Last Sunday we went to Bristol to watch and film a #thisgirlcan flash mob.Only we missed it after faffing about at home, getting there half an hour late.Whenever I go to Bristol with the kids, we always hang out by the harbourside, on the M-Shed side.Having already crossed Pero’s bridge, where they recently had the fog display.We headed left past all the bars and restaurants towards the Amphitheatre and waterfront quay.Opposite you’ll see The M-Shed Bristol museum and The Matthew of Bristol, a replica of the English ship that discovered North America in 1497.
It wasn’t a particularly warm day and walking along the quay meant a chilly breeze coming off the water.We walked around to Gas works lane, passing the moored narrowboats.The path passed here was closed due to renovations, so we walked back thorough, heading towards Millenium Square.
As we went from the quay, we passed this huge Cheo and 3Dom street art on a wall.There are many artists who work in Bristol, including home-grown Banksy.Mural piece painted by Cheo and 3Dom on the hoardings covering some vacant units down at the harbourside development.
After walking through Millenium Square, we passed At-Bristol science educational centre and heading back over Pero’s Bridge.As it was still early, I decided to take the kids to The Arnolfini one of Europe’s leading centres for the contemporary arts.As I mentioned early on, there was a fog display over Pero’s bridge, inside the art centre was an fog exhibition , which was, um, different.Not knocking it all together, I’m going back to see the Bristol Artist’s Book Event .
And that’s what we got up to last weekend.Linking up to Fiona of Coombe Mill for Country Kids
