April 7th

Ready to play?

Since everyone’s staying home, let’s pretend we’re off on an International trip.  My books are set in places I’ve visited, and I’m sharing some of my photos this month.

Identify the location of the picture below.  Remember to register your answer by clicking “Leave a comment” at the top of this page and then write your reply (I’ll approve comments at the end of each day and reveal the locale in the following blog). 

Correct answer receives a point.  If you’re not certain, go ahead and guess! I’ll be posting a different photo, along with a hint, every day this month.  Whoever has the most points on April 30th will receive a prize (you’re not winning the lotto, dear people, but I will mail you a small gift which will include a modest Amazon card).  In the event of a tie, a randomly generated number will decide the winner. So, be sure to check back here each day, & let’s see who can . . .

Name That Location!

Hint: Long before London’s Eye, this was one of the world’s first Ferris wheels and the world’s tallest until 1985.  It was featured in The Thin Man, Scorpio, & The Living Daylights (it scared the living daylights out of me!). You’ll get a point if you can name the city where it’s found.

~Yesterday’s photo was taken at Leeds Castle in Kent, England.  Sharon K. Connell, Cynthia Raleigh, Lisa Maliga, Amy Reade, & Laura Roberts recognized the location.~

    • It’s Vienna. The Ferris Wheel is in the Prater Amusement Park. It used to have 30 carriages prior to WWII, but now it only has 15. I believe it sustained damages in the war. I found it quite scary to ride. The Eye in London didn’t bother me at all.
