About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

Scavenger Hunt 2015 - part 8

My husband came home yesterday from his cycle ride and mentioned there was a "proper" Carousel up on Epsom Racecourse (as opposed to my playground Merry-go-rounds).

We braved the pouring rain on this UK Bank Holiday Monday to check it out, just in time for the end of month round up over on Rinda's blog.

I just had to include the Helter Skelter we saw on the way to the carousel.

#13 - A Merry-Go-Round or Carousel

We walked down a public footpath next to where the carousel was situated and got this tantalising shot through the railings also showing the Carousel Lorry and the farm animals for the "fun day".

In the pouring rain I think not!

Further down still I managed to get a complete shot of the carousel, aren't they colourful.

So still outstanding for me are:-

#15 - A Flag pole with at least three flags on it.
#A - People Eating Outside
#C - A Rocking Chair

However as I have got one of the substitutes I am essentially done.

Lucky you. I'd give anything to live within a hundred miles of a carousel. They are truly lovely and I've only seen them in California. Your photo is grand.

I'm still looking for someone playing games or cards and that pole. I would say you did a fantastic job. I'm so glad I've had a chance to see all your photos this year.

What a beautiful carousel!

Lady Ella said...

Well done on the carousel! Worth the energy I say! I finally found one but after all that I don't like my photos of it so haven't yet posted them! Ha ha!

Sue said...

Would it count if I sent you a photo of my rocking chair?:)

Hope you have had a good start to the week. Sue

Now that is what I call a real carousel. Great helter skelter too.

FAntastic! I still haven't gotten out to photograph one.
I'm thinking of a trip to the zoo for one.
