Life in the Slow Lane: Summer Scavenger Hunt

Saturday 9 July 2011

Summer Scavenger Hunt

Like quite a few of you, I am joining in  with  Rinda's Scavenger Hunt this summer. 

I haven't quite decided whether to make a mini-book (like Jacky ), or whether to make a page which will look something like Helena's.

I shall continue mulling the quandary over in my tiny, little mind,and let you know when the momentous decision has been made!

In the meantime, here is the list of items I am looking out for:

1. A picture of your entire team (or self-portrait if you're playing alone)
2. A Museum
3. A camp fire (or fire in a fireplace)
4. A protest, town hall meeting or other political activity
5. A hand lettered sign selling something or giving directions
6. A person dressed as a pirate
7. A decorated mailbox (Non-U.S. participants may substitute a piece of garden sculpture)
8. Your country's flag
9. A festival or fair
10. A wooden bridge
11. A forest
12. A unicycle
13. A cemetery of historical significance or with an interesting story.
14. A castle
15. Graffiti art (not just graffiti and not just a wall mural)
16. A building made of metal or glass
17. Rain
18. A person sketching or painting outside their house
19. A beehive or an ant farm with live ants
20. A handmade roadside memorial or shrine.
21. A rooster

And here is what I have , so far

a roadside shrine on the way out of our village

fiesta (festival) of St.John the Baptist

our local museum ( where they have examples of local craftmanship)

rain bouncing off our pool

the new Alicante Airport...all glass and metal

the rooster who parades (noisily) outside the papercraft class I attend

I shall be  'keeping my eyes peeled', for the rest of the summer...the self-portrait will be taken after I get my hair done next week, methinks ;)

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you

  1. fun to see what others have got for the items

  2. An interesting assortment of photos,Alison....think I may find the rooster a bit difficult.

  3. This looks like fun; I'll be interested to see how you document it when you're done searching.

  4. You've made an interesting start to your hunt. I've too much on my plte to have a go myself, but I'm enjoying other people's efforts.

  5. woohoo! go Allison! I love how these convey a sense of place.

  6. I love the rooster! He is strutting!! Hope your having some wonderful craft time:)

  7. Loving your captures here Alison! A very impressive airport for your little town :)

  8. Wow, what a fun "hunt" for the summer! I wish you well. I'm sort of on my own hunt...through packing boxes that is! LOL Hope you are having a great week. Oh and to answer your question... I took about 35 rolls of film on our husband was digital and went crazy, taking over 800! I don't think I'll ever get through that Spain album.


Thanks for leaving a comment....I love reading them all!
