Thursday’s Special: Pick a Word in January – Y4


Something eldritch this way came

coded – An oblique look at coded – you can’t see the codes in this picture

Cracking the codes in a freezing cold hut at Bletchley Park during WW2

lofty – Driving back throughout France well over a decade ago,  we came upon this place, with the church on the rock towering above us – the chapel of Saint Michel d’Aiguilhe at Le Puy en Velay. The sun was in front of us, so not the most successful image, but you get the idea.

Foolishly, I didn’t tag my images, so it has taken quite some sleuthing to find out where it is. I recall asking my late mother where it was, as I knew she had been in that area and can’t believe I didn’t tag it.

scintillating – those domes were truly gleaming in the sun

  1. The church on the rock is marvellous.

  2. Good choices to accompany some nice words, Sue. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Coded works so well! Is that in a museum somewhere, Sue? I can just imagine her cracking codes. 🙂 🙂

  4. Well done Sue – 4 out of the 5 words all in one go. I had been thinking about coded and never thought of Bletchley! I thought they did some very clever displays and you have caught this one perfectly.

  5. Such a treat from you, Sue! 🙂
