Summer Scavenger Hunt

Hi Blog Friends, I've been collecting photos for Rinda's summer scavenger hunt, I'm still missing a few but here are the ones I have
1) A pier - our church outing this year was to Bournemouth and I took this photo from the cliff lift
2) A clothes line - I came home one day to find this cuddly cat sitting in my pantie girdle, my friend found it and knew I'd love it.
3) A border - One of the places we visited in Florida was Celebration and the flower borders had speaker in them playing soft gentle mood music
4) A roadside stand selling something - Our own sale at the church
5) A Train -Hogwarts Express in Universal world Florida
6) A historical landmark - Statue of Liberty made out of Lego in Legoland Florida
7) A person playing a musical instrument - My young friend with her beloved cello
8) A statue of an angel - This is one of the straw ones in the gardens in Bournemouth
1 - 8

 9) A fountain - It just had to be the strange sculpture in the centre of my home town Swindon
10) A horse - this one made out of horseshoes part of the strange displays in Ripley's Believe it or Not
11) A Shadow - Not very inspiring just the shadow of the trees in Old Town Florida
12) A Maze Labyrinth or trail - still to be found
13) A library - Central Library Swindon
14) A person playing ball - Still to be found
15) Someone dancing -  Minny, Goofy, Donald and the dancers in Disney World
16) A Bride - still to be found   
9 - 16

17) A church - This one is so sad, disuse, dilapidated but probably can't be pulled down because it is listed.
18) A Movie Poster - I read this at first as a moving poster but still it fits the bill this is one of the many moving advertising posters around Swindon and it is advertising a movie
19) An Outdoor stairway - More a ladder going up the outside of this factory cylindrical container
20) A Swing or hammock hanging from a tree -still to be found (I'm miffed with myself because there was one at our holiday villa but I didn't take a photo of it)

17 - 20

21) A picture of myself standing with something that symbolizes my nation - outside a shop with a display in the window depicting the union flag made up of lots of things that are very British

This is a really great idea for a project.
You have managed to get a lot of the photos Mary and they all look great. Good luck with finding the final few. :-)

Missus Wookie said...

Oh congratulations on finding so many - shame about the swing. I thought about how I only really see them on holiday too!

Amy said...

Mary I really like your self portrait, you have done so well to get that many photos!

Sian said...

Wow, you are nearly there! We're all very envious of the Hogwarts express here

You got quite a few of the hunt photos so far. Love the way you have them arranged into a collage.

Love the Hogwarts Express..and how lovely to find someone who has been to Celebration- most people I know who have been to Orlando have never heard of's one of my favourite places!

You're doing great, and so many of them are really fantastic (Hogwart's, statue of liberty, angel, and cello especially). Plus the clothes line is super funny. Thanks for playing along,

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

What a great collection of photos, Mary, and I love how you have placed them in a collage. Well done!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
