WOYWW #217 - Scavenger Hunt

Hi all - a bit late today as only just returned from a break away in Sunny Swansea, South Wales UK.
Obviously no crafting done but I did manage to come home with a few trinkets from my Mother's mega post-closing a wool shop down some years ago hoard!

I got a few reels of satin ribbon in rather patriotic colours (and purple velvet) a few reels of thread and a bag of delicious buttons! I tore the top off our chip box as I am sure I can find a way to scrap it when I eventually get around to the photos. We only took 934 between us over 5 days!

I did take the chance to find the last few elusive photos for the Summer Scavenger Hunt. There just had to be #19 a fishermen by the sea now didn't there? I got one with the Mumbles Pier in the background and from the other direction with Oystermouth Castle in the background. Spot the lads launching themselves off the steps into the sea at high tide too!! Scary.

On a trip out we happened upon a charity walk for prostate cancer with lots of men dressed in pink! I snapped one as we drove by and I think he'll do nicely for the, #09 A photo of someone or something that is clearly out of place or doesn't belong item don't you?

Then we drove up onto the common to the little provincial airport for the #04 Airplane photo. Got a jet and a little plane.

We even spotted a Red Kite above us too - a rare sight.


Here's a few others which have been waiting for this post too. Another contender for the #01 Open air Market taken in Sutton and #20 a dinosaur sitting outside "the Works" in Sutton too. Plus my son in his patriotic t-shirt for the bonus one of a person wearing an outfit (or item of clothing) that symbolised your country.











Oh and for the crafty aspect the card I made up with my cross stitch which not only is my surname initial but also my Mother's forename so I gave it to her as a thanks for having us these past few days.

So come join the fun at WOYWW hosted by Julia.

Great holiday, BJ. Some lovely goodies to play with - and more photos for the hunt. Mine are up on my website now - but so far have only got 8 of the 21. Thought I had a police car ablaze with blue flashing lights the other day - only to discover, when looking at it on the computer - it was an ambulance car!! oh well, if at first.... and all that!
Have a great week.

Loving the scavenger photos - you made it to Sutton town centre at last then, lol! You'll be surprised (not) to hear I have done no more of my cross stitch - or little else!

Love those scavenger hunt photos! It looks as if you had a great time! I'm late commenting today, as I had to go and collect my daughter from the airport. So glad to have her home safe and sound from her holiday in Cyprus. I love the card you did for your mum in cross stitch - so nice to see it made up. Julie Ann x #12

I always love reading your posts. They are so fun. I got a laugh out of the "chip" box, because I had NO idea what you were talking about, then realized they are probably what we call french fries.

You got some awesome photos. And I can tell you like to take pictures as much as I. The difference is, your camera is so much better.

PBS showed the final Endeavor on Sunday. I read that the show has been renewed for a second season, so I'm really looking forward to that.

Sorry I'm late getting here. Happy belated WOYWW from #2.

I had a look through your old posts. You have done well collecting so many. Your photos of Sutton remind me of Sutton Coldfield where I used to work.
