Scavenger Hunt Sunday

We've been on a long road trip this past week.  By the time it's over we will probably have driven 2600 miles.  We never take the direct route to anywhere but travel the back roads through interesting towns.  We have probably driven through your town or maybe even by your house this week if you live between the Northeast and the Midwest.

At least I was able to find some of the prompts for this week's hunt.

#1.  SUMMER -  Summer in the city -  fountains turned on and children cooling off.  When I was a kid the hydrants were turned on when it was very hot.

#2.  DANCE -         We stopped in Milwaukee for one of the Summer Festivals.  Lots of bands, entertainment and dancing.

#3.  HELPER -  Testing 1 - 2 - 3 -----      The sound technician is a huge help to the bands and makes them sound good.

4.  LAUGHTER -  The clowns purpose is to evoke laughter.  Delavan WI served as the winter quarters to circuses back in the late 1800's.  Several circus themed statues are displayed in the center of town.

5.  WATER -  There's no place like home and our home is near the Atlantic Ocean.

Come on over to Scavenger Hunt Sunday for some fun.


  1. Wow, that's a long trip.
    Wonderful candid shots of the action but I've always liked clowns and I love that particular shot!
    Have a great Sunday!

  2. These are great! Love the water pics!

  3. Summer Town Celebrations and Festivals are something neat to experience. Safe travels as you find your way home, Stephanie.

  4. Lots of wonderful photos. I am loving that last shot. Makes me want to go to the ocean.

  5. Water complete with a couple paw prints. Nice. I like that water park too. Looks like fun. As for clowns, unless there's a big bunch of them coming out of a clown car, I think they're more creepy than fun. Oh, yes, and looks like you got a shot of the couple that actually looks good dancing.

  6. I like the water picture too. Lovely.

  7. Very enjoyable set. Summer in the city looks like fun. They plan to put splash pads into the local parks starting next summer.
    Dancing - Everyone seems to be enjoying themselves.
    I liked the Laughter shot. I've never understood why people find clowns creepy, I've always thought they were funny and silly.
    Love the foamy waves in your water shot.

  8. Great shots, love Dance!

  9. THe dancing looks like SUCH fun! Wish my husband were a dancing kind of guy...

  10. Great photos. I loved how you captured the dancing.
