2012 Scavenger hunt - fountains, trails and angels

I spent a lovely long weekend with my parents in Berkshire at the end of August and ticked off quite a few things on the list of photos for the scavenger hunt. However this post is dedicated to the three things above as I have many photos of each!

A walk round London produced many opportunities for fountains.






We were there to follow one of "the strolls". A trail to find Wenlock and Mandevilles (the mascots of the Olympic & Paralympic games). Whilst walking we followed the Jubilee Walkway and the Thames Path National Trail



And the stroll?  Well, we found all 16 mascots which are all here...Please click on the photo below for the full effect!


As you can see above Josh decided to copy the pose of most of the mascots!  Some had nobody near them,  whilst others like the one below were swamped with people fighting for a photo.  Every one was outside a tourist attraction or historic landmark which made the trail all the more interesting and we got talking to lots of other people who were doing the trail too!



The angel was prooving elusive but any more!

I found this one on the gates outside Guys hospital...


This one on St Paul's cathedral...



These were on the tower of the church housing the famous bow bells...



And this one in the churchyard my grandparents are buried in...



Back soon to load some more pics - well very soon as we only have until Friday to finish the hunt which Rinda has been hosting!
