Last few items for Scavenger Hunt 2013

Rinda set us another fabulous Summer Scavenger Hunt this year.  I have posted most of my photos already, but here are the last few:

A Fisherman.  Driving home this afternoon I noticed that the tide was high so parked my car to go and see if there were any fisherman.  Here’s one lonely chap!

Someone taking a nap.  Here’s Maurice on Highcliffe beach a couple of weeks ago.  We took a day trip to our favourite ever place!  It’s just south of the New Forest and where we’d like to retire to.  We can but dream!

An airplane.  Mum and I went to a garden last week, which is right next door to a gliding club.  There is a tiny glider in this picture, I promise!

A Windmill.  I wanted to do something a bit different so bought this child’s windmill at the garden centre.  It now sits cheerfully on my kitchen windowsill.

A sunset.  Not my best sunset photo!

Oh Linda I think your sunset photo is great - I see a pair of Angel wings in the clouds.

Great job Linda! I love seeing the photo of you at your machine, but I really, really love the atmosphere of your fisherman.
I just posted the link-up, so come on over and be the first one! Also add a comment with your number completed.

Lovely seeing your photos ...
If I were visiting that beach I would be very distracted by all of those lovely rocks :)
Great idea on the child's windmill too!

I like your snail cloud. I never found a cloud shape so I had to use one of Rinda's substitutes.

Great snaps. And I may have said this before, but I'm envious of those tall pretty windows where you craft. You did good on the hunt, congrats.

Kat said...

Loving all those photos, Linda - specially the mural! Amazing!

Karen said...

Great photos Linda. Well done for nearly photographing everything on the list. I didn't manage everything either. :-(

It was fun to see your photos, Linda, and I really love the one of you at your sewing machine in front of those beautiful windows!
