Mystery Photo Contest: The Answer and the Winner

Mystery Photo Contest- the Answer and the Winner!

mystery photo

Earlier this month I asked you to tell me:

  1. where in San Mateo County CA is this structure located?
  2. what is on the top of it?
  3. and a bonus question this month: what is the structure's name?

This was difficult for those of you out of the area, but David Ames, Barbara Le Pine, and Jane Peters all knew at least one of the answers. (And Jane's answer that the bridge was named "Fred" cracked me up!)

However, the winning name drawn is that of Bev Wright, a newsletter reading in San Carlos. Bev knew that the bridge is part of Interstate 280, and is the Eugene A. Doran Memorial Bridge. Bev, congratulations! You've won a gift certificate to Mack's Smoked BBQ Restaurant in downtown San Carlos. Mack grew up right here in the White Oaks area, and now serves tasty BBQ to us. It's equally good on a drizzly winter day or mid-summer, so don't wait to give it a try.

--- Come for a visit; Stay for a lifetime!

The bridge isn't named Fred?  Why would Jane make that up?  It looks like a Fred to me.  Are sure that isn't it's name? 

Fun contest -- I enjoy following it even if I have no idea where or what it is until you post the answer.

Hello Indera -- This little contest is lots of fun -- when I delivered Bev's gift certificate today, she was so happily surprised. I made her feel special for the afternoon, and that's a nice thing! Thanks for stopping by.

Well Jane, you gave the bridge a new name. I'll always think Fred now when I see it. How's that for lasting glory?

I should start a contest like this on my facebook page or Twitter. What a great idea! I'm glad you found someone who knew the area well enough to recognize it. I'm not sure from underneath I would be able to recognize some of our bridges.
