South-Eastern Scavenging

Having scoured the local neighbourhood for some photos for Rinda's Scavenger Hunt I was hoping for big things from a weekend away in the south-east of England earlier this month.  I did manage a couple of extra items, but they certainly weren't quite what I was expecting.

The weather was kind and we did lots of walking ... along the river ... where I spied a structure leading out from the shore into the water; a platform supported on pillars or girders, used as a landing stage for boats ... in other words ...

#1 - A pier
 ... a pier (not at all what I had in mind when I first read Rinda's list of items).  After lunch I played ball in the garden, but my playmate didn't oblige by taking any photos of me.  In fact she mostly wouldn't let me have the ball either.  So I took a photo of her while she was not giving me the ball back.

#3 - A Border {Collie}
who doesn't realise that playing fetch only works if you hand the ball back when you've fetched it!
My step-mother's puppy needs lots of exercise so we also had plenty of treks through the nearby heathlands where we mostly kept to the paths and trails.

We're planning another weekend away before the end of the hunting season (September 21st), somewhere I might be able to find a few of the remaining 13 items ... Eek not even half-way there yet :o(
If you too are hunting, how are you getting along with your finds?

That's a beautiful picture of your pier, and the puppy is sooo adorable!I have one photo going up with my story on Sunday (and then just have two left to find).

OH suggested a border collie but I went back to my original idea. I'm nearly there but have to be as it will probably fall by the wayside once term starts :0)
Great shots

Great finds! Good luck finding the rest :)

I'm done really, due to restricting myself to a single week, but I'd love to find a four leaf clover as a 'bonus' before the deadline...

I'm going to struggle with that pier, and have had to cheat a little with the Library! Boo doesn't get 'fetch' either :)

I have some I've not managed to process and post yet... can't actually remember how far I've got so will do a summary post I think.

Do love the Border Collies - and yes convincing playmates to give the ball back is hard with puppies or toddlers ;)

Its so funny seeing everyone's "treasure" and the sneaky ways they get different photos in but that pup is gorgeous!

haha! Love the photo of the dog and the ball. I struggled with the pier too, but just posted about my find. I have now completed the list. Yay! Good luck with the rest. You still have time to complete :)
