Scavenging photos (part 2)

See my previous post if you don't know what this is about! :)

So, where were we? Ah, yes...

8. A person dressed as an angel or a statue of an angel

I wasn't sure if I'd find this one, so I took this shot when I saw it as a kind of 'back up' - though it doesn't really fit the brief!

But over the week I did manage to spot a little girl in an angel t-shirt, a carved angel in a church in Pickering, and this little angel ornament in a Robin Hood's Bay gift shop.

9. A fountain

I didn't manage to see any water fountains all week - not even a drinking fountain - but I did spot a couple of chocolate fountains, one in Robin Hood's Bay and one in Whitby, and frankly I think they're worth bonus points just for the chocolate content, don't you? ;)

10. A horse

Almost the first thing I saw when we arrived at our holiday destination was a horse - we were staying in the Wheel House Cottage, and here is its name plate!

This handsome chap was outside a shop at Robin Hood's Bay.

These were both in Whitby - one in a gift shop, and one in an amusement arcade.

The toy shop in Pickering had several horses, but I think this was my favourite!

I did see a couple of real horses during the week, too, though - actually I saw several, but it wasn't always convenient to photograph them, on account of me being the driver along the narrow, twisty country lanes at the time.... But we saw one from the train window on the way back from Pickering, and one that appeared to be in someone's back garden in Fylingthorpe!

And then there was this one, in Whitby, which might well have become my favourite if I'd had the chance to visit it ;)

11. A shadow

At the start of the week we weren't at all sure how much sun we'd see, so I grabbed this shot while I had the chance!

As it turns out, we were really lucky with the weather and I even came home with a tan, so there were plenty of shadow opportunities after all - except that I forgot to take most of them, oops... Here's one of me with The Tomboy, and one of some interestingly shaped roof tiles, though!

12. A maze, labyrinth or trail

There were a few trails around the area - walking trails, mainly, such as the Cleveland Way and the Scarborough Heritage Trail.

I also realised, during our last evening away, that I was working on a Labyrinth puzzle in my Beyond Sudoku puzzle book :)

13. A library

Fortunately for me, Scarborough Library is quite central in the town, near the cafe where we had our lunch - I'd almost given up on finding a library by then :)

14. A person playing with a ball

Does a dog count as a person? The Tomboy would say so, for sure! This one was playing with a ball in the grounds of Whitby Abbey (there is a ball, honestly! It's near the left hand side of the photo, but you have to look closely!)

OK, if not, how about The Children playing table tennis?

Also spotted, a girl playing with a ball in a Fylingthorpe garden, and another dog chasing a ball on Scarborough beach...

...and several persons, playing with a cricket ball, also in Scarborough (though not, obviously, on the beach!)

Or there's my The Doctor, teeing off at a crazy golf course, Scarborough again :)

Phew, 2/3 of the way through! One more instalment to come!

Louise said...

Amy said...

I am sorry to say, but when Rinda had her link up, someone else had a chocolate fountain ... it was spectacular ... you would have to share the extra points with her!

Jimjams said...

Chocolate fountain counts for Weight Watchers Points for sure! Another fun post :D

Ladkyis said...

Love the selection of horses, well, I love all your pictures. We all seem to be doing quite well don't we?

Fiona@staring at the sea said...

I love the fact that you have backups in reserve, I found myself doing that with the shadow shot as well! Judging by the torrential rain that's here today, it was a very sensible plan x

Jane said...

love all the photos especially that little angel!

Cheri said...

I'm amazed at how many different ball-playing photos you captured in a week.

Beverly said...

You seem to have been finding plenty of each! My fav of this bunch is the horse in the backyard :)

Scrappi Sandi said...

Another great bunch of photo's...I really think we need to be visiting that part of the world in the near future! You're doing a great job for the Whitby (& surrounding area) Tourist Board! :D

Lisa-Jane said...

I'm sorry, I didn't even look past the chocolate fountain - gah! See you in class Mel x

alexa said...

A stellar collection here, Mel - you've completed several scavenger hunts all in one! Chocolate fountains - oh, and it's eleven at might and we have none in the house. What am I going to do till morning? :)

Maria Ontiveros said...

Brilliant! I think the doctor is the first golfer we've seen.
Your hobby horse reminds me of "horsie," who we havent seen in quite a while.

seaside holidays always seem to involve crazy golf - even if we don't play we spot the courses :)
