QUIZ, where have i been???
« on: May 16, 2018, 06:35:17 PM »
Thought I might try out a quiz on you bunch of brain boxes ;D
I have a total of 7 pictures that I will put up a few at a time,more detailed clues in the later ones.
So where have I been? ?? :D (start the cheesy theme tune) :D and a paper hat and a tin foil badge to the winner  :P

Looks like you've been to hell and back. Seriously though might be around essex/suffolk border. Looks very tranquil and the bike finishes the picture off nicely.

Tranguil ? Hmm,most of the time,but sometimes especially far from it.

I dont know where you are but I like the way the footpath sign sends you straight into the danger area.

I expect someone turned it around during the war and its never been corrected

I might have a slight advantage here, so I will be criptic with my guess.
I would say you are on an island, which can be explosive at times, has very few residents, and everything has to follow the rules

Yes, Foulness! I thought so.

I've been searching around on Google maps and the place that looked most likely was the viewpoint from the end of Shoeburyness East Beach, where you can see the warning signs and wire fence etc.

Well done Anglegrinder ! Just a bit of fun and thought it might be a interest to members who like unusual places as a incentive to get out on the bikes.The main road to the far side of the island is by appointment only,but the other route to where I took the photos you can ride up to a barrier and they check you out from the gate office and raise the barrier (in and out).
Not too sure about taking pictures either but I didn't get arrested . :D
Weather looks good this weekend and I am going to the 2 stroke day at the ace café sunday.
You are our winner ! :) Have a good weekend.
