Scavenger Hunt Mid Way Catch Up

We are now in August and this scavenger hunt is halfway through.
Would you believe there are apparently now nearly 70 of us taking part in this! There are some awesome pictures popping up all over the place.

So how are you doing? Having trouble achieving any of them?
I am more than halfway through which is encouraging, although only just at 12/21
I have decided to list each item and add a link to the post if competed.

  1. A pier
  2. A clothesline - 1st item I found
  3. A border 
  4. A roadside stall selling something
  5. A train
  6. A historical landmark
  7. A person playing a musical instrument 
  8. A person dressed as an angel or a statue of an angel - may have to start visiting churches and statues to find this one!
  9. A fountain
  10. A horse - would have thought I would have completed this one by now!
  11. A shadow
  12. A maze, labyrinth or trail
  13. A library
  14. Someone playing with a ball
  15. Someone dancing
  16. A bride
  17. A church, chapel, cathedral, mosque or temple
  18. A movie poster 
  19. An outdoor stairway
  20. A swing hanging from a tree (or hammock)
  21. A picture of you standing with something that symbolizes your nation
This has turned into a great way to pass my winter, as New Zealand is down under and it is winter time for us. The family have also enjoyed helping me find items to picture.
They are always asking me what is on the list? I put the list on my phone so I had it with me at all times to refer to when out somewhere, very helpful.

Easiest Items to Find

Clothesline - as there is one in my back garden
Library and fountain - as these are both in the same area downtown

Simple Ones I Should have Achieved by Now

A horse - I live in a huge farming area and there are horses everywhere you turn
A movie poster - we have at least 3 cinemas in Hamilton, just shows how often I don't go!

Hardest Items to Find

A bride - it is winter time so brides are not exactly popping out at present but come December January and they will be everywhere
A person dressed as an Angel or a statue - the Cathedral didn't have an angel so will have to keep looking

Item I Wish I Could get a Better Picture of

Historical landmark - have found a place that is on an historical heritage trail showing you places of history to the town, but it is nothing that is widely known around the world. Would like to have found something better to take a picture of, something more significant.

Item I May Not Achieve

I would say probably #8 person dressed as an angel or statue of an angel, but apart from that I should achieve them all. Hopefully no having to find a heart shaped stone or four leaf clover for me!

Well I look forward to visiting you to see all the wonderful fun you have been having this summer so far.
Remember if you are not part of this hunt then you can always still join in. You just have to take a picture of all the items lists before September 20, 2012. Also go over the Rinda's and let her know you are playing along.

Happy Hunting to You All

A perfect catch up post. I went ahead and opened the Linky early for you and Amy and others who are almost a day ahead of me!
If you aren't afraid of photographing cemeteries, there are often angel statues there.

Amy said...

I know what you mean about winter making some of the finds more difficult. I knew from the start that finding a bride was going to be really difficult - I thought the roadside stall would be hard too - but, you know, I came across three or four within the two week time frame.

I shall have to go and photograph an angel statue in a church cemetary if I can't find one on my travels....not an everyday thing round here either!!

Missus Wookie said...

Well done on finding so many. Fun seeing your library and fountain shots, I'm a fan of both.

Good luck with the rest.

Alison said...

Great catchup post Kathryn..our cemeteries are very different from yours(the coffins are in the walls)so there tends to be little statuary, but I must go have a look!

It's fun to see the hunt from a different seasonal perspective! And I always love to see photos of libraries all over the world

Elizabeth said...

What a neat fountain! Fortunate that both the fountain and the library are in the same area. Mine were miles apart!

Kirsti said...

The water fountains are brilliant and you have just reminded me on a very interesting library near where we live:0)...xx

furrypig said...

I think it is really interesting how some people's hard items are other people's easy items! No fountains for me but I have an angel on a cathedral so that was easy for me!

The Mann Fam said...

I think my hardest item to find will be the clothesline. I'm going to have to be liberal in my interpretation of that item. You have some great finds so far.

Wrightboysmum said...

Well done on getting half way there. It's the bride I'm struggling with as well.

Karen said...

I was lucky to go to two weddings last month, but the one holding me up is the maze. You have a great start on this! Love the first fountain. It reminds me a bit of one I saw in Chicago a few years ago.

You're doiing really well, I will struggle with a bride too!

You're doing really well! Think my difficult one will be the bride!

Yoli said...

Your easiest one is going to be my hardest one to find. I'm going to have to get creative. BTW, luv the poem posted when you leave a comment. Too funny!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Again my dear you just rock doing this!! I so am not that dedicated ... lol

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

It's so fun to see your photos! I have 8 items left and I'm going to have to do some serious searching for them, but the hunt is just so much fun! :o)
