

Murray Gell-Mann borrowed "three quarks for Muster Mark."

Different work. Violating copyright could lead to a very long sentence - either way.

Definitely different work. I was only pointing out that some science types have been fond of Joyce. I couldn't cite stately, plump Buck Mulligan for that.

Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of light and the sun, truth and prophecy, healing, plague, music, poetry, and more

so presumably ??? this has something to do with
sun (recent WITWHH)
or
music (what he is carrying)

Flying a tad low. Fair number of oaks in the background.

Thank you Let me guess.....Is this where the Gutenberg Project began....is that round architectural structure a museum where it all started? Hmmm...is the famous museum on Manhattan a Gutenberg.....hmmmm. it may be Gutenheimer. ....been there but can't recall.

Okay...I want you all to know I have been working very hard this week so a glass of wine was on the agenda when I got home tonight. What I wrote above about 10 minutes ago I should erase but I won't ....Mainly because I was thinking of the Guggenheim Museum when I wrote the Gutenheim....I have a feeling I should stay off of this thread...although I do have a good WHAT HAPPENED HERE if I can ever figure out how to post it. 10-4...over and out smile thank you for listening to me ramble:)
