The first month of the Scavenger Hunt organised by Rinda is finished. Are you joining in? It's such a fun little project to do. I've actually ticked quite a few off but there are a few that I know I can better photos for so this is not my final choice. But you know how you see something and think 'I'd better snap that, I may not get a better opportunity to tick that off the list'!
I managed to get quite a few on our recent trip to Edinburgh and I love that when I look back on these photos, it won't be just the Scavenger Hunt I think of but a happy time with friends with the added bonus of meeting up with our son!
Now I'm not totally happy with the parade! The Gumball 3000 rally was arriving in Edinburgh while we were there and the cars were all parading through the streets in preparation for the next leg of their journey. I am keeping my eyes out for a better interpretation of this one!
My daughter has her initial tattooed on the inside of her right wrist. We joke about it looking as if she doesn't know her left from her right and has to have an R for right tattoed on! I love my juggler - he is an Australian teacher who is working with our school for a few months. His previous job was in a circus so he was a natural with the juggling balls!
Now, I'm not happy with the first one here. It's a sign set into the paving outside the Scottish Parliament building, Holyrood House. And although it's not in plain English, I think it may be considered to be written in the Scottish dialiect rather than language. What do you think? Also my group of tourists is us with our friends while we were looking round the tourist spots in Edinburgh. We were hundreds of miles from home, surely that makes us tourists? Again, I think I will be looking to replace this one!
Now, the first one here annoys me so much I didn't really want to include it! I had real trouble finding any sign that showed you that you were entering our town and when I did, it wasn't exactly exciting. But more to the point (and please bear in mind that I work in a school. My boss is an ex-English teacher. They are red hot on spelling and punctuation in any letters or communication we send out to parents) the council have missed out our apostrophe! What?! I felt like taking a black paintbrush and putting in the missing punctuation between the p and the s.
So I feel like I am making good progress in the hunt, although I am confident that as the weeks go on, I will find better photos for some of them but this is the state of play at the end of the first month. How are you getting on? Which ones do you think you will struggle with?
