Squid weight and Intercourse Islands

Wed, 2006-05-10 21:26

Don't know Okuma - just ate most of it and used the rest for bait. No wastage with this one. As Moppy says, great eating! Looking forward to going back to the Dampier Archepelago in 12 weeks time (counting the days already like a kid at Christmas).

Before I head there again, is there anyone out there who knows why a couple of islands are called East Intercourse and West Intercourse Islands? I'm a chalkie and trying to explain these doubtful names to the kids without any background info and with a straight face is a fair challenge! Any help appreciated.

Hi Big Frank

Not sure if this is on the ball but theres a place in Pennsylvania called Intercourse named in the early nineteenth century to commemorate commerce, not copulation!!

Maybe to do with the mining?
