Scavenger Hunt Update

We took a trip to Southampton recently.  The real reason we went was to have a look at the Harley Davidson Electraglide motorbike – similar to what we will be riding in California in just over one month’s time.  It looks a bit like this.  It is a big beast!

Whilst in Southampton we visited the Sea City Museum, which has a great exhibit about Southampton’s story of the Titanic.  It follows several local residents who worked on the ship.  It was a really good exhibition, and we came away knowing far more about the sinking of the Titanic than we had known before!

But of course, on my day out, I was on the look out for scavenger hunt items:

Cloud in the shape of something?  How about this snail?

or this deer with a gigantic antler?

As we wandered around the back streets, we came across this magnificent mural:

Here’s a close up of the mosaic of the Titanic

Other scavenger hunt items I have captured recently include:

I don’t know why there is a pink flamingo on display, I’ll have to find out!

and some candles.  Nicholas bought me a candle back from his holiday and I was inspired to light all my candles on my mantelpiece:
