Travel Timehop #44: Southampton, 2013
When are we time-hopping to?
It was September 2015 and we had just come home from a three-week holiday that took us to Devon, the Lake District and Scotland. As the weather was lovely we decided to keep the summer vibe going with a day trip.
Where in the world?
I had heard there was a public art event going on not far down the road from us in Southampton, so we decided to take a look.
Go Rhinos! was a collection of 37 temporary art installations curated by Marwell Wildlife. Each of the sculptures was designed by a different local artist and could be found on a trail around the city. 250,000 people visited the trail over three months. At the end of the event the sculptures were auctioned off making £127,000 for charity.
We had great fun and must have covered a few miles around the city. I think if Tin Box Tot had been a bit older than six months she would have enjoyed searching for the Rhinos too. As it was she slept round most of the trail in her baby carrier.
