More for 2016 Scavenger Hunt

21. A photograph of me with a calendar covering the time of the hunt. I have to say the expression on my face does not look happy. I wasn't cross or anything just concentrating on what Mr M was doing with my camera

7. A family gathering. Meeting with newly discovered cousins
Ela and Paul, on the right of the picture were completely unaware of our existence until about two months ago when Ela decided to research her great grandad and every google hit for his name had me as the author or source. She said that she stalked me for 72 hours and finally decided to contact me through the genealogy forum I belong to. I am so glad she did. This has brought quite a few more names onto our tree and has solved the mystery of her great grandad being "lost at sea"

20. Someone laughing. The Lord Admiral and Lady Bluefunnel. A day out with them is always an adventure and we are usually aching with laughter when we get home. This was only three quarters through the day 

4. A book or magazine read during 2016. I do like this author's way of telling a romping good tale

The result of a Scavenging Day out

17. Twins. Well there are two of them and they are identical

9. Someone playing with, in, or around water.
Mr M spotted a parking place and said
"Lot's of people fishing on the shoreline"
I looked and saw this lady throwing rocks into the water
Click and it was done

13. This is the best I think I will get of the moon.
Taken at 17.49 - that's quarter to six in the evening for us
normal people what don't do military/digital time

11. Fresh produce. For us East Pondians this means fresh fruit and veg.
These could not be fresher. Five minutes before they were still
 on the plants in my tiny garden
Getting into the swing of it now.

My Thanks to Rinda at Gallo Organico for organising this annual Photographic Scavenger Hunt and keeping Mr M on his toes searching for the items on the list

The Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt - 2016

16: a map showing a trip taken during the time period. 5 June to Costco
and beyond

18: Supermarket Trolley full of groceries. Wel, nearly full and all good stuff
Beetroot, lemons limes, cheese, melon, mushrooms ham and under
the ham is pork and ribeye steak - yum

6: a camper or caravan. I thought this was the M4 but it was the M5
and you have two for the price of one

19: I am allergic to alcohol so I steer clear of cocktails. My seasonal drink of choice is coffee

19: Mr M doesn't drink either so this is his newly discovered seasonal drink of choice
Lemon and Lime flavoured and absolutely delicious

10: A Bicycle. The A48 between Chepstow and Newport is usually full of cyclists
I had seven attempts to get a picture, yup seven and I had some very clear pics of kerbstones and hedges
This 40MPH photography is really hard sometimes
