That’s right, it’s another Sheep Trail! We elected to make Paddington our first stop to gather up a couple more of The Farmer’s Lost Sheep. This time Mini BB and I were joined by my Mum as I was determined to share the fun with as many people as possible. I like Paddington Station but hadn’t been for a long while so we were quite discombobulated by the changes. As well as Lambmark Larry, we saw a sculpture of Paddington Bear and a beautifully painted bench.
We then made our way to the magical wonderland that is Paddington Basin. Ok it’s not quite a magical wonderland but it did look quite pretty in the sun that day. I almost envied the people who worked nearby for having the option to eat lunch in such beautiful surroundings. In amongst it all was PADDINGTON Shaun near a water fountain.
We grabbed take away lunch in M&S and saw yet another Paddington statue. Apparently this is part of a Paddington trail put on a long time ago that I completely missed.
Then we headed back across London on a bus to take in some sights. We spotted a few Shauns from previous trails along the way. Shirley’s Trail is said to be a journey through the oldest part of the capital, visiting London’s most impressive arts and heritage landmarks. The bus took us to somewhere in the middle of Shirley’s Trail at St Paul’s Cathedral so we were going to have to go back on ourselves a bit. There were quite a few at St Paul’s!
We walked up to The Barbican to see The Guardian and Counting Sheep. Poor Mini BB wanted to have a nap on Counting Sheep but the promise of ice cream spurred her on somewhat.
It was back to St Paul’s then over the River Thames to see the last two sheep of the day.
Today’s reward: Pizza Express!
