Photo Scavenger Hunt #9

I'm having a great time visiting my parents in CA and thoroughly enjoying the 70 degree weather (I'm sorry for Paul who is still in DC melting). Here's this weeks Photo Scavenger Hunt!

1. Music To My Ears

My parents have a Victrola that they inherited from my Great Grandmother. The coolest part is that the records are wrapped in newspaper from 1948. Makes for very interesting reading!

2. Hat

 When I got home I discovered that my mom had just washed all of my dad's baseball caps and they were laid out on the table just waiting to be photographed for this prompt. My dad has nearly 50 caps, you rarely see him without one on!

And then we were walking around downtown Monterey and I couldn't resist making my parents try out these crazy hats! I tried to talk my Dad into buying the crab hat, but it was a no go.

3. Clear

A beautifully clear hour or so in Monterey before the fog rolled back in and the typical Central Coast CA summer resumed.

4. Out of this World
A funky flower in my parents garden, it kind of looks like it could be from a different world!?
5. Sprinkles

Next weeks themes are:
  1. Walking Empty Streets
  2. Repeating Patterns
  3. Floor
  4. Then and Now
  5. Fingertips

Your parents are so cute. I love that they played along! And what do you mean your hat wearing father didn't want a crab on his head on the regular? haha.
