Road Trip Challenge - Clinton CA

Going for a twofer here; Travelling Hamilton AND Road Trip Challenge.

Just completed a 3,500km road trip north in British Columbia to see the Norther Lights. I forgot to snap the Travelling Hamilton at every place except one on the last day; Clinton, "Gateway to the Cariboo". Beautiful little town.

Spotted near Dunsborough, Western Australia:

Not a name one hears in Australia so, after a bit of googling, I was completely unsurprised to find a link to the USofA, presumably to the same person the Hamilton watch model was named after....

This street is named after the Governor Endicott, a ship built in Salem in 1819 and wrecked near Dunsborough in 1840. She was carrying a load of whale oil destined for the US. The crew of 30 survived.

The ship was named after Governor John Endecott/Endicott (c1587 - 1664), the 1st, 10th, 13th, 15th and 17th (and longest serving) Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony prior to it becoming the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (and the place of my birth!)

Excellent idea. You'll have to work on the geometrics. Square should be easy. Cushion, maybe a furniture billboard. Barrel, barrel will be tough. Oval very tough.
