So especially for our faithful friend from Ottawa these pictures I took in Richmond, September 2005.
Half hidden behind a tree, dead center of the image (clik to enlarge): The Wick again.
Jerry Hall lives 'across the street' all the way against the left edge of the image. The house is wrapped and scaffolded for maintenance.
I took this picture during a boat trip on the river (of course, barge owners do that). However, we weren't aware yet of where which house stood. We found out later after Googling.
On The Hill we discovered this exceptionally cute little Nissan. I don't know who drives it, but why don't you guess? Found it in front of what later turned out to be The House In Question.
As a bonus one of many Dutch barges on the Thames.
Oliekop? A Dutch word no doubt. Dictionary says: Nutty Professor. Do I need to go to Richmond to learn new words in my mother tongue?
A similar thing happened to me in France. A barge was called Butskop. I had no clue what that meant. The French owner explained to me that it was some kind of fish. The next time I saw the word was in the news about a whale on the Thames in London...
