Billy Minicozzi called to identify the mystery picture in the April 14 issue of the Enterprise Pilot as a guard rail by Shore Road, near a traffic light. While that was a good guess, it is not correct.
We got an email from Tony Pilla saying he couldn’t identify it. We looked at the photo and there are two, maybe three clues to ID the spot - so we are confident many of you know where the photo was taken.
It is a little strange looking photo – the flecks are the sun reflecting off the water.
And, Jack Scheich called after we went to press but correctly identified the photo of April 7, as in front of the Rite Aid Pharmacy after a snowstorm. He added, “I don’t know how many times I got out of the car and saw that giant pile of snow!”
Jack, who is the president of the Committee for the Beautification of East Norwich also had a wonderful comment about East Norwich. He said in an email:
“As most of you might know the yellow daffodils of prior year plantings [by the CBOEN] have been in bloom for a couple of weeks now and look great.
“The tulip leaves, showing off the Fall 2010 planting by the North Shore-East Norwich Rotary Club, have been visible for a few weeks as well, but waiting for the blooms has been torture.
“Well, I have good news for those of you that don’t go by the 106/25A corner on a regular basis. Two pink tulips have bloomed and there are a mess of them ready to bloom in the next day or so.
“All that water yesterday (Saturday April 16), coupled with the warm weather and sun expected today and tomorrow should put us over the top and see that “wooosh” Jackie has been waiting for.
“Enjoy the view and thank you to everyone who made it possible,” ended Jack.
As we headed for work on Monday, April 18, we saw the little pink heads showing on the 106 medians in East Norwich. For a small hamlet we really do our part to beautify the area. That puts it all together as we head toward the Easter holidays.
