Once there was a family who took a holiday in Orlando. When they were there, they pulled out their Big Book Of Florida, which held everything they needed to know (and a lot more besides), and they flipped to the page headed Summertime Scavenger Hunt and they started to tick things off the list.
They found an urban street scene
which isn't quite what it seems: it's all a fake, at Universal Studios. The girl in the corner, ticking off the list? Had to keep her in because she coordinates.
A rack of postcards turned up eventually, in the book shop at Seuss Landing:
and then they didn't have to look too far to find a lamp post:
The next day they were up bright and early for a trip to Animal Kingdom. But it was hot and they weren't really feeling it, until suddenly a flock of parrots appeared above their heads. That little show was enough to persuade them to buy a cold drink and stay in the park and see what else there was to see, which turned out to be a lot.And parrots perched up high? Almost birds on a wire..
but they also managed to find a slightly different kind of juggler
before heading back to their apartment when the rain came on. A photo of me with something representing the season? It was always going to be my raincoat, but I thought I'd be posing for this one outside my own front door. Just goes to show what you can learn when you go on holiday. And oh look, I got photo bombed by a waterfall. No? You're sure? Alright, I'll keep looking....
With huge thanks again this year to Rinda for organising the hunt and adding an extra dimension to so many summers across the globe.
