the last of the scavenger hunt finds

definitely an autumnal feel around here as another fun summer scavenger hunt reaches the end date.

Each year there are several items that I set aside to find in August when Edinburgh is buzzing with the Fringe festival – this year juggler was an obvious and I was right

amidst all the tourist crowds I also found a painted bus

and a sign in languages other than English

ssh-6

Which left just two items on my list – bakery and sunrise.  I found one of them

ssh-9

As Julie noted, a sunrise should be easy as it happens everyday at a known time and place.  But in high summer that time is 4am here and I’m not sufficiently dedicated to the hunt to get out of bed and walk down to an horizon viewing spot at that time of night.  So I left the sunrise until September when sunrise is around 6.45.  But we have had morning fog daily for the past 10 days so no sunrise to see.

However I did find both of the substitute items

So a full 21 items for me this year and another summer nicely filled with keeping my eyes open for items and making a few trips to capture other items – thank you Rinda.

I like that painted bus. TSO has an ambition to do a Ghost Tour some time. Or the Black Museum. She likes gruesome..

That's quite the bus. I finally found a painted one, but nothing as elaborate as that!

Well done - found the juggler - glad we didn't see him juggling swords - might be a tad scary!

i love your juggler. I kept meaning to go down to Pier 39 where there are lots of street performers but never made it there all summer! Thanks for participating, and I expect you take a sunrise picture sometime. It is a nice experience to have.
