It must officially be the end of summer, as it is the time to share the photos that we have found for this year's scavenger hunt!
I shared the first of my finds here so I won't duplicate those. Are you ready to see what I've found?
I love the way they cleverly add mosaics into the cobble stones of the promenade along the beach in Praia da Luz

What's a chicken got to do with culture I hear you ask! In Portugal the rooster symbolises faith, good luck and justice through the story of the 'Old Cock of Barcelos'. A pilgrim is accused of stealing silver and sentenced to death. The judge is about to tuck into a meal of roasted cockerel and the pilgrim says that if he is innocent the cockerel will stand up on the plate and crow. The judge laughs - until the cockerel miraculously stands up and crows. The judge quickly reverses the decision to hang the pilgrim. Years later the pilgrim returned to Barcelos to carve a statue of the cockerel and to this day, these roosters are considered to be symbols of good luck and faith. This cockerel is situated in the alcove of a building in the town square of Lagos.

The epic summer make - talk about a labour of love! I still can't quite believe that I managed to make it.
21 Invokes a childhood memory
I made this little egg cosy when I was at primary school, probably about age 9 - it kept many an egg warm when I was growing up!

That's it! Every one ticked off. I can't wait to go blog hopping to see what everyone else found. Many thanks for Mary Lou for organising this again, and finding some fun and challenging subjects!
