[Edited to add: oops, didn't read the instructions carefully enough and missed the deadline!]
The additional challenge: Um ... this is what much of Squid Knits is about. Is my post going to be subject to accusations of doping?
And, yet one more challenge: I am turning this contest entry into a contest itself. Anyone who correctly identifies all of the structures, in photographs labeled with a letter, will be entered into a drawing for some yummy yarn of my choosing and some chocolate that is native to my locale. One caveat, the prize will not be sent out until the cooler weather due to the chocolate content.
Contest closes at midnight, July 31, 2008.
And here we go ...
I live in a small island situated where a fairly famous river meets the Atlantic Ocean.
Over the last several years, my island has become more and more bike friendly and one can ride around the island with roughly half the trip being along, or really close to, the water.Near the southern tip of our island sits a small fort. This fort served as the main immigration intake center until facilities on an island to our west took over.
(A)Several bridges connect my island with both the mainland
My island was, unfortunately, the target of some horrid attacks almost 7 years ago and the damage is still evident.
But my island is home to more than just buildings, we even have areas that are somewhat natural.
And areas that serve to fulfill the most basic needs of my family.
Figured it out yet? Need one more hint? Our local newspaper is published less then a mile from our home.
