Suspension Bridge & More Gromits

To make the most of this lovely weather we have been having here in the UK, we decided to tick off one of our to do's which is a picnic on Clifton Downs. I haven't been since I
was a child on a school trip, which is terrible since i have been living in the area for over 10 years now!

As Daddy was busy at lunch time we packed the picnic for tea, to enjoy after some sight seeing in the afternoon. And we just happened to be in a good Gromit spotting area! We found the 2 up on Durdham Downs. These have got to be our favourite's so far, with the boys liking the extra legs on 'It's Krackin, Gromit' & I thought 'Blossom' was beautiful.

We then headed down to Clifton Suspension Bridge. This was the first chance the boys have had to walk across the bridge, It has some really amazing views of Bristol.

We then headed down Sion Hill, to find another 2 Gromits. Both Gromits have great views of the bridge.

Once we had finished Gromit hunting we grabbed the picnic from the car & went to find some shade, at the little park to the side of the bridge. It made a real change to have a picnic for tea & worked really well in this hot weather.

After tea the boys had a good run around the park which includes this really cool rock slide, Daddy was worried for their safety so they were limited to the smaller slide. However it cant be too dangerous else the health & safety people would have shut it down years ago!

It was a lovely afternoon out & all it cost was 50p to cross the bridge, as the boys wanted to drive that way back home!

  1. Looks like you had a great day out - love the Grommits #CountryKids

  2. Nice to see pictures of my old neck of the woods. Looking forward to the 'Gromits' when we visit in the Summer. Popping over from Country Kids

  3. The Gromits are brilliant. It's like the bulls/cows from old.

    I remember my friend's car breaking down on the Clifton bridge, and we had to push if off - they were closing it behind us. Not a great experience of it!

  4. Love the Gromit spotting! I can see that the boys had a fab time and enjoyed the slide at the park, thanks for sharing on Country Kids.

  5. We have Gromit spotting on our summer list. Can't wait. Looks like you had a lovely day.

    1. They are so cute, my husband just doesn't get the attraction!

  6. Love the Gromits, hope some make it Edinburgh so I can see some when I visit next month. Thanks so much for joining in with he Outdoor Play Party.
