I’ve been doing Ok with Rinda’s scavenger hunt. It’s been great fun trying to find all the subjects and I’ve even enlisted DH to help!
Here’s what I have so far:
This is the end of Worthing Pier this weekend. It was the International Birdman Competition. It’s a competition to see who can fly the furthest under human power. People make some sort of flying machine and launch themselves from this platform built at the end of the pier. There’s a prize of £10,000 for anyone who manages to travel 100metres. Sadly, most jump off and go straight down into the sea! The winner this year flew about 85 metres. The beach is crowded with spectators and it brings a real sense of fun to the town.
Not a brilliant photo, might try again next time I hang some washing out!
3 A BORDER
Here’s my new flower border where our big pine tree used to be.
5 A TRAIN
This is the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch railway at Dungeness. See this post for more photos of our day out to Dungeness.
6 HISTORICAL LANDMARK
Another photo for our day out to Dungeness. These are the ‘acoustic mirrors’. They are giant concrete structures built in the late 1920s with the aim of magnifying the engine noise of enemy aircraft flying in from across the English Channel. They were not particularly efficient and were superseded quickly by radar.
7 PERSON PLAYING A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT
Photo of Morris dancers at Parham House, Storrington. Mum and I visited the garden show there, and these dancers were in the courtyard. The man in front is playing an accordian.
8 STATUE OF AN ANGEL
I made this clay model when I was about 12! She’s a rather ugly angel don’t you think!
10 A HORSE (see my previous post from the Natural History Museum)
11 A SHADOW
Maurice and me on a dog walk.
12 A TRAIL
Maurice and Merlin on a walk up to Cissbury Ring on the South Downs just north of our town
13 A LIBRARY
Hope this counts! This is my library. Just recently I have organised the books by colour, and I love it!
14 PERSON PLAYING WITH A BALL
Of course this one had to come from our day out to the Olympics! Here’s the volleyball match between USA and Serbia. That’s the USA team jumping high to block the ball.
15 SOMEONE DANCING
Another picture of the Morris dancers at Parham. Love their flower garlands!
So now I have to get:
A roadside stall selling something, a fountain, a bride, a church, a movie poster, an outdoor stairway, and a swing hanging from a tree. I’ve already got some ideas, so come back soon to see what I’ve found.
