Scavenger Hunt Sunday - Strolling

Yes, the flowers are real!  I found them at a local grocery store.  They have a floral department and there were several bundles of these colorful blooms to choose from.  I chose to photograph them, but not purchase.
Few places offer a better view than the balcony on a cruise ship in Alaska.  The landscape is ever changing and always stunning.

Two of my favorite places to stroll.  There is a trail on either side of this creek.  It is a part of Compton Gardens in Bentonville, Arkansas.  That structure in the background is Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.  I love to stroll through the galleries there.  The trail connects downtown Bentonville to the museum.  A new exhibit opens in a couple of weeks.  I am already making plans to attend.
At least one evening on every cruise, dress for dinner requires that you wear a formal outfit.  Very few tuxes are seen, but your best "Sunday-go-to-meetin" clothes will work.

The decorative concrete masonry units (blocks) were very popular during the late 50's and mid-60's.  Some were made of clay, others in concrete.  I don't believe anyone manufactures them any longer, so if you're restoring a mid-century home and need some of these...good luck.
Well that's it for this week's Scavenger Hunt.  Stop by anytime this week for additonal posts.  Have a blessed day.


  1. Wow on these shots. Wow.

  2. Great selections for this week!!! I've seen those flowers, they are just not natural looking, are they?

  3. Outstanding view and stroll shots Driller and I love you and and the Mrs together. And who'd of thought about the decorative blocks being in short supply. They were everywhere at one time.

  4. View and Stroll - Wow they are both just gorgeous. I want to see that view someday.
    You both look very snazzy in your outfits on the cruise.
    Great shot of the blocks. They make for fun patterns.
    The flowers were colorful, you should have bought a bouquet for your lovely wife.
