A weekend away..UPFEST 2016...

..Hi guys, I hope you are well. 

This past weekend we visited Bristol for the UPFEST - Urban Paint Festival - We had a lovely time & I did vlog the weekend, so if you head over to my YouTube channel you can see a snippet of what we got up to!! :)

I know street art & graffiti isn't to everyone's taste but Alan & I love it..the talent is truly amazing, so many incredible artists there! I think I've mentioned to you before that we collect art by Copyright & a few other 'urban' artists too. It was great to see a few of our favourite artists there working away doing what they do best - VERY INSPIRING!! 

As I was vlogging I didn't actually take as many photo's as I have done in previous years..but I still got a few, mainly with my iPhone..








The weather was very kind to us & it was great to wander around the harbourside..


we also visited Clifton suspension bridge again..





(sofie & her friend Jess who came along with us)

& the zoo..









 ..we also drove to a tiny place called Blaise Hamlet, it's a national trust owned area with these teeny tiny thatched roof cottages..very sweet...






& then, in complete contrast we drove to what I was say is a 'not so nice' part of Bristol to find this original work by Banksy..


so over all it was a very mixed weekend, but thoroughly enjoyable!!

I hope you had a great one whatever you got up to..
