A Lion Hunt in Bath

On Saturday we decided to wander into Bath to go on a lion hunt followed by dinner at Strada. Lions of Bath 2010 is a project where 100 individually decorated, life-size lion sculptures have been placed in and around Bath in order to raise money for charity and make people smile. The lions are dotted about all over the place from the railway station to the tops of buildings and in Victoria Park. In October the Lions will be auctioned off in aid of charity. I quite fancy one to go in the backgarden, although not sure Mr Style Eyes would be impressed with the idea!

Here I am with one of the lions in front of the Bath Thermea Spa.

vintage clothing I decided to wear the vintage floral dress that I wore to Vintage at Goodwood but in a slightly different way. I love the bright florals on dark background which lend themselves not only to summer outfits but also being combined with black for a slightly more autumnal look.

The bottom button on the dress is missing and I haven't replaced it. After Mr Style Eyes commenting that I was showing a lot of leg, I decided to wear it with leggings. I am glad that I did as it was really windy and the skirt kept blowing up.

Leggings can be real lifesavers, can't they?

It sounds like you had a good time! We had something similar to that in Orlando, but they were lizards. Or geckos. Or something. I can't remember. :)
