01/09/2014 The diary is taking a day off today to update all the photos from the scavenger hunt. Thankfully I think all is complete.

Maximum temperature today 23C. Dry.

1. A sign welcoming people to your home town (or a nearby town)
This was difficult as the towns and village here do not have welcome signs. The best I could come up with was this sign welcoming you to a walk down memory lane commemorating and dedicated to the memory of the World War 2 Resistance group members. I have though taken photos of the alternative  items if you do not like this!

2. A garden gnome

Take your pick.

3. Birds on a wire

4. A group of tourists
Tourists queuing at Seville Cathedral. 

5. A rack of post cards

6. An urban street scene

7. A rural landscape

8. A tattoo on a person

9. A bakery

10. A photo bomb (someone found lurking in the background of photo; the lurker may have intended to disrupt the picture or may be doing it unintentionally, but the background lurker is a surprise to the photographer)
What is that man doing on the cliff on the right!!
11. A horn

12. A mascot

Sphinx car mascot.
13. A sunrise

14. A parade

15. A juggler
Splat, squashed tomatoes!!!

16. A sign in a language other than English

17. A lamp post

18. A water fall

19. A public garden
and a lamp post!

20. A bus (not a car, truck, lorry, camper or RV) with a picture painted on its sides.

21. A photograph of you with something representing the season (recognizing that the season will be Winter for our friends in the southern hemisphere). Note: you may not use a substitute for this item.
If you find something on the list too difficult, you may substitute one of the following items for anything on the list, except for Item #21:

Alternative A: A kite, hot air balloon or blimp

Alternative B: A bird house

Take your pick.

Thanks Rinda this has been fun. if frustrating at times!!

    1. Hi Carmen, I am not sure which model this mascot came from, but Armstrong Siddeley was famous for its Sphinx mascots. In 1912, the cars used the slogan "As silent as the Sphinx" and started to sport a Sphinx as a bonnet ornament, a symbol that became synonymous with descendent companies. Diane
