In the knowledge that Rinda's scavenger hunt finishes very soon, here's a quick round up of a few more of my finds:
#8 was my country's flag. I debated whether to count myself as English or UK for this one, then figured I'd just see what flags of either I could spot!
I guess I'm English then... ;)
And look, I'm in the shot!!
A festival or fair for #9? Ought to be easy enough, we get plenty of summer fairs in England!
The Tomboy won a coconut at a local garden centre fair
And The Boy won some toy cars at a local village fair!
For #10, I needed a wooden bridge. A trip to a big park near where we live gave me plenty of opportunities :)
The Tomboy came along to help
At this early stage I was still experimenting with showing off my photography skills!
We liked this painted wooden bridge
This one was rather plainer, but clearly wooden!
#11 was a forest.
The Children, The Mother and I took a picnic to a forest nearish where we live.
It is indeed quite possible that we made the trip at least partly so I could get the photos...
We also saw some forests of bamboo while we were away :)
#12, a unicycle, was challenging!
We cheekily photographed this sign in the library...
But we got lucky at the aforementioned village fair - sadly we didn't see the entertainer riding it, but we did see a real unicycle!
For #13 I was looking for a cemetary of historical significance or with an interesting story. Hence dragging my poor The Children to Hollywood Forever....
It felt a bit odd taking photos of graves, but it was interesting to see the resting places of Johnny Ramone and Mel Blanc (epitaph: That's All, Folks!)
I had no doubt I'd be able to get #14, a castle.
Sure enough, in July we had a family day out which included a visit to a castle!
And we saw this rather well-known castle in August...
This last, though, is actually a house which is on the same road as the house we rented in Pasadena!
Phew! 14 out of 14 - looking good so far.... But 7 more items on the list! Another update will follow :)
