Scavenger hunt finds

I’m pleased with my first month’s haul of Rinda’s scavenger hunt finds – mostly due to keeping my eyes open and remembering most of the items on the list

5-architectural-column

my first find was architectural columns – here on the side of the art gallery in the middle of Edinburgh, just where I get off the bus

10-university

a University also pretty easy – the nice old building in the background is one of the student union social places

13-merry-go-round

I saw a poster for a fairground visiting locally so wandered past to find a merry-go-round – this was an item that I had wondered where I would find it

11-cellular-tower

a cellular tower was local (rather blurry I know – I’m taking them on my phone and I haven’t mastered zooming).  I’ve become aware of how many of these there are since I got the list and started looking – I like how the scavenger hunt always makes me pay attention to my every day surroundings.

9-tent-b

this is the tent I was working in for Moonwalk and when I read this item on the list I knew this would be my best opportunity

7-turtle

I had no idea where I would find a turtle without making a trip to the zoo so was delighted to see some in this colouring-in book

c-rocking-chair

and a wander around IKEA provided another that I had been unsure about – a rocking chair, obligingly modelled by my nephew.  This is a sub item but I’m not at all sure where I will find a flagpole with multiple flags or people playing a board game.

A solid start and plenty of interesting items to keep me looking – thanks Rinda for another fun list.

All great finds. I am envious of all the old world charm of British Columns. Your turtle find is very delightful, now who gets to colour her in? :)

You've made a good start on the hunt. I was wondering where to find a rocking chair but you've now given me a really big clue. Thanks!

No: I'm wondering about the flag pole too. I know where that wall is I think..close to visitor centre?

A great set of photos and a very creative find of a turtle.

Great start! Like you, I'm constantly on the lookout, and this weekend had family involved in the hunt as well.

Great columns! Lovely to see bits of Edinburgh again - dim memories of the uni students' union!!

Alison said...

What a great start...so far I have only one!xx

These are great finds - I especially like the architectural columns, great photo! I found 21 items last month, but used all the alternatives as I couldn't find three on the list . . . including the merry-go-round!

Great thinking on the turtle one! Those columns are gorgeous, wish we had old stuff like that. Now that's a tent!

Cathy Keller said...

Wonderful pictures. I will be working on getting the rest of the list together. You did so very well! Have a grand day! Cathy

Great job. Love those columns! I think I'm going to have to take a special trip for the merry-go-round.

I recognise those columns from our trip to Scotland last summer. Great finds so far. I think the flag pole may prove tricky!
