May Scavenger Hunt

Thursday, 31 May 2012



I am turning into Lucy Lastminute when it comes to the scavenger hunt.  You'd think a month would be enough notice, wouldn't you, but I realised last night I only had 6 out of the 12 photos organised.  Cue the usual last minute scramble!


Thanks as always to Kathy for organising it.  Here are my efforts:




 Station:


I am fairly confident that I win at life for getting this photo.  Best station name EVER.  (Helpful translation - it means St Mary's church in the hollow of the white hazel near to the rapid whirlpool of Llantysilio of the red cave) 


Nose:


HaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhIloveOscarveryverymuch.  Don't you just want to dive into that photo and kiss his little nose?  No?  Just me?


Beverage:


My two non-alcoholic drinks of choice.  Glass of water, black coffee with half a sugar.




 Currency:


The average contents of my purse.  I hate carrying cash round with me so there are hardly ever any notes in there.




 Fragrance:


I wish this could be in smellovision, I really do.  They line the sides of a path at work and it smells amazing when you walk along it.




 Front page:


Of a 1937 newspaper on display at Plas Newydd.




 Good things:


Sunshine, Calippo, new minty coloured pumps, freckly knees.  All good things.


Historic:


A May Day feast, Tudor style. Definitely historic.


 Nine:


Walking to the pub whilst on a family camping trip in Anglesey last weekend.  There are nine people in this photo, honest there are.  You just can't quite see some of them properly.




 Do you see what I see?


It's the sea of course! And Holyhead Mountain, which I was forced to climb TWICE.  Right up to that very top bit!  On an exceedingly hot day too.




 Small packages:


Self and maman.  We are small people.  I am looking super quizzical in this photo for some odd reason.




 Yellow:


It was this eyeblindingly yellow in real life.  No idea what the plant is called, but it's jolly cheerful.

  10. A great selection! I can't believe you have seen the real station of that name! I know the song about it and I have a mug with it on it, but to see the actual station! IMPRESSIVE!!!! That cat's nose is totally adorable!
    (and though quizzical, I see a hint of a smile there! You look pretty!)

  11. Fantastic pictures, I'd kiss Oscars nose too. Those flowers look like "poached egg plant".

  15. Loved how you captured your cat with the nose - I've seen my cat do that one. Did I ever take a photo when he was so cute - no! I didn't think it got hot in the UK. Good photos. I had to do a last minute scramble of photos too.
