Summertime scavenger hunt–instalment 5

Its festival week locally – the bunting is up in the High Street and on several houses in the neighbourhood.

The big event at the start of the week is a ride out that starts by fording the river, goes out to a ruined tower on an old battlefield then comes back into town, gallops along the beach to the harbour, two and a half hours later. 

I watched and photographed the first bit – next year I’ll watch the beach section I think

On Friday I’ll watch the fancy dress parade along the main street and on Saturday the end of the final ride out as it walks down the high street – last year there were nearly 200 horses and riders.

I now have over half of the photos in the hunt list but only 3 more that I am confident of finding – all of the others will depend upon serendipity, remembering the missing items and having my camera with me at the right time.

Totally love this. It reminds me that there are so many different regional festivals celebrating what happens in different parts of the world - we have an ocean kayak festival for instance.

This is awesome, Helena. And I had totally forgotten that "festival or fair" was on the list. Yikes...I'd better do some searching.

I love your photos and the way you displayed them!

see you there! said...

The scavenger hunt sounds like so much fun. I like the way these line up in their frames.
