On the weekend, Captain V and I were checking the online weather forecast for our local area.
As we scrolled over the digital map, I was struck by the number of places in my immediate vicinity that have a double 'O' or 'oo' in them. I've created this graphic so that you can have some fun saying them aloud...
I think that there may even be a few missing, the point is that there's a lot of 'OO' action happening here!
Many are aboriginal names which is very common in Australia but it got me to wondering if this is a common phenomenon around the world. I have some questions for you....
* What's the most unusual place name that you've resided at?
* Perhaps you can beat my list - how many rhyming placenames do you know?
* If you're familiar with my pocket of the world, how many of these places have you visited?
* Do you know of any 'OO' places that I may have missed on my list?
As you scoot about, keep your eyes peeled for interesting 'oo' names or words & please pop back to share.
