Walking, Watching and Hunting, Scavenger that is...

Making Days Count 13



As a review, I have become involved in two blog related 'projects' for 2011, the first of which I heard of through Flighty's blog. This one is the Tree Year where I have decided to keep track of a 'Harry Lauder Walking Stick' tree, also known as Hazel Corkscrew (Harzel). My motivation, other than to learn and share more about this tree, is to encourage myself to go for a 40 minute walk daily or as often as possible. So far so good.

I learned of the other 'project' through Louise who mentioned the Photo Scavenger Hunt at Postcards for the PP site.

January's Scavenger Hunt List :

1. an abandoned building
2. a stained glass window
3. a goldfish
4. yarn
5. playground equipment
6. a library
7. a tombstone over 100 years old
8. your front door
9. a reflective surface ... not a mirror
10. something out of place
11. nature
12. bubbles

These two projects, along with other activities, have added something new for 2011.  Of course, there are always many other focuses, but it's fun looking at things from these perspectives.


  1. Two interesting projects to be involved in! I look forward to seeing your photos for the Scavenger Hunt.
    Thanks as always for the mention. Flighty xx

  2. Hi Flighty ~ I thought they were a good way to start off the new year, exercise and photography :) The photos are to be uploaded Jan 31. You're welcome!

  3. What a brilliant idea the Scavenger Hunt is. I will have to have a go at that and see if I can find them all in my village.
