Life in the Slow Lane: A LITTLE BIT OF SCAVENGING......

Sunday 25 August 2013


...and it really IS a  LITTLE bit!


You might remember that on my last visit to mum and dad, Kirsty came up for an overnight; well, one of her favourite places to visit in her home town is the Country Park.She talked mum and I into going to the Cafe there for lunch and then we went into the 'Wildlife Centre'....I can't say I put up much of an argument as I knew I would capture SOMETHING  for this category!!.....and I managed to catch this little cutie!

# 5...A SUNSET

Coming back from Scotland , I was fortunate enough to have a window seat and thus be able to snap the sun setting, just as we approached Alicante!


There wasn't much Scavenging when I returned home, but I remembered to take a couple of photographs of the Theatre in our village....for all it is a small village we actually DO have one...some of the bigger villages in the vicinity don't have this facility....and although it only seats 200, it is much loved!

And that's my calculations I have six left to get...and I actually know where to find them..yes, even the windmill!....I just have to get out and take the time to take the photographs.

Once again, thanks to RINDA for providing us with this fun list:

1. Open air market
2. Theater for performing arts (not a movie theater)
3. City Hall, Capitol or other similar civic building
4. Airplane
5. A sunset
6. Someone or something taking a nap
7. A sign that is intentionally or unintentionally funny
8. A tower
9. A photo with someone or something that is clearly out of place or doesn't belong

10. A bench that is outside
11. An animal in a zoo, aquarium, nature preserve, etc.
12. A cloud in the shape of something (please specify what you see)
13. A fence
14. A stained glass object or a mosaic
15. A fire truck or police car

16. A windmill 
17. Candle(s)
18. Your local pub/bar, coffee house or tea shop
19. A fisherman
20. A dinosaur
21. A photograph of you with an artistic tool or craft supply (you cannot substitute for this item)
Bonus/substitute items. If you find any of the above items too difficult, feel free to substitute either (or both) of these items. You can substitute up to two items, but you cannot substitute Item #21:
A person wearing an outfit (or item of clothing) that symbolizes your country
A sundial

I hope you're all having a good weekend ...and maybe have even got some scavenging done!

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you

  10. I'm dropping in for a catch up, after a bit of an absence this summer. How cute is that meerkat? I came to a standstill with the hunt a few weeks ago, but have regained new enthusiasm for it this past week and snapped lots of things on the list. I must have a count up and see what is left.
