Ever seen the Google-man? (now including me)

Arrived in Dorset this morning for a couple of days,
shopped in Bridport then headed for campsite beside beach at Eype,
while I was setting up noticed the site owner walking around pointing out scenery of interest to this guy with fancy camera on tripod.

then saw a notice pinned in showers announcing 'Google are here today surveying site for inclusion in Streetmaps,'
Not sure the timescale but us and camper will be included when its published

(faces blanked out presumably so thats good for you lot) :)

Well i hope the picture with your De-mountable in also shows the campsite name?

I'm guessing that you will be mentioning the national free publicity they will receive once you post it on the Forum & Facebook page.

That should get you a weeks free stay there next year, 'on the house', with a bit of luck.

Had I known and given I was at Bridport market just earlier and could have bought some antlers to balance on my head thus



continuing the trend for mocking the Google by Americans
