Sunday Scavenger Hunt - and I finish!

Last weekend I went to collect my new glasses and remembered that I still need my photo of  City Hall, Capital or other similar civic building. As I was in Basildon town centre and the council offices are there I whipped out my phone and took an Instagram of them! They also have a nice tower next to them! The building houses the council offices, the library and also the Towngate Theatre where we have seen a couple of brilliant pantomimes.

Then, on my way home from work on Wednesday, I suddenly remembered the windmill, so took a quick detour off the A12 to go to Mountnessing. I had no idea where to park, so drove very slowly, annoying other drivers probably (!) until I found the village hall car park which was right next to the windmill. Again I didn't have my camera so took an Instagram on my phone. I am much happier with this windmill and this will be the one I go with!

And so I have all my finds! The only one I didn't get was one of the substitutes, 'A person wearing an outfit (or item of clothing) that symbolizes your country. However, I am happy with that and have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed joining in with Rinda's Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt for the first time. I hope that you do it again next year Rinda please! Now to get the photos printed and make up a mini album. Once that is done I will share it on here with you all. How have you done? Are you finished yet?

That is a superb windmill - and you were very dedicated to make the detour. Looking forward to seeing them all printed out ...

I agree, that is a superb looking windmill. The scavenger hunt was great fun, wasn't it? Well done of finding them all.

Congrats Becky! And thanks for joining in! I love your windmill and glad that the hunt spurred a trip for you. I still need a zoo animal and me with a craft tool, so I think I'll be able to finish.

GREAT JOB Becky! I really like that windmill! I'm all done, except for one of the bonus items, too. I'm still hoping to get it before the end of the hunt!

Great job! I'm finished too, though there are still the last two I'd like to find. I used one substitution.

I took a little detour earlier today myself and got the photo of the tower I needed. All I have left is a civic building and I know right where to find one. :o)

Great photos, Becky, and congratulations on finding all of them!

What a super looking windmill and that tower looks rather neat what I can see of it. Congrats on getting them all. I ended up not finishing. (: Oh well, hopefully there's next year.
