Skywatch And More Day Trips

Another shot from Bolton Abbey earlier this week for Skywatch.  To see more skies from around the world please see Skywatch Friday.

Today we went for a little visit to a new gallery called The Hepworth after Barbara Hepworth.  It looks like a big bunker from the outside.

They have a walk of fame with stars (just two of them).

the great Henry Moore (love his work)

and of course Barbara Hepworth.

No photos of the inside as I wasn't sure which parts allowed photography and didn't want to get into trouble.

the favourite part for the boys was the really good playground outside. Art and sculpture isn't exactly the most interesting of things when you are little.

Lovely overcast skies behind two very different buildings this week! Galleries can take shape inside so many sorts of walls it is amazing what one finds behind them. Also Awesome that they have a play area!

Your first photo make me remember Scotland, when we lived there 11 months a long time ago :) Not many sunny days then.
It could be interesting to see inside this gallery too, but you may be right - no photos.
nice weekend to yo and greetings from the eastern part of Finland.
