Scavenger Hunt September, 2014


How I love September!
It is my favorite month of the year.
I can't wait to see everyone's September Scavenger Hunt Photos.



September Gold in Colorado's High Country




September's List

1.  S is for Scenery
Looking Toward Boreas Pass Road
Breckenridge, Colorado, USA

S is for the beautiful scenery that graces our state in September.

My Lucky Win!
Ameristar, Black Hawk, Colorado




But This is Better!  
An Afternoon Walk
Boreas Pass Road



Brewmaster Jason Ford Explains His Craft
Broken Compass Brewing
Airport Road, Breckenridge

Depending on the day, 2:00 p.m. can be a very different experience!



3.  Car Park
Parking Lot, Breckenridge


This Car Park in Breckenridge comes complete with a rainbow!   



4.   Hat




I had to scramble to come up with a hat!  
We rarely wear hats.

I was scouring my photos from my travels
earlier this year,
and look what I found!


Hat

Who is better known for hats than the Queen?
Sometimes I find the English quite perplexing.
This portrait was hung in a public washroom
along the River Thames!




5.  In the Mirror
Angel and I in the Mirror in July

Would she cooperate in September?
Nope, no purring kitty on the massage table ~
Angel was having more fun under the table
 or crawling behind my clothes!





          Can you see her head 
          directly below my camera?


             




Angel is my friend Kathi's
"massage associate,"
and she insists on spending time
with me every time I have a massage.



6.   Garden
Some Surviving Poppies in a High Country Rock Garden




7.   Lock
An Old Lock On An Old Door
Central City, Colorado

On An Old Mine Building


Given the condition of this building,
the lock is quite funny!





8.   Nails



An Old Building
Riddled with Nails


This is old in Colorado 
~ A Clerk/Recorder's Office Dated 1862



9.   Lamp
Lots of Little Lamps
at the Ameristar
Black Hawk



10.   Street Sign
Slow Down!
Construction at the Twin Tunnels on I-70

Okay ~ Technically these are highway signs.


Street Sign, London

Somehow street signs are more fun in England!



11.   Game 

Gracie's Favorite Game

Pay Attention to Me Please!
Gracie will paw you with increasing urgency,
until you relent and pet her.
She will play this game hour after hour.



12.  Outside Your Window
Black Hawk, Colorado

We stopped at a stop light,
and this was right outside my car window.



October's List:
O is for ?,  6 p.m.,  Morning,  Something you bought,  Light,  Close up,  
Favorite,  Lunch,  Childhood,  Your Sky,  Color,  Your shoes

Thanks to Jill (Greenthumb) 
and her Made with Love blog 
for setting up the scavenger hunt.

  1. haha when the pup wants attention she wants attention. Fun you get a kitty visitor with a massage too, make it interesting at the same time as getting all loosened up. A walk is better than money? hmmm not sure on that lol

    1. I love kitties, Pat! I can't have one, so I love seeing Angel, and she always comes running to see me. And can she purr! There's nothing wrong with money, but I sure do love walking in our beautiful fall mountains. Have a happy evening!

  2. Love that photo of the Queen, someone making a statement?
    Also, what about your weather? Did you get a really bad hail storm? Hope you are okay!

    1. Thanks, Kay! I think the public bathroom was built for the Queen's Jubilee! Too funny! We're fine. There has been hail all around us this summer, but so far we are okay ~ Knock on wood! Have a good one!

    1. Actually you heard Terry, Jim! I rarely get a royal flush, so when I do I am usually stunned into silence. Terry was jumping all over the place! Have a one!

    2. Wow! Google ate my comment, Jim! Good thing I came back! That was Terry you heard shrieking. On the rare occasion that I get a royal flush, I'm usually stunned into silence! LOL It was a fun moment! Now the $$$ are safely in the bank. Have a happy evening!

  20. Double rainbow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How opportune! I love the cat photo shoot- they just wont play ball, will they!?!?!
    English public toilets are SO unpredictable- they are the utter pits, or bizarre or amazing!x

    1. Hi Kezzie! It's always great to see you! I adore cats because they are such independent spirits! I'd have one, but Terry doesn't like them in our home. English public toilets are a hoot, and a sampled a number of them around London last spring. The first one I ran into in London was underground on one of the tube lines. I was dashing between trains and didn't have much time. That's when I discovered that you had to pay and I had the wrong English coins and not enough. But some kind person had left some on top of the coin box so I used them. Later my SIL told me that I had probably taken an attendant's tip! I still feel badly! I got very good at spotting Starbucks and MacDonalds because they usually have clean, free (but busy) bathrooms ~ travelers trick! I'm behind at visiting blogs, but I'm slowly catching up. Can't wait to see yours! Take care!
