At the end of July, I had just six items left for Rinda's Summer Scavenger Hunt. I was uncertain whether I would find all the rest or not, but indeed, I have.
#4 A group of tourists entering the Strong Museum of Play
#12 A mascot: I found this cutie at the RIT Book Store when I was there picking up some art supplies.
#13 A sunrise. This I knew I'd get. It was just a matter of getting up early enough to capture it. I talked Tracy into going up to Lake Ontario with me by offering to buy him breakfast afterwards. It was a beautiful morning.
And here's a side benefit of our early morning run: a Blue Heron catching his breakfast. (We also saw a river otter slink along the bank, but he was too fast for me to capture.)
#14 A parade (I love these guys!)
And a parade of ducks swam by the morning we were at the lake.
#15 A juggler. It turns out we have two friends who juggle. Rob happened to be at our house for a meeting, and cheerfully offered to juggle a few lemons for me. The fact that all three are not in the air is a photographer error. Should have set my camera for continuous shoot. Duh!
#20 A bus with a picture painted on its sides. We drove by this charter bus depot several days on the way to Conesus Lake in August before I realized they all had painted sides. Most of them had a small covered wagon painted on them. I could have lived with that, but as we drove out of the parking lot I spied this bus. Much more impressive.
I am, of course, always on the lookout for better subjects for the scavenger hunt. I recently found a "better" bakery, and who knows what might pop up before the Autumnal Equinox. You can see all my summer scavenger hunt photos (there are multiple versions of some) right here.
We're off to spend the day with friends who've rented a cottage on Owasco Lake. It's cool, but sunny, and another way to eek out the last of summer's pleasures. I'll link this up to Rinda's Summer Scavenger Hunt when I get home.
