Mystery Photo #142

Hello blogging family, I’m backkkkkkkk!!!!!!  Did you miss me?

I’m a very honest person, so I’m not going to lie to you.  Over the last few weeks, I barely thought of the blogging world at all, but I had a good excuse.  I was on what I hoped would be the trip of a lifetime, and that trip far surpassed my expectations.  Every moment of the experience was perfection, and I seriously feel like this trip brought my hubby and I even closer together.  As you know, Mike and I celebrated our 25th anniversary this past June, so our adventure in Paris, London, and Scotland was like a second honeymoon.  It was romantic, fun, fascinating, exciting, challenging, and simply jaw dropping amazing!!  We were gone for 2 weeks, and as you will see over the next while as I keep posting photos until you are sick of hearing about our trip, we crammed as much as we possibly could into every moment of every day (except at night when we died of exhaustion), and we created the most amazing memories that will last a lifetime.  I can’t wait to start sharing them with you :).

First things first though.  It’s Friday, and we have to get back on track with the mystery photo.  You’ve had a couple of weeks to rest your brain cells, but it’s time to get back to work and start throwing out guesses.  Ok, ready, set, go…..

    Looks like the well worn diamond plate tread on some kind of metal steps.

  2. I had an idea similar to the first commenter’s: one of those metal plates on the floor surrounding a door that’s intended to keep people from slipping.

    Congratulation on the milestone. Sounds like a wonderful trip; looking forward to seeing the phones.

  4. I’m so glad to hear you had a wonderful time welcome back. I did miss you and your posts. I can hardly wait to see the your pictures from the trip. So my guess today would be part of the walkway/Street/grate. How did I do?

    • Aww, thanks Edith. I took just under 6000 photos, so I have a bit of organizing to do. A lot are multiples of the same shot because I was trying to get the shot without people in it. It was a wonderful trip, and I had many very emotional moments as I looked up in awe at famous buildings/monuments that I never thought I would see in my life!!

  5. Hello, Cindy! So happy to hear you had a wonderful time that exceeded all your expectations and that you got back safe and sound as well. I hope the British weather was on its best behaviour for you.

    I think this picture is either a drain cover or as the commenters said above a metal covers they put down somewhere to make it less slippy. 🙂

    This looks like a metal step of some kind, like maybe on a bus or train where they put a rough surface to allow better traction! Anyway that is my guess!
    Oooooh lala, honeymoon!

    A rhino’s face flanel ?

    Glad you enjoyed your trip. Since you’ve been gone the weathers gone right orf.

    Great to see you back, Cindy, and eager to see what you bring us from your travels! The photo? As it looks far more worn on the right than the left, my vote’s for a metal tread.

  9. Ok so I’m very late but there is bugger all signal where we are. Looks like diamond/checker plate but given the recent travels I’d say it’s probably part of a manhole cover from somewhere ancient and beautiful. Not looked at anyone else’s answers as I can’t get them up. Hope you had a fab time and will chat next week.

  10. Good morning everyone :). You have all grown very smart during my absence because you all figured out that it was some type of non-slip metal surface, and anyone who said it was a metal step/stair tread was 100% correct. However, nobody guessed where the step was. It was actually one of the 660 steps that we climbed up in the Eiffel Tower. Yes, I said climbed!!! It was one of our goals on this trip, and we did it! We walked all the way up to the second level, where you then have no choice but to take the lift up the final bit. What a rush!! We walked and climbed more on this trip than I have ever done in my entire life, and I’m very proud of myself!

    So for the last few weeks you literally died of exhaustion at the end of the day? Sheesh. I had no idea you were zombie, Cindy. 😉

    Good to hear your trip was enjoyed. It would have been better if you would have taken LouAnn and I with you to sample all the chocolates just in case they might be something you didn’t like. *rolls eyes*

    Sounds like you had an amazing time!
