Giant Lego trail at Slimbridge

Today, we spent a lovely morning on the trail of the amazing giant Lego figures at WWT Slimbridge.

We were lucky enough to be joined for the day by an fabulous local photographer.

The weather was not kind to us, but nonetheless we had a lovely day, as we always do at Slimbridge.

I think I have mentioned before that Lia is rather a big fan of ducks. This  makes Slimbridge her ideal day out.

For Libby, anywhere outdoors, especially where there is a park, is great fun.

Slimbridge is relatively local to us and it’s one of those places that we don’t go to nearly enough.

Every time we go, I decide we should go more often. I’m actually considering joining so that we go often enough to make the most of our membership.

Being joined by a photographer on a day out is always a treat, and Melanie Chadd has photographed us on several lovely days out.

Mel is a good friend of mine who we see regularly and very sadly, she will soon be moving away.

So for anyone living near to Perth in Scotland, keep a look out for a brilliant photographer heading your way!

In the meantime, we will be making the most of her friendship and her stunning photos for the next few months.

Here are some of my favourite photos from today.

I just love how natural the photos of the girls are.

I know they’re not looking their best, we repeatedly got caught in the rain and if I’m honest I think I probably forgot to brush Libby’s hair this morning.

But really, these are the kind of photos I will look back at and remember the girls as they are now, in their natural state enjoying a fun day out.

And I also have a question. If anybody can tell me how one goes about becoming a professional Lego animal and bird builder, please do let me know.

That’s a job I’d really rather like to apply for. I think I might have a couple of willing assistants as well.

    Hahaha – yeah, it’s a job I’d love too 😀
    We’re going to see these at Martin Mere later in the year – they are goreous! What I want to know is how they’ve strengthened the Flamingoes legs enough to hold that body!! 😀

    Oi, back of the queue, I want that job! What a wonderful trail and lovely photos. A shame your friend is moving away but what brilliant memories she’s saved for you 🙂 x

      Oooh no, that’s a job I’m willing to fight for Lisa 😉 Yes I’ll be gutted when Mel goes so we’re making the most of her this summer.x
