October Contest: Pensieve Diving

For this month's contest we are going Pensieve diving! On each of the five Saturdays in October we will provide you with the description of one place and object pair as observed by our muggle friends. Your job will be to figure out both parts: the location and the item of focus. These ambiguous clues are all that our poor muggle friends could articulate and so are rather confusing. Here's an example of what we mean:

This location is a combination of one of Hagrid's favorite meal ingredients, a tennis racquet maker, and a topographic projection. If you need a hint Mr. Weasley can guide you along. Here you will find an object that had two uses in life. In both cases its sole purpose was to carry you on your way.

Answer (highlight to read): Stoatshead Hill, boot portkey

Oh, one more thing. We were able to identify the wizard whose memories were in the Pensive. You guessed it, Harry Potter. A location can be any place mentioned in J.K Rowling's books that Harry has been to personally. Accordingly, the object will have been mentioned in the books as being at that location.

Winners will receive one of three handcrafted wands donated by Wizard Wood Wands (changed monthly) and 50 MyLeaky points.

Full rules can be found here. Clues will be posted on Saturdays and answers to the clues should be e-mailed by the following Friday. Follow our Facebook page if you need reminders about when clues are posted! Good luck!

PotterAcumen, my apologies that we did not see this in time, but the “what” can be any object, living or not. It will be a definite tangible object, though. Nothing obscure like a soul.
LocomotorWibbly, the clues will be posted in the Contest Corner of the Leaky Lounge, here:
As it seems pretty stable at the moment, we’ll keep them to that link, but should the lounge crash or be having technical difficulties, we will post the clue on our facebook page, here:!/LeakyCauldronContests
As for how to enter, be sure to read the full rules at the link above in the announcement. Good luck!!!

I didn’t realise that the first one had been posted because I didn’t know where to look, is it too late to enter now? =(

Absolutely not too late to enter. There are still 4 clues left and if no one gets them all right, there’s still a possibility to win a wand. You can always enter at any time during the contest. Good luck!! We hope you enjoy it!
