Finally...I am making a dent in the holiday washing and ironing, although I don't think my washing machine will hold out much longer. I only flooded the utility room....I opened the washing machine door as the cycle finished... a huge wave of water flooded out. Not good. How I didn't notice that the water hadn't drained away I'll never know. #needtogotospecsavers.
How quickly we move on eh. Just a few days ago we were on the beach, relaxed, basking in the sun. Now I am back in the through's of domesticity.
Oh how I wish we back there, searching out our subjects for Rinda's Summer Scavenger hunt. I saved the list especially for our holiday and once again the hunt became a family affair.
My aim was to capture the whole list while we were away. Only I found that there are some things the Spanish just don't have!
1. A sign welcoming people to your home town (or a nearby town).
3. Birds on a wire
They did walk along a wire during the show - Hope this counts.
4. A group of tourists
The Sunday market full of tourists haggling for the best price.
5. A rack of post cards
6. An urban street scene
7. A rural landscape
8. A tattoo on a person
10. A photo bomb
Made us smile.
11. A horn (substituting for a birdhouse) I knew this was going to be a tough one to find so I am using my substitution. A strange place for a birdhouse..if this is indeed a birdhouse. It certainly looks like one, there was a bird lurking on the edge too.
12. A mascot
Our Be Happy Holiday Mascot.
13. A sunrise
You had to be up early if you wanted a brolly to shade you from the sun during the day.
14. A parade
A pool parade. It most certainly woke us from our afternoon snooze in the sun
15. A juggler
This is were I am to give credit to my darling husband for making the effort to walk across the courtyard one evening to take the photo while I supped my Pina Colada
16. A sign in a language other than English
17. A lamp post
Another credit to DH. I couldn't get the angle right so it was agreed that if I gave him the credit he would take the photo. I think he is trying to muscle in on my photo hunt.... don't you?
18. A water fall
19. A public garden
20. A bus with a picture painted on its sides.
We actually got on this bus (to Siam Park - the local Water Park) and can you believe it, I had to be prompted to take a photo. Someone paid more attention to the list than me!
21. A photograph of you with something representing the season.
Me, Summer and Ice-cream.....and him. See I wasn't kidding. I'm pretty certain he was muscling in on the Summer Scavenger Photo Hunt.
There are two items on the list that
I "we" were unable to find during our holiday. It seems the Spanish don't do Garden Gnomes and can you believe that we never came across a bakery.
Thanks Rinda for adding a little more fun to our summer holiday.
