WOYWW - Summer Photo Scavenger Hunt 2015

Well with the family here all over the weekend & us out and about - enjoying the sunny weather ! - there was no crafting occurring ! We had a lovely weekend and it was so nice to spend time with them all.

Happily all our trips gave me lots of opportunities to search around for photos to fit the bill on this year's Summer Photo Scavenger Hunt !

So here are my scavenger finds so far !!

 No 1 - Bouquet of Flowers
My Lovely Dad bought me these flowers when he was staying with me

No 2 - An Ornate Door Locker
Not as ornate as I would have liked but the best I can do so far !
On the door of Newton House in Dinefwr Park, Llandeilo

No 3 - A Person Walking An Animal
I was at the Royal Welsh Show for work today - who could resist people taking these pigs for a walk around the show ground !

No 4 - People Eating Outside
This was us about to have pizza at Verdis on the promenade down on The Mumbles last Saturday

No 5 - Architectural Columns
These columns were swathed in roses and grape vines - very elegant !

No 6 - A Metal Bridge
I couldn't decide which of these 2 metal bridges I liked the best - so here they are the both of them - above is the toll bridge on the outskirts of Waterford in Ireland - and below the bridge to the old Lifeboat House on Mumbles Pier

No 7 - A Turtle

No real turtles wild here in the UK - so this as close as I am likely to get !

  9. Brilliant collection of photos. We don't have turtles living wild in the UK that I am aware of but we do have terrapins living wild in the park near us. The first time I saw them I couldn't believe my eyes as they were sat basking on a fallen tree. That was about five years ago and there were at least three of them the last time I saw them.
    Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x

  10. What a wonderful collection of photos, Ali - some of them are really quirky! I love the men walking the animals - we try and get to the Devon County Show every year (didn't make it this year as it was too soon post-op for me) and I love all the farmers in their white coats and their spotless scrubbed animals on show! Such fun. Thank you for your lovely comment and your good wishes for my chemo. Glad you like my realistic leather! It's a great technique and the stuff even feels like leather too!

    Happy WOYWW,
