and rushed us along there today
thinking it was the last day but it is,

There were 64 sculptures on display

We saw 62 out of the 64

for fear of scaring you off forever.
We really enjoyed our trail -
the sculptures were fantastic,
the weather stayed dry
and we had an ice cream :)
Tomorrow, we're all going to
the Paralympics, to see the
