Yo Ho Ho! My Vacation in Scavenger Hunt Photographs

I just returned from a week's vacation in the Pacific Northwest, and I found lots of items for the Summer Photograph Scavenger Hunt. We started in Seattle, Washington. We stayed downtown across the street from the library (a building made of glass):
We also visited the famous Pike Place Market, where I found a sketch artist at work (drawing outside):
After a few days, we boarded a ferry to go to the San Juan Islands where we camped. We saw lots of forests:
We had a campfire every night, which was very nice after hiking and kayaking:
Of course, my best capture was a real pirate! I spied the buccaneer at the top of today's post while waiting for the ferry to take us back to the mainland.  He walked off the ferry, and I asked him if I could take his picture.  I'll post a few more pictures of our adventure later this week, but I wanted to get these scavenger hunt finds up. It makes me so happy to see so many scavenger hunt posts in blogland! Remember, there's still a month left. I only have three items left to find - the unicycle and bee hive will be the hard ones. Luckily, I know where lots of decorated mailboxes are located. How many items do you have left to find?

Oh very well captured I'm still struggling with a lot of the items but still looking.

I have very few and I'm feeling quite despondant about it ... not in a morose way of course, just wishing I could see a few more in my travels!

Great pirate - I have 3 to go but am confident I will get one of them later today.

Let's just say you may have to use your imagination when you see my take on a few of them! I think it's making a lot of us seek out things we would otherwise have missed so it's been a great idea.
Still can't believe you found that pirate ...........!

Yep, I'm loving that pirate! Unicycle and a beehive are the tricky ones left for me

oh, you are so lucky to have spotted that pirate! i knew that would be a challenging one.

I need a few. Found an ant pile, but can not get a good picture of it. My next option is a bee hive, which is giving me a challenge as it is in a dark place. Love that pirate.

Still got about 5 to get - unicycle being the hardest - nearly hit my eldest son when he came home from a weekend camp and said 'Oh do you need a photo of a unicycle - there was a chap on one at the weekend' - he even had a camera with him!!!!

I have only posted 3, but have ideas for quite a few of the others. I was going to go and take a photo of our municipal workers strike today, but heard that it wasnt very peaceful yesterday, so decided to stay away. The castle, the unicycle and the bees are the ones that will be hard for me.
