This weekend went by so quickly, I can't believe we are at Monday morning again.
We had a guest this weekend. G had invited his mum to come and stay.
As it was the heritage open days weekend and she had never been to the Tudor House museum before and it was one of the 4 events on in the city (poor show really Southampton for such a big city) we combined a little visit with tracking down the rhinos at this end of town which we hadn't seen yet.
The museum is just visible at the top of this photo along with Rosie the rhino.
She is definitely one of my favourites, so colourful.
I have been to the museum a couple of times but I don't recall seeing this ship figurehead before.
It dates from the 1800's and paint traces show she would originally have had a blue jacket and yellow shawl and hatband so she would have been dressed as a sailor from that period.
Another extremely colourful rhino, this one is outside the ruins of Holyrood Church. Love this photo, everyone is looking at the camera and looking happy!
This chap is stood on a mound looking out towards the Isle of Wight car ferry terminal.
It was very busy around this end of town at the weekend because the Southampton boat show had just started.
Another firm favourite. You can probably guess that this one is sponsored by the Dock board. We loved the rhinos being hoisted up by cranes.
There are still more to find and we are planning one more trip into town this weekend coming because the final day they will be on show is next Sunday.
