Wednesday Word Search – Nat

Welcome to another Wednesday Word Search where I pick a word and share some of the images I find in an image search of the blog.

Awhile back I searched for ‘hat’ and ‘bat’ so started a theme of ‘?at’ words. Last week I searched for ‘mat’ so will continue on.

The word for tonight is: Nat

Mat should be interesting. The string ‘nat’ is in some interesting words.

What images will I find?

Pomegranate Jelly, Pomegranate, Seeds, Jelly, Cooking, CanningThe first image is of beautiful pomegranate halves taken while helping make some jelly.

SFO International Airport, San Francisco International AirportThe next image is of the International terminal at SFO. I usually see this sight many times a year, but it has now been almost two years since I have seen it.

I like this third image. It was taken in Turkey. The dog is an Anatolian Shepherd, and so is the man holding onto it by the collar.

ankerstein, nativity, christmas, krippe, stable, building blocksHere is a Nativity set that I built with Ankerstein.

Taking Flight, Set Vandable, Reading Sculpture, Livermore OutletsThis sculpture at the Livermore Outlets is titled Fight of Imagination.

I really like this sculpture about reading.

These images show that ‘nat’ is found in many different words. I could have shared many images for National or International.

Which is your favorite ‘nat’ picture?

What should I search for next? I will probably continue with the next ?at word. I took a quick look and I have some interesting images for ‘oat’ to choose from.
