Shaun in the City #4 - Bristol

On Tuesday I drove to Bristol to start hunting the 70 Shaun sculptures on display there. It was a more challenging drive than I was expecting as the motorways were busy plus driving in an unfamiliar city plus my satnav falling off the windscreen just as I was merging onto the M32. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise as the maps on my satnav have not been updated for four years and it was far easier to follow the signs to the car park. Still, I was tired by the time I arrived, so I’m pleased I actually managed to complete a trail (the Old City Trail, allowing Keiki and me to bagsie 10 Shauns) at all!

Keiki, me and Bagpuss Shaun in the Cabot Circus shopping centre.

Bagpuss Shaun on his own.

Lily, outside Cabot Circus.

Knitwit, near the ruins of St Stephens Church.

Me being ridiculous in front of Knitwit.

Woolly Shaun. Difficult to photograph due to being in a very tight space, so I was happy I brought the wide angle lens.


Oh, is that me making a silly face again? Sorry/not sorry.

We found a clockwork dragon too.

Shaun on the Cob, with bonus random child. I stood there for several minutes and it was simply not possible to photograph this Shaun without a child on it!


Please Stand By.

Lamb Chop.

Maisy and friends, at the end of the trail outside the Royal Children’s Hospital.

Bonus photo: Keiki and me at lunch in Small Street Espresso, which was this tiny hipster joint with wooden benches and tables. I went in because the coffee smelt so good, and I’m glad I did because it turns out hipsters make amazing toasted sandwiches. Coconut-infused halloumi, Thai chilli mayo and rocket? YES PLS MOAR LIKE THIS

The aforementioned sandwich and a macchiato.
