Did you resist the temptation to cross over into out of bounds territory beyond the gate?

smile smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, I resisted, Cherry...especially because Lisl was with me. grin
Not just private, but STRICTLY private... my oh my...
Ginnie Hart: It doesn't get more private than that, Larry, I suppose?! smile

That is a nice find, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: You probably saw it last year, Ray, when we stopped at the bird sanctuary/reservoir with Chris after Astrid and I arrived at the airport. It's directly across the roadway from all those ducks, geese and swans!
Did you stop to take this nice shot or where you a drive by (camera) shooter? (hehe)
Ginnie Hart: We stopped at the water reservoir/bird sanctuary (ducks, geese, swans) right across the street, Jacquelyn. With all those tourists/visitors, I suppose they had to erect the sign?!
Love the rusty texture.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Michael. That was the appeal for me, of course. smile
I think they are serious.
Ginnie Hart: More serious you cannot get, Michael. I had no intention of finding out otherwise.
Great capture, Ginnie! Love the lichens!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. It was screaming for a photo, of course. smile

Yes, Bristol waterworks are well protected - a nice observation on your way home!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine. I could stop there every year we visit and it wouldn't be too often. smile
What a wonderful find Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. I thought so, too. smile

Only birds & fish allowed in here!
Ginnie Hart: I assume so, Chris!!!

The Reservoir here was created in the 1950s, and I guess this sign dates from then, Ginnie. You have made it look very attractive
Ginnie Hart: It's good to get more of the history, Lisl, so thank you. You're most kind.
It looks as if there is a bit of corrosion in the waterworks department Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I'm afraid I was allowed to go check that our, Chad. smile (And btw, I do know you're not Bill.)

A place can be dangerous !! Safety Gate is very rusty !! Beautiful day Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: HA! We will never know how dangerous it is, Pat, will we! Thanks.

Love the lichen on the old sign, Ginnie.
Bet it seems like a lifetime ago now.
Ginnie Hart: It was all so lovely in every way, Pauline. And YES, it all seems like ages ago! Happy trails now to YOU as you go off on your own week of travels.

A beautiful picture and it looks old, like Lisl said. We sa many of these gates and stone walls. IHVJ
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, MLMA. Almost everything in England looks ancient to me, as you know, just like the rest of Europe. I absolutely love it all.
You're back home now, recovering.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Mary, and enjoying the "second blessing" while going through my images. smile
I like the addition of lichen and flwers Ginnie. Nice capture
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Janet. This is rich, fertile country, as you know!
What a brilliant find, so much detail from the old bits and the new flowers.
Ginnie Hart: It just stood out like a sore thumb to me, Brian. smile Thanks.

I wonder if there a sign somewhere saying "Very strictly private" or even "Extremely very strickly private". It would be nice if it simpley said "Please keep out". I like the weathering on it.
Ginnie Hart: I'm trying to decide if "Strictly Private Property" sounds better than "Keep Out" or "No Trespassing," Alan. Hmmmm.
Enjoy enjoy.... if you pass through London gimme a shout!
great capture by the way
Ginnie Hart: Thank you so much, Ronky. So far it seems like we go everywhere except London when we visit. Maybe one day we'll change that!
A very tempting sign smile
Ginnie Hart: At our age, Tom, tempting the fates seems to happen with more regularity?!

Well spotted, what a great picture Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Anne. I LOVE England. smile
Welcome home, G!

Did you enjoy your cream tea? wink
Now that you've tried Cornish cream tea.

You should also try Devonshire cream tea, when you visit Devon next time. And I let you tell me their subtle differences.

Take Nick to England instead, museums here are free. Save your museum card. Better than half price.

Can't wait to see your holiday photos.
Ginnie Hart: I definitely loved the Cornish cream tea I had, LC. Don't know if I'd be able to tell any subtle differences from elsewhere, however. You can do that for me. smile

Too bad we can't take Nicholas to England. Maybe another trip. This time we want him to see as much of the Netherlands as possible. I want him to be able to picture me here!
Oh....the lichens just make this image pop! Wonderful composition! Glad you're back and I'm sure you had a fabulous week!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Robin. I'm almost done with my first post, believe it or not. I want to get most of it done before Nicholas arrives on July 17th, though that might be pushing it. I'll do my best. smile
Well I didn't want to go into their silly old waterworks anyway ...so there
Ginnie Hart: HA! Exactly, Bill. smile

Yes, they are worried that the British will misunderstand about waterworks and feel obliged to contribute in the ponds. Great shot, with all the little flowers around.
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure the reasoning is good and sound, Louis. Thanks. smile
i think people are paying attention, Ginnie. nobody seems to have visited this even for upkeep!
Ginnie Hart: You're very right, Ayush! HA!
you know that i would have jumped the gate Ginnie... and hurt a lot afterwards... but i would find out what they are hiding...
welcome back home... i'm sure that you have many memories of your trip to share with us....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I can just see you trying to jump that gate, Peter!!! grin And yes, I have enough memories to sink a ship.
belle prise!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, JP.
As opposed to casually private property?
Ginnie Hart: Exactly.
