Friday Finds ~ Summer Scavenger Hunt 2013

I’m here with the first round up of shots taken for Rinda’s Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt. We made a start yesterday, my boy and me. We dragged my Mum along with us, for a morning of wandering at beautiful Stourhead. We even had some hazy sunshine. You might have almost believed it was Summer.

10. A bench that is outside.

There were plenty of these to be seen….

P1020807

….although very few were actually occupied.

13. A fence

A very simple wooden one (you’ll be pleased to see Jacky!) bordering the path down to the Spread Eagle Inn.

8. A tower.

I’d forgotten about these either side of the entrance to the house. We tend to stick to the gardens when we visit and don’t venture out across the road. I had another tower in mind, not far from this one, which we’ll go to another day.

We’ve made a few plans for the next four weeks, while my girl is still at school. I have a good idea where we’ll find most of them, but there are a couple that may prove tricky. To see the whole list and join in the fun, go visit Rinda.

I’ll be back tomorrow with Stampin’ Up Saturday. My give away is still open if you’d like to enter. Have a great weekend.

Lovely photos, it looks like you had a great day out. I'm hoping to start crossing things off the list next week x

Yep....that's what I call a fence....though I'm glad ours has a few more slats in it!!

Jess said...

Great photos. I might give this a try but how long it would last I don't know lol!

We used to go to stourhead a lot when I was little. We loved walking around the lake.

Very good catch for a one day outing :)

That is my favourite tower so far. I can just image a princess trapped up there in a fairy tale.

We don't have any towers like this in the U.S.A.! I love it.
Thanks for linking up today.

Great photos for the hunt! That first bench photo is my favorite - I'd love to take a stroll along that path & rest there!

Karen said...

The tower is a great find. It will be harder here to find something that nice. I love the bench that wraps around the tree.

I looked at several towers beside gateways and wondered if Rinda was thinking of such things when she put it on the list. It is one of the things I like best about English Architecture :)

I love that archway by the bench too, great for kids to play in. I agree with the others, that is a very Rapunzel-y tower too.

I was at Stourhead back in 1997, after it had been on my list for some years. We loved to stroll around the lake, it was so beautiful. A great place to go for the photo scavenger hunt!

Jennie said...

Oh I love that tower, what a lovely day out it must have been. J x

I love the greenery theme running thru all of your photos.. it was like going on a wonderful nature walk without leaving the house...

I feel as if I have been in a soft green tunnel! Beautiful photos ... I like the willow (?) structure too. You are away ahead in the collecting photo stakes!
