|We had second row seats with an excellent view. Just see FS in the background with the solar panel up.|
This morning we had a few hours to kill before our lunch arrangement with Dave and Heather at the Shakespear pub. Our bus tour guide of yesterday said the Cabot Tower was one of the 'must do's' in Bristol. Setting off in the pouring rain we climbed first Brandon Hill to the park and then the 106 steps up to the top of the tower. Views would have been brilliant if it hadn't been for the mizzle. Worth getting to the top though and an extra bonus for me on the way to the museum we found another Shaun. I have found about 40 of the 70 scattered around the city, so not a bad effort. Also seen as we left Bristol down the cut, a Gromit (last years) and an Alfie the gorilla (two years ago). Alfie was the famous Bristol Zoo Gorilla often paraded down the street by his keeper. He hated men with beards showing his disapproval by flinging dung at them. He now resides in the Bristol museum as one of the stuffed exhibits.
|Views from the top. Yesterday would have been better!!!! Nice and sunny.|
Having exhausted myself on the climb we made our way to the Bristol museam. Only having an hour to spend it was a whirlwind visit and the only photo taken (apart from a Shaun at the entrance) was another Banksy.

|Some sort of protest by Banksy's Well hung lover . Not at all sure what. Wasnt there yesterday!!!|
