MACRO MYSTERY ANSWER Hootin' Anni's Scavenger Hunt


Yesterday I posted a fun indoor scavenger hunt.

It's a good challenge for this time of isolation.

I would love to see some of you try it.

Go to Hootin' Anni's link on my side bar to see the rules and what you need to find.

Here is my answer for the Macro Mystery # 10...





This Macro Mystery is something uncommon in my home.

The strange object found in our office is an original GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE RIVET.

When all the original rivets were replaced back in the 1950's,

They ( the originals) were dropped directly into San Francisco Bay.

Some fell onto Old Fort Point which is under the Bridge.

My hubby's Dad was able to retrieve some from the Fort.

Now we are the proud owners of a piece of San Francisco history.

And thanks to you....we have one in our possession!! What a special treasure. I better label it before I die, or the kids won't have a clue what it is! haha.

This is an amazing piece of history! I never would have guessed. It did look like some kind of nail, but too big and not shaped quite right.

That is very cool.

I had no idea what your mystery object was. At first I thought some kind of a nail or screw, but it was too flat on the end. Don't think I would have ever guessed it. When I saw your glass cup and saucer, I remembered that I have some of those in pink...
