scavenger hunt finds at the games

when I saw Rinda’s scavenger hunt list for this year I was pretty sure I would find a parade and a mascot while I was involved in the Commonwealth games and I was right

while a spectator I also found a photo bomb

and I had plenty of options for a group of tourists but I went with an unusual and unexpected one.  Every time I walked along the public area outside the transport hub for the athletes’ village I noticed a small group of men with big cameras.  My first thought was that they were trying to capture famous athletes who were travelling in the buses.  But no – they were interested in the buses from other cities.  In order to find enough buses and drivers they had been brought in from across the country including London, Belfast, Manchester and the Highlands – and the bus spotters were there to record them.
