Hawthorn’s September Scavenger Hunt.

I wondered if I would manage to complete this months challenge in time. I’m still on holiday in the Lake District and recently realised I had better get snapping away ! Apart from 3 photos, most of these pictures were taken on my camera phone , over the past few days.

1. Shut ~   This butterfly’s wings stayed resolutely shut when I took this photo at The Butterfly House in Williamson Park, Lancaster.

2. Copper ~ There’s a copper  tinge to the days here in the Lake District at the moment. Autumn has arrived! This picture was taken on the banks of Wast Water a couple of days ago. The bracken is copper coloured, the foilage is changing from green to reds and golds. 


3. Wrist ~  I would have loved to have worn a pretty bracelet for this prompt, but as I don’t have one here with me, here are my Wristbands from a visit to Muncaster Castle.

4. Quarter ~ At Quarter past six yesterday I was contemplating tucking into this bad boy! Needless to say , I only made a small dent in it, even with my humongous appetite! 

5. It starts with a C ~ Here are Hugo and I outside Muncaster Castle , which is a short drive from where we are staying.  The castle is supposedly haunted by the spirits of a  White Lady, a crying baby and a mischievous fool. Jeepers! 

6. Foam ~  Sorry this prompt was a bit of a disaster for me! I’m trying to convince you here, that the green moss on the rocks in Ravenglass,  feels like Foam when you touch it. A-hem! 

7.  Scarf ~ You can just about see I am wearing my Autumn coloured Scarf , which I bought in Fat Face last September.  I am looking for an abandoned Japanese Garden in woodland near Eskdale Green. It was so abandoned, it took ages to find it! 

8. Line ~ Yesterday I bagged my first Wainwright!  This is the view of Wastwater from the top of Buckbarrow. The skyline is dominated by the Western Fells. It was wonderful up there, but I don’t think I will become addicted to climbing mountains!

9. Nostalgic ~  The Art Deco Midland Hotel in Morecambe adds a touch of  Nostalgia to the Lancashire Coast.  I quite fancy staying here one day. 🙂

10.  My own Choice ~  Love this piccie of my nephew and niece eating their lunch in the back of our car, but can you see who is eyeing up their sarnies. 🙂

Thanks to Hawthorn for arranging the Scavenger Hunt. X

  1. Excellent selection Sharon, I love how folk interpret (and stretch the imagination!!) for some words – that to me is the best! I love the looking outside the box of your photos but my best is Hugo’s face as he eyes up a just out of reach sarnie! Thanks for joining in x

  2. I agree with Hawthorn about how well you have interpreted the words. I like to think Hugo might have been offered a few crumbs! My favourite is the Art Deco Hotel in Morecambe. I must look for it next time we drive there!

  3. Well done for getting up your first Wainwright. Buckbarrow is a tough climb, there are far easier ones to try before you stop. Have a go at Latrigg from the Gale Rd car park near keswick. Easy walk and views far outstripping the effort to get there

  4. I just can’t get my head around the scavenger hunt challenge, I don’t know why, I think my life is very boring, or maybe it’s my take on it?! I love your interpretations on the themes. Muncaster Castle looks good and well done on finding the hidden Japanese garden! Your comments on the Wainwrights made me smile. I guess you didn’t enjoy your walk? There are easier walks to do. I won’t be able to climb mountains like Scafell or Great Gable but just being outdoors is enough! Thanks for sharing a lovely post! x

    1. Sorry Christine I didn’t see your reply. The great thing about this Scavenger hunt is you can delve into your past for pictures. I try and use from the month gone but its not always possible. I was lucky I had a holiday to inspire me! Nothing else planned now this year…apart from 2 nights in Harrogate in November. Thats my bday present from Wil, so I’m pretty chuffed with that! I actually hate walking up hill. But I was really happy with the view from Buckbarrow. I will do another. Not long until your break away ? Xx

      1. No. A couple of weeks. It too is a birthday treat. Just looking foward to time away from work and the daily routine. I’ll see if I can join in with next months scavenger hunt. How’s Hugo’s paw? X

      2. Hes still limping but wanting to run everywhere. He’ll be fine , just needs to calm down and let it heal. Bet your counting the days until your getaway. 🙂 x

  5. I love the moss foam – very creative! I’ve found the list a challenge this month and almost didn’t join in, but I pulled it all together this evening. Looking forward to a new list now.

  6. Great photos and interpretations, love all your photos of the landscape around where you are staying. I love the hotel at Morecambe would be great to stay there or even just visit for morning coffee or afternoon tea:)

  7. Great set of photos, and thanks to you I have managed to join in this month, all but a bit of a rush. I have been to Wastwater diving in my younger days, very clear. You do get to go to some lovely places.
