Connected – Weekly Photo Challenge

Being waterways travellers, we’d obviously have more than our share of ‘bridges’ to illustrate this week’s challenge – ‘Connected‘.

But then I found some other forms of ‘connection’:

IMG_1916The Mauvage Tunnel lies at the summit of the Canal Marne au Rhin West, connecting the basins of the Seine and the Meuse.  At just under 5 kilometres, it can be a cold and spooky journey, not for those with a tendency to claustrophobia.

DSCF4302How long since you last saw one of these?  This one, at the Bury Transport Museum, has clearly seen better days judging from the taped up earpiece.


The chain ferry at the entrance to Poole Harbour, Dorset connects Sandbanks to Studland.

DSCN4600And I don’t know what this young lady’s misdemeanour was, but she used to grace the moorings at Gergy on the River Saone, France.  She’s not there now, maybe she dropped into the water.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

    All great connections, Sandra. I especially love that last one! She couldn’t hang on forever, I suppose.


I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
