And now for some more Shaun's from the Shaun in the City trail, which hubby and I were following on Friday. we spotted no fewer than 16 .... I shared some yesterday and there will be some more tomorrow. I am LOVING this first one today ... Justice Lamb!!

Justice Lamb, located on Queens Square

and right beside King of the Carnival

Our local landmark footbridge, what were they thinking?!?!?!

The harbourside area, full of galleries, cafes and eateries

Look out - SHARK!

Life Aquatic Shaun, position right outside of the @Bristol attraction

@Bristol ..... not sure what the silver ball's about .... love the whale

Not sure if you can tell from this pic but the waves are formed from recycled water bottles
VERY clever
Let me try again .... waves from water bottles and the water dripping from his tail? Well those are the bottle caps

Have a great Sunday

Very pretty and sparkly Christmas card Kathy ... thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers. Love the different Shaun's ... and the whale sculpture with the water bottles and caps is sheer genius! We had a similar thing in Vancouver a few years ago. We had Orca whales positioned throughout the city that were all painted differently. Wonderful works of art. Here's the link:

Another stunning Christmas card kathy, I too love this stamp, it's so sophisticated I think. I'm sure we both bought this stamp at the same time - Violettes possibly ?

More amazing Shauns and WOW how stunning is the whale, the waves and water droplets are so clever. Thanks again for sharing.
