Without the initial letters they are palindromes?

Yes, that is almost it Deb, however if you take the first letter off and replace it somewhere else, what do you notice? †Very Happy

You're so nearly there Deb, that I'll give it to you anyway! Very Happy

It's just that if you take the first letter of each word and place it at the end of that word, it spells the same word backwards. †Very Happy

Over to you when you are ready.

Other than to say that it might have something to do with group watersport activities, I have no idea exactly what or where it is!

Itís a temporary structure - not really anything to do with watersports, Wendy.

OK then, after researching, I have discovered it is a floating sculpture on the River Serpentine, by the artist Christo.

It is called "The London Mastaba", is 20 metres high and made from 7506 barrels.

It represents Christo and his late wife's desire to make art free.

Have you seen it Deb? Very Happy

Thatís the one, Wendy. I saw it a few weeks ago. It was strangely appealing in the sunshine. I liked the reflections in the water.

Yes, it is a good photo.

You have probably come across this one before:

Arthur stands on one side of the river and his dog Rover sits on the other. Arthur calls Rover who crosses the river straight away without getting wet and without using a boat or a bridge. How did Rover do it?

Yes Jean, I thought it was because the river is dry, however that it is frozen is the correct answer!

Over to you when you are ready...... Very Happy
