Our weekend in Bristol. Part two.

On the Sunday, we explored the art scene.

I’m never quite sure what to make of Bristol. The town has a fair number of great independent shops, coffee houses and restaurants. It has a studenty/arty/lefty feel. And the art scene is great.

But it does feel small.

Our trips to the Arnolfini have been mixed in the past so I wasn’t sure what to expect this time. I loved Gost Log. Loved it. Could happily have played all day. And of course, I loved the link to the Westonbirt Arboretum (see A weekend in Bristol).

A walk on the docks. Always so much to see there.

We briefly popped into the M Shed. The other half got all excited when he saw the pirate ship from The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists! Okay. May be that’s a slight exaggeration. But it meant more to him than me (he saw the film).

We rounded off our ‘art’ afternoon with a visit to Spike Island. And I’ll confess, I was a little puzzled by Ivan Seal’s In Here Stands It. But that’s okay. It provided us with a great subject of conversation.
