Stalking Shaun the Sheep - the final episode

Yes one more Shaun the Sheep post...I have put a few sheep sculpture in other posts so excuse me if I repost the same ones...these are my favourites in no particular order.....Shaun the Sheep was on the streets of London from the 28th of March and extended until the 31st of May.  Out of 50 sculptures I saw 48 - not bad, eh?  For those keeping track.... for the life of me I could not find the one at the London Eye and I am sure it was a cutie being called "Ewe-nion Jack" and the one called Flash! at St Martin's Courtyard eluded me as well.  It wasn't for lack of trying!  I must admit it was great fun and I got to see places in London I'd never seen, hadn't seen in a while or just a good excuse to visit my favourite area of London. (which I must confess is the St James Park/Trafalgar Square area)  I will admit while I didn't physically beat kids off the sculpture (although it was tempting) I had been known to race them to it - and I usually won.  It was fun to meet other people who were Shaun stalkers as well.  I even paid to have the app on my phone as it was for a good cause.  Even though I could never figure out exactly how it worked....

I think some of these sculptures should have been called Shauna though...although maybe Shaun is a cross dresser....who knows?  

There are 120 Sculptures in total with 70 of them being in Bristol...wow I didn't realize Bristol was that big!  An auction will take place on 8th of October of this year and the Wallace and Gromit's Children's charity will benefit.  I am sure some of the Shauns will still be hanging outside of a few shops and restaurants in the future...here's hoping so even more people can enjoy them.
