Which way are we looking?

This quiz is a lot easier than the one I posted on Saturday. I suspect that several of my readers from the UK have sailed these waters and will get it right immediately.

Oops. That's a clue.

So the questions are...

1. What are we looking at?

2. Which way are we looking?

3. Where was the photo taken from?

4. What did Tillerwoman and I have for lunch?

5. Where is the nearest phone box that isn't a phone box?

1. Needles, Isle of Wight
2. East
3. Studland?
4. Crab sandwich?
5. No idea

Tillerman said...

Wow. My readers are so wise.

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Yes
4. Actually dressed crab - and mussels - on the quay in Swanage.
5. I have no idea either, but O Docker will probably work it out!

Well done. Five gold stars for JP.

OK, you brought it up.

It happens you're not more than a few hundred yards from a phone box that isn't a phone box.

BT has a map of all of them on the web page about their 'Adopt a Kiosk' program. There's a veritable exchange of them in Swanage (I'm assuming exchange is the correct collective term for British phone boxes).

I hope whoever thought of this program at BT got some extra clotted cream for his or her efforts - or whatever British telephone workers are rewarded for brilliant ideas.

It allows the phone company to appear a sensitive, feeling, community-aware utility-with-a-heart while saving a bundle in removal and disposal fees.

You are looking seaward.
You are looking the right way.
The photo was taken near a plant.
I don't have any idea about the lunch, but I hope that you and Mrs. Lord T enjoyed it.
the nearest phone box that isn't a phone box is 27 feet in front of me, but I don't know how you could know that.
