New Tag

Trying to come up with a cool tag idea I came across this plantation entrance....noticing the flag stone was 1790, I figured it would make a good theme

New Theme: a construction flagstone from the 1700's (or at a building 200 years old)

Must be a stone, or can be simply some indication of the build date? There is some funny stuff over here.

Something that's attached to the building when it was built....no after the fact historical references

First European settlement here was in 1803. The only building to predate that would be Captain Cook's cottage, which was built in the 1750s, imported from the UK in pieces in 1933 and reassembled in the Fitzroy Gardens near the centre of Melbourne:



Getting a motorcycle within sight of that would be liable to get you arrested!

I doubt that stone and/or wall was built in 1790. Look at any other engraved stone and brick work from the 1700's and you will see that they are not even close to being this crisp.

That being said, according to the national historical society, there is nothing from the 1700's in my state. Unless an Indian burial ground/mound counts. The native Americans did not place stone markers on anything though.

1800 through 1812? that would be 200 years old!

Not sure when I'll be able to go for another wee ride... Time is extremely limited - and winter's coming. Can't go to work by bike anymore, cause there's usually ice on the roads in the morning... I'll see what I can do!
(My place is a bit too young - 1871. Plus it's not stone, but wood. )

Okay, today turned out to be relatively mild and it stayed dry, so I went for a ride! Great stuff.

And I also grabbed the 1700's flagstone tag:





The "Chateau de Monthey" (Castle of Monthey) is in fact much older - from the early 14th century, but it has been added on and rebuilt all the time. This was the oldest flagstone I could find and reach by bike.

Now go and find me an artistically sculptured tree or bush:



(Sorry for the glove in the picture... )

NIce grab!
And nice bike!

The hotel tag would be one for me, but there's no riding at the moment. It's bloody cold and deluge has come over us. Raining/snowing nonstop since Sunday.....
In a week's time I'll be going to Hawai'i, that should be better.

Thanks! I'm quite fond of my cargo hack. It's about all I ride anymore. Perfect for commuting and running errands. I just got back from the grocery store with a sidecar full of food. I can't do that on my two-wheelers.

The hotel ought to be easy for the European crowd. Sadly here in the US, chains are far more prevalent. The small independent hotels were always my favorite when I lived and traveled in Europe.
