The first hare was in the foyer of the Roman Museum, and surrounded by the most breathtaking mosaics that were unearthed locally, and that date from the 4th century.
One day when funds allow I'd love to have a proper look round the museum, from the glimpses I've had it looks fascinating.
There were small hares as well, in the windows of shops. The children had little passports to take in to each shop and get stamped.
This is the loveliest book shop you could imagine. A good half of the shop is full of children's books, the good ones, carefully chosen. There are comfy chairs and a lovely sofa and it's just one of my favourite places. At the back are some equally good books for the grown-ups.
We dropped into the Oxfam book shop as well. I picked up Inkheart by Cornelia Funke for the children.
Onwards, more hares.
This one was decorated by Cath Hodsman, one of my favourite artists. She paints insects in minute detail, and her paintings are exquisite.
I did like some of the expressions on the hare faces. I'm getting a little supercilious disdain here.
And a touch of slight embarrassment here.
There was one inside the church so we took a moment to look around. A kindly guide entertained the boys with fantastic tales of giant slayers and magic doors. They were riveted.
Further along the high street I saw this sign. What a fantastic idea. I wish this sort of thing was done more.
At the end of our hunt we walked along to the park for a picnic.
All in all, a day well spent. Wishing you all a happy Sunday. CJ xx
