August Scavenger Hunt

Time to Hunt and Scavenge - let's go!!


Two wonderful brown horses


Ten or so sunflowers


An old barn with many windows


Jahn and Ben at the NW Washington Fair



The lake is framed by trees


Well, you COULD eat this with chopsticks


We had a VW Bug like this - long long ago

This one has a pretty sun shade, I'd love to have this to transport me around town

Or this cute MG, how about you?  Want a ride?


These seagulls are having a grand time

I'm not sure what this loon is playing - but it looks like he's about to kick a soccer ball - ready, set,  KICK!


This horse looks like something out of a fantasy.  It as a very hot day and he was pacing up and down.

Our grandson Ben went to Adventure Quest Camp this summer - they made up scenarios and acted them out - earning points along the way for their conquests.  The leader was a charming young man who came dressed in a different costume every day.


Sharp beak on this heron, standing on a rock in the bay


Mt. Baker and Snow Geese, I think it makes a fine postcard!  Wouldn't you like to send one home when visiting Washington?

Whatever was that loon doing?? Is that where "loony" comes from? I drove a '68 VW bug for almost 20 years - loved it! - but it never had a visor (and always took 15-20 minutes before it got warm enough to defrost my hands on the steering wheel). And I love your postcard. That many snow geese must be quite a sight to behold.

That scavenger hunt looks like such fun. Do you get the list from somewhere? Do you look for things to take pictures of or do you check out your albums for ones that fit?

I enjoyed your photos, JoAnn! The light in your boats photo is spectacular! Poor hot horse in those coverings. Your grandson Ben must have had a great time at camp ~ It looks like it was fun! Take care!

Your first pic of the heron is fantastic and I love VW beetles, shame you don't see many these days.

A great set of photos!
My first car was a Beetle like that, I loved all the chrome on it.
