Still More Scavenger Hunt

#1 A pier.  Ocean City has two famous piers.  This is the private fishing pier. You have to be a member of their club to even get on it.
And this is the music pier.  Concerts, meetings, and other functions are held here.

#20 A swing hanging from a tree.
I was noticing on my walks around town that most of the folks around here use swing sets. Some of them are very elaborate. As in playground worthy. Not so many tree swings.  Then one day I walked on the other side of Seventh Street. Low and behold, not just one, but TWO tree swings in one back yard.  I took this photo from the public sidewalk. I felt like a total creeper... and noticed that cars driving by were slowing down to see what I was up to!  Yes, it is a sleepy little town and people do notice if you are behaving oddly.  After getting this shot, I found about four other tree swings over the next few days!

#13 A library.  Not exactly pretty to look at, but it's ours.  Sarah spent many hours volunteering here during high school.
#12 a trail.  This is the walking/biking trail near my home.  Frequently a part of my daily walks.

Tree swings are pretty hard to come by round here - this is a lovely example. And of course I'm always fascinated by libraries anywhere!

Great shots - I still haven't found a tree swing. I really like your trail shot!

That first pier shot is amazing - the sky is gorgeous! And I'm glad you found some proper tree swings (without being questioned about being a Peeping Tom). I love how these give us a sense of your daily life.
I need to go take some local pix this weekend of my missing items.

Now THAT is a pier! Awesome photo. I loved seeing all of these photos, Cheri. So nice to see what things look like where you live. Everything is so lush looking!

You are doing very well with your finds. I am having great trouble finding a swing, there do not seem to be many around this area. I like the two piers.

Those are fantastic photos. I love the pier and your trail looks so quiet, I'm sure it makes for a lovely walk. I hope I will have your luck finding the swing in the tree!
