Esther has been on a trip to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. It’s a lovely park full of sculptures, and some indoor galleries. First stop, of course, was the cafe for a light snack.
One of the things she especially wanted to see was the animals made by Mister Finch. They were all marvellous, in their fancy jackets. Quite mystical.
The woodland theme even carried through to the plinths the animals sat on. It was all beautifully done and Esther felt quite inspired.
By now, it was lunchtime, so before they set out for a walk, it was back to the restaurant. The humans were very pleased to find that there was a gluten and dairy free option for Mr Human.
And then, off they all went to walk round the park. There were lots of interesting sculptures, and some marvellous trees. Esther quite agrees about art in school.
She decided to have a go at a little sketching and the giant rabbit lady seemed ideal. Mr Human kindly provided a platform to work on.
Esther spotted one thing Fury would have enjoyed – not so much the sculpture taking shape, but the cranes lifting the giant stones into place!
And Bernard would like this little grotto, the entrance to a well.
Well, after all that walking, there was just time for a small snack before it was time to go home. Esther couldn’t help thinking that the colours of the meringue looked a bit like Matilda!
