My take on the tag games is that it's not an attempt to stump the other taggers, but to have some fun showing some cool things or spots, and give us all an excuse to go for a ride.

Some tags just bomb, despite the best intentions, others are not as common outside the locale of the person that posted the tag. Neptune/Poseidon statues don't appear to be very common. Cool tag, but perhaps a little too unique?

imho, the tag games are more fun when they move along. I try to make my tags relatively easy in the Winter, since not everyone can get out for a longer ride. (but I've had some stinkers too)

Does this count?

If this is given the ok, then it is the easiest tag I ever grabbed. I have a statue of Neptune in my backyard (doesn't everyone?) so I rolled my bike out of the garage and placed it as close as I could to the statue. Let me know.
Thanks YRU

In keeping withe the water theme.
A bridge going over a reservoir. Not a lake, river etc.. but a man-made reservoir.
Cheers

Nice grab. We have Venus in the front yard, but no Neptune.

Is that a bridge, or the reservoir dam with a road across the top? Not much difference for me, don't think I have one of those, but you never know until you go look.

So question. What's your definition of a reservoir? Would something like this be considered a reservoir? Link It's a man-made system of lakes...
According to Wikipedia it's a reservoir, but you also specified "not a lake"...

So I'll go with wikipedia's definition of reservoir. The object in the photo is this. If that doesn't work, just let me know and I'll take it down!

Tag Grab: Bridge over reservoir (bike is in the left bottom of the photo)





New tag: Hatchery (either fish or chicken)

Hmmmm we have a Fish Hatchery here. Not sure when I could grab it though. Working 24 hours tomorrow. I might be able to leave early since it's Sunday and grab it on the way to work.
