Seeing the folks

Rocket and I have been up to see the folks the other week. Rocket who is an pirate obsessed three year old
is convinced his grand parents are pirates. It was good timing as there was a tall ship festival going on in the Orkney's.Here are some photos of what was going on lots of sea inspired things including the Piers art centre that has a lovely space with some great exhibitions. I loved the colourful Jim Lambie pieces in the lower gallery.

Nice pattern in the exhibition
Rocket and I enjoyed a lovely exhibition at the museum of childhood. An exhibition dedicated to the author and illustrator Judith Kerr. The tiger who came to tea was publish in 1968 inspired by the authoress own bed time stories she would tell her  children. It's a charming exhibition an d fun interactive things to do. If your stuck with what to do with the kids this summer holidays there are plenty events over July and August relating to the exhibition.
