Rinda's Round Up (The End of the Hunt)

I love Autumn. It's my favourite time of the year. But for Autumn to begin, summer must end: and with that Rinda's Summer Scavenger Hunt draws to a close. It's tempting to say that it's more fun every year; but that wouldn't be quite right..because it was a brilliant idea right from the start and summer just wouldn't be summer now, without a bit of scavenging.

Here are my round up photos. I didn't get quite finished, but I don't mind in the slightest. I've enjoyed every minute of the hunt and I loved seeing what a worldwide team of scavengers has discovered.


I have:
- a Fisherman: through a shop window in the Belgian seaside town of Blankenberg

- an outside market on a bright Sunday morning in Helsinki

- a police car, through the tour bus window, in Helsinki again

- a fence, again through a bus window, at the docks in St. Petersburg. A reminder of the city's recent past.

- and a theatre for the performing arts in Tallinn: for their Song Festival. I cropped this one so that I could keep the view of our cruise ship in the left.

Roll on next year, Rinda, and thank you!

The theatre looks like a very impressive building and your fisherman is so cute.

Your fisherman looks very... european. Does that make sense? Love the pictures, it has been an adventure hasn't it?

Becky said...

Great fisherman! I love that even though some people have finished and some haven't that everyone has enjoyed doing this, the taking part and the fun of searching for the items.

Ruth said...

Oh I love your fisherman photo! I only got about half finished. I'm hoping to do better next year because it really is so much fun and it gets us out and about more.

I do like the collage collection display it really suits the photos. Roll on next year.

Abi said...

I like your collection Sian. Lovely finds and sweet collage. I can't wait for next year too! Rinda always comes up with such an imaginative list.

I wish I knew how to do the photo collages as they look so impressive with the scavenger hunt photos xxx

Andy said...

What a find the fisherman photograph is. I really like how you have presented your photographs. I too hope rinda does another hunt next year. Andy

A lovely round up Sian, and the scavenger hunt it is the high light of my blogging summer...here's to next year.

My favorite in this series of photos is the fisherman. What an unlikely surprise! I've really enjoyed seeing everyone's "finds" this summer.

I think this is going to become a summer tradition for us too :)

Love that fisherman! But what on earth was he advertising? They look like perfume bottle boxes around him. Eau de fish?

Karen said...

I'm another fan of that fisherman, and that theater is gorgeous!

Your fisherman totally cracked me up!

Autumn is my favourite too. :) The scavenger hunt sounds like fun.

Some wonderful finds while you were on holiday. Sorry I haven't been commenting much on some of your lovely posts. I have been thinking of you now you are three. Hope your boy enjoying the excitement of starting University. x

Jo Murray said...

Well done...sounds like an interesting trip.

Jennie Hart said...

Great finds and I could almost hear your gasp or see your smile when you saw that fisherman! I hope to join in next year.

Louise said...

Great finds. I used to have an ornament fisherman like yours in my garden...x

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

It's true, summer wouldn't be summer without photo scavenging. You still managed to get some lovely shots, Sian.

Missus Wookie said...

Great photos! And I agree - the hunt is so much fun each year!

Very cool fisherman, and I agree, even those of us who didn't get them all had the fun of adding a little variety to our camera clicking.

Sandra said...

Gotta love that Fisherman :)

Jo said...

Great photos, I love the fisherman! x

Fishing for gifts perhaps?
I miss seeing the not so small one in these.
