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
