It's July 31st, and time for the July edition of Rinda's Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt.
The first item on the list was a "wild heart-a naturally occurring heart." I wasn't sure where I'd find that one, but one morning while I was sitting on our patio, I looked up and there they were on our Morning Glory.
Matt and Betsy have a fabulous deck (#7), and while Sarah, Adam, and Caleb were here we spent a lot of time there. That week turned out to be a good one for scavenger hunt photos.
It was also the site of another family gathering, # 11.
The three grandchildren had lots of fun at a local splash park one day, so here are a couple entries for #9, "someone playing in or around water." (Think I'll have some more for this one when we get back from our summer vacation.)
One night we went out to eat, and Adam and I shared a carafe of sangria, #29, "a seasonal cocktail or drink."( It was so good, I made a pitcher of it this weekend when we entertained our bridge group.)
One absolute "must" on Sarah's list when she visits is a trip to Abbott's Ice Cream. Their chocolate almond soft ice cream is terrific. We decided to go to the Abbott's on Lake Ontario so Caleb could ride the carousel there (last year's item), and we walked along the beach afterwards, and I got #2, "a footprint."
The reason that Sarah, Adam, and Caleb chose the first week of July to visit, was the arrival of Madelyn Tyler. Although I posted this photo earlier, I didn't mark it as a scavenger hunt item. It's one of the alternates, "baby."
The next two photos were taken at our local grocery store: #17 "fresh produce," and #18 " a cart full of groceries." This was my shopping trip before our family party early in July so it's the fullest cart of the summer, I'm sure.
I found #9 on a walk along the cottage road at Honeoye Lake a week or so ago, "a camper." I'm hoping to find a cuter one along the way, but at least I've got it covered.
Earlier this month I posted #13, "the moon," as a SNAP meme, #12 , "a window" and the other alternate, "a lighthouse," as part of my Memorandum Monday post. That leaves me with seven items left to find in August and early September. Doable, I hope!
