Hi JoAnn! I thoroughly enjoyed your photos. I have a kitkat clock too! Like you, I am curious about what is on the horse's front feet. It looks like some kind of rubber. Have a great day!

I always love seeing your closer view of Mt. Baker. And I love old tractors, too.

Inspiring interpretation of July's list! Love the "old" technology and especially the alarm clock! The mountain is breathtaking. The car reminded me of my family's... looked much the same! Thanks for the memory! What a fun visit! Susan

You really hit the jackpot on this scavenger hunt - well done! I loved the "technology" ones, in particular. ;-) Mt. Baker is quite stunning! I remember my grandma having one of those black cat clocks back in the early 1960s...I was totally mesmerized by it!

I love these scavenger hunts! So many interesting and beautiful photos - the tree roots around the rocks, the beaches, the breathtaking mountain, the 'technology'. My Mom had one of those black cat clocks - she had all kinds of clocks that she collected. Sweet photo of your grandson and the umbrella. xo

Some great interpretations again, particularly the old technology - that really made me smile! My absolute favourite though is that gorgeous car. x

Wow, great set of photos. I'm curious about the feet on that horse! The price for that bike seems a tad expensive to me :) Suzy x

Great photos, I love the technology ones!

I think those are called over reach boots on the horse. They stop them from damaging themselves if the back feet come too far forward when running and hit the front ones.

Great photos, especially the alarm clock! I was woken by my chickens this morning and had to get up and let them out before they disturbed everyone! And I don't even have a cockeral
