Rinda's Summertime Scavenger Hunt

I saw a post about the Rinda's scavenger hunt on UKs and just had to follow the link to see what it was all about.  The idea is that Rinda posts a list of 21 items for us to find and photograph before the autumn equinox on 23 September 2014 then post our photographs on our blogs or however else we share things these days.

This is the list:-

1. A sign welcoming people to your home town (or a nearby town)
2. A garden gnome
3. Birds on a wire
4. A group of tourists
5. A rack of post cards
6. An urban street scene
7. A rural landscape
8. A tattoo on a person
9. A bakery
10. A photo bomb (someone found lurking in the background of photo; the lurker may have intended to disrupt the picture or may be doing it unintentionally, but the background lurker is a surprise to the photographer)
11. A horn
12. A mascot
13. A sunrise
14. A parade
15. A juggler
16. A sign in a language other than English
17. A lamp post
18. A water fall
19. A public garden
20. A bus (not a car, truck, lorry, camper or RV) with a picture painted on its sides.
21. A photograph of you with something representing the season (recognizing that the season will be Winter for our friends in the southern hemisphere). Note: you may not use a substitute for this item.
If you find something on the list too difficult, you may substitute one of the following items for anything on the list, except for Item #21:
Alternative A: A kite, hot air balloon or blimp
Alternative B: A bird house

Yesterday we went out in Hattie (our camper van in case anyone is wondering) to a place near Stoke Bruerne on the canal.  It's a nice place to walk the dogs and sit and have a cup of tea or in our case, soupl and crusty rolls LOL!  I'd printed off the list so I was mindful of my surroundings when we took the dogs out for a stroll.

I was looking for a nice rural landscape (no. 7 on the list) and I took my first photos of the canal  

but decided that this next picture summed up rural more.

I also managed no. 3 on the list - birds (okay bird) on a wire!

Why don't you pop over to Rinda's blog and join in?

Great idea, I am so joining in. Love the photos, the canal & countryside looks idyllic & I should think the bird deserves a rest.
