Shaun in the City - London Edition

Mrs T-E, Junior and I visited one of my favourite London pubs for a "Swift Half" a couple of Fridays ago and as is the way with these things, we ended up walking back the Victoria Station. This almost  always seems to take us from Trafalgar Square, down The Mall and past Queenies Place.

As we crossed the road to Admiralty Arch, we spotted this fella on a traffic island.

At the top of The Mall on the right just passed Admiralty Arch we found another.
No. 2 - Me Llamo Shaun by Edgar Orlainefa
For those of you who don't recognise him, this is Shaun the Sheep of Wallace & Gromit fame. Basically there are 50 ewe-nique Shaun's dotted around London and each one has been designed by a different artist and given an appropriate name. They were placed in position on 28th March 2015 and will be herded up again on 31st May. There are also another 70 Shaun's that will be let lose in Bristol from 6th July to 31st August. At the end of the summer they are to be auctioned off for charity. To find out more please visit this website;


Therefore last Saturday Mrs. T-E and I, armed with a special map, camera and an iPhone app set off in search of the remaining 48 London Shaun's. 10 hours, 14 miles, two beers, a pulled pork bap, a coffee and biscuit later we had completed our quest in Green Park.

We are now considering taking this years summer camping trip near Bristol so we can track down the remain 70 Shaun's. We may need a guide Sherri; hint, hint.

Note: The numbers on the photos represent the order in which we discovered the Shauns and are not their official numbers given to them by the Shaun in the City organisers.
