The outside of the exhibition had a tree decorated with pots with fabric on them and pom-poms.
There was more colour outside in the gardens.
Thursday we went into Bristol City centre and the waterfront to visit M Shed. It is free and gives a lot of insight into the history, it's industries, about the communities and people. There is an additional exhibition (that's not free, but not expensive) to the Wallace and Gromit exhibition. The makers of the films, Aardman Animations, are based in Bristol and the exhibition shows how the ideas are formed from storyboard pictures to the final result. Their attention yo detail is fascinating and how much can be fitted into a scene of probably 24" wide and about 15" high. But there was the chance to have my photo taken with my new friends, courtesy of David
But a joint selfie didn't work out too well!
After all that excitement, further along the waterfront was the SS Great Britain. The first iron ship designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel
Yesterday we spent time with Sarah, mainly shopping and eating! A chance to see the city in the evening after eating at Jamie's Italian.
Today before leaving for home, David wanted to go to Cheltenham to visit the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway (GWR), which happened to have a Diesel engine gala day. A railway has to be done on our trips but then the American Museum was for me and he did also drive me to Poppy Patchwork shop in Westbury on Trym, so I don't mind a railway. Here's some of my iPhone pics
