Hello, ahoy, greetings.
Here's another update on my scavenger hunt - [for all the details on it hop over to Gallo Organico to visit Rinda who is mistress of the hunt!]
If you remember my post a week or so ago about the day the fountains stood still then the town square featuring in today's post will already be familiar to you.
I did wonder if I'd ever find a suitable photo for this next category and then I remembered that, alongside the [dry, non-fountainy] fountain ... there's this ...
12. A maze, labyrinth or trail:
Many a morning have I strolled across it on my way to my university job and it can be slightly treacherous on a wet or frosty day. [Walking across frozen plate steel I mean. Not the uni job!].
It's one of those kinds of trails that you do tend to follow along the shape of it as you walk, perhaps without even realising. Even though you could cut across the grass at any angle, you somehow get pulled along by the path as it's set out for you:
But no. Not a one. Which leaves Number 16. A bride still firmly on my list of photos still to find!
This next one however, was easier to cross off the list. Seeing how it's been in the town square for precisely 100 years, I knew where to go looking for it ...
13. A library:
And finally ... but unsurprisingly not on the list ...
When I spun around from taking the photos of the library this is what I saw:
Sir Samuel Alexander Sadler, one of the founders of the chemical industry in the area ... avidly watching the Olympics live on the big screen from his perfect vantage point.
It's like they built the screen there just for him!
Right then, I've only 4 more scavenger hunt photos to find now and I'm done!
And if I can find someone dancing while buying something from a roadside stand being served by a bride in a hammock ... then I'm golden!
