Photo Challenge #381

Once upon a time, lines formed every spring at the Parks & Recreation Department office. We headed there for beach stickers, “beach school” registration, and golf and tennis hand passes.

At one point, they added a mail option. Now we can do it online. (Meanwhile, beach stickers have become “emblems,” and “beach school” is “Camp Compo.” The world changes …)

Far fewer of us now need to visit Parks & Rec in person. That’s a shame. The folks are friendly, and the building — a throwback to its private club days, though renovated nicely a number of years ago — is different from most in Westport.

Outside sits a large planter. It was the subject of last week’s Photo Challenge. Kathie Bennewitz, Andrew Colabella and Valerie Szeto all knew exactly where it was: opposite the golf pro shop, near the 1st tee. (Click here to see.)

If we still had to line up for our recreational registrations, many more readers would have known where the planter is.

But think of all the time we save now.

This week’s Photo Challenge is below. Warning: It’s probably our toughest one yet.

If you know where in Westport you’d see this, click “Comments” below.

    If one has had a beach emblem before it was quicker to deal at the Pand R office as all info is already in the computer It took me less than 5 minutes with their great staff

  3. This is VERY tough. No, it’s not Longshore. Think way outside of the box.

  4. I thought it was the funeral parlor at Imperial & the Post Road. Your comment that it was very tough dissuaded me from.posting, But your outside the box comment has led me to give it a shot.😐

  6. John McCarthy is correct above — at least, it’s in Westport, Ireland. Not sure whose house it is, but it’s in County Mayo for sure. Well done sir!

  7. Bzzzzt: penalty on the play. 15 yard penalty for illegal use of location, plus a first down.

    • And what would that be in Gaelic football?

      Plus, last week I asked the question: “Where in Westport would you see this?” What’s wrong with that?

      • Gaelic football version? Of course, you’ve earned a Red Card Mister Woog. 😉

    I didn’t guess the answer. But it didn’t look like Westport because of all the tulips under the window. Deer love tulips, so they’d be long gone.
