Anyway back to the rhino. He's part of the Great Big Rhino Project and you can get all the details and register online by following the link. Yep, it's one of those trails where you go around spotting sculptures. Just like the one with all those blooming Shaun the Sheeps in Bristol and London last year that rendered me particularly faint of heart by the end. This one, which raises money for endangered rhinos ,is a bit more manageable. There's forty two of them scattered around Torbay and Exeter including a wandering one called Louis who doesn't stay still. Now isn't that apt? The trail remains in place until October which gives my son of seeing all of them. Given that I was all sheeped out last year I've come up with a cunning plan to buy my own Louis a day pass for the bus and send him off to search for some of them without adult supervision. After all he's 13 now and there are details of how to get around the trail by bus in the information leaflet that I picked up at the library yesterday. After all, didn't I roam free like a big African animal by that age?
I have to say that I'm rather partial to the piece of public art that's turned up in my community's special space. It called 'Why the Caged Bird Sings', which is the title of Maya Angelou's biography. A bit of inspiration for my holiday reading perhaps?
