Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Our four week family reunion has come to an end.
We took the last family to the airport at 6:00am this morning.
What a grand time we all have had. 
A few nights ago we culled through all of our photos that we have accumulated, easily 2,000.
So today's Scavenger Hunt Sunday, surely will reflect what we have done these past weeks.
Besides if I work on this post, I can  delay the inevitable house cleaning!!!!

Ashley Sisk's list today includes: yellow, something that makes me smile, ancient or antique, splash and in the sun.


Yellow simply makes my heart sing. I am rather fudging on the rules; but a real gigantic, bouquet of flowers was the subject of this painting. I no longer have the photograph.

To Smile:

Two little monkeys, monkeying around. If they had slipped they would have landed in the water behind the marble bench.  Little girl monkey is holding beautiful YELLOW was either see their faces up close or the flowers!!!  


Downtown Charlotte has a wonderfully inspiring historic district. Many of the homes are refurbished and painted joyful colors.  Brings back so many memories (and the work) of living in a historic home!!


This magnificent pineapple (sign of hospitality) fountain is in Charleston. Water bursts from every tiny opening.  Children love to run around in the mote. They get quite the drenching. 

In the Sun:

Chasing Alligators!  We came across families of alligators: ten foot to three.
I asked my son-by-marriage, Daniel Brown, to take the alligator photos. 
He captured some fantastic pics....while I stood guard at a respectful distance!

That is all today for our Scavenger Hunt.
As I went to post on Ramblings and Photos, Ashley had placed a lovely photograph of her dear grandmother who has passed away this week. It is a beautiful visual memory of both of them. Which is the beauty and joy of photography.
My condolences and best wishes as they spend these days in memory of their grandmother.  


  1. Smile - hands down favorite shot. Totally needs to be framed. Love it.

  2. a 4-week family reunion? Holy schmoly. Looks like you had great fun-and you're not having to clean (yet).
    That fountain is fascinating and I totally applaud your son in marriage for taking those snaps. Yikes. :0

  3. Those kids look like they are having a blast. Beautiful home and even more beautiful pineapple fountain.

  4. Amazing pictures, especially pretty!

  5. That second shot is adorable - love that!

  6. The one that takes my breath away is Yellow. That's a beautiful painting, quite Van Gogh-ish. And that fountain, wow - there's a lot of splashing going on there. Glad you had such a great time with your family!


Thank you for taking your time to drop by and leave a note. Warmly, Sharon
