Crimsonprose posted a photo of… Wash Lane, Saxlingham, Norfolk. Why is it called Wash Lane? I’ll tell you tomorrow.

My response: These stones could use a good washing. Even if they’re not nearly as old as the ones in the original photo. 🙂

In response to Crimson’s Creative Challenge #20

Crimsonprose posted a photo of… Level crossing on outskirts of Wymondham, part of the Wymondham to Dereham Steam Railway.

My response: I thought I’d post an old steam engine! This is a (non-working) train that lives at Doon Heritage Village in Kitchener, Ontario (Canada). What a beast!

In response to Crimson’s Creative Challenge #12

Crimsonprose posted a photo: “Two (almost identical) bulls stand guard on the entrance to Blickling Hall, (Nr Aylsham, Norfolk), both hold a shield to display the family’s heraldic devices. The family? The Boleyns.”

My response: A photo from my archives. This is one of the two lions that stand guard at the entrance of the New York Public Library (on 5th Avenue in Manhattan). The lions even have names. I believe this one is called Fortitude. (His twin is Patience.)

Response to Crimson’s Creative Challenge #9

Crimsonprose posted a photo of steps surrounded by water with this explanation: “The tide runs high on Cromer beach, North Norfolk Coast.”

My response is a photo of something else that really shouldn’t be surrounded by water… This isn’t exactly due to the tide (well, maybe partly). I took this photo back in 2017 when we had so much rain that they were worried about flooding in Montreal. (Montreal is really not that close to us!) They closed various dams and such, which caused flooding all over Lake Ontario… I love how the bench on the pier is completely surrounded by water!

Response to Crimson’s Creative Challenge #6…

Crimsonprose posted a photo of “Breydon Water, all that remains of the one time Great Estuary; it hides away at the back of Great Yarmouth.” And while I know the original photo has nothing to do with dinosaurs, my first thought when I saw it was that those were dinosaur bones peeking out of the water!

Note: This dinosaur is from my visit to the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Alberta, Canada back in 2015. I highly recommend this museum to any dinosaur lovers!
