Scavenger Hunt

 a. Cool

Last October this helicopter could be hired to see Muskoka's beautiful fall colours from above. (A bit pricey for my taste; besides, I was happy to see the colour from the ground level. Less camera shake too.)

 b. media

The bad news is this newspaper office closed on October 30th. The good news is the company has found a new location and will continue to serve this community.

 c. something new

A new East Gwillimbury fire station opened this year. (Remember when the old fire station burned down?!)

 d. scarf

This is a well-behaved dog wearing a festive scarf.

e. Clock

We found this clock in the town of Parry Sound.

Nice tour on the places around you. The newspaper office and fire station has wonderful architecture... the dog also looks calm enough :)

Cranberry Morning said...

Oh what fun, a scavenger hunt! Love your selections. I'm sorry the newspaper is leaving that beautiful brick building. Pretty dog. Must be a Sheltie?

Margaret Adamson said...

Interesting looking clock an that is a cool dude of a dog sporting a scarf! Good that the newspaper is continuing and the fire station looks good. I woud love to ggo up in that helicopter but it probably would be too pricey for me as well! I will be posting tomorrow so hope you will look in on me. Have a good week and see you next week.

Very nice collection. I've not been in a helicopter and probably never will be. I'm all for less camera shake. Nice to know, too, that the newspaper will continue - we need more independent papers these days! I want one of those dogs!

The well-behaved dog wearing a festive scarf is my favourite. Have a happy week ahead!

The new fire station is quite impressive!

Your Scarf photo could have been as well the Cool photo. He's (or she's) cool. But your Cool photo is a spot on snap.

Great finds! How terrible that your fire station burned down, that isn't good is it. Good that you have a great new one though! xx

RedPat said...

Another great selection, EG! You guys never stay home!!

Got to love that dapper dog!

A Quiet Corner said...

You had me at "the scarf"...:)JP

Jenny said...

Lots of great photos this past week. I'm glad your local newspaper is still going. Ours in still hanging in, too. The donkey certainly seems to be telling you something! Lovely pictures of the rainbow over the lake.

Revrunner said...

Never having flown aboard a helicopter, I'm not sure how shaky a platform that might be.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Nice variety of shots, I love the dog.

edenhills said...

Wonderful collection for the scavenger hunt. It would be fun to do the helicopter ride, but I agree the photography would be much better from the ground. Lovely dog. How lucky it was wearing a scarf!

Rose said...

I like that clock...and I am with you on seeing the color from the ground. That is a beautiful dog...wish I could pet it. The building you posted for media looks interesting. Have you posted other views of it? That window up top looks familiar.

abrianna said...

That is a wonderful building the newspaper was housed in. What will happen to that? That is a pretty dog, trotting along with its fur blowing in the breeze.

Pietro and Cynthia said...

Very nice sequence of images, really enjoyable!

Cloudia said...
