Having nervously checked the weather forecast, we were confident that we would not get caught in any downpours (although we obviously packed an umbrella - you know, British weather and all that) We found our comfiest Converses, slapped on some suncream, and grabbed our cameras, ready for a day wandering around one of the UK's most vibrant and exciting cities.
We did have a major reason for visiting too: Shaun in the City. This summer, 70 giant sculptures of, you guessed it, Shaun the Sheep, are dotted around Bristol, and they each have a different design. The designs have been created by a huge range of famous artists and celebrities, all in aid of The Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children's Hospital Charity. Not only can you buy the merchandise to support this fantastic cause (download the Sheep Spotter app for just £1.50, and 'tap the app' each time you find a Shaun - very satisfying), but these sculptures will be auctioned off for charity later this year.
So let's see some of the Shauns!
