Last Friday started off like any other work day. But by the end of the afternoon, Windward employees were cavorting in fountains, modeling retro clothing and playing with finger puppets — and we have the photos to prove it.

Yes, the 2014 Windward Scavenger Hunt gave employees numerous ways to humiliate themselves in public have fun away from their desks. We all ran around our town/city/rural area, finding 20 items that had no relationship to work whatsoever. Even three remote employees and their families took part, which made for some interesting submissions. (Really — that’s what Lithuanian mailboxes look like?)

Here’s the list, accompanied by some of our favorite snapshots.

  1. License plate not from Colorado
