Around and about Bristol Harbourside…

A great trip to Bristol’s Harbourside, to visit the boys Grandma. We walked around the docks areas and had lunch at the very well-situated Arnolfini art gallery, then over to the M-Shed, where there was an exhibition of Bristol’s connections to chocolate, with associations for industry and the slave trade.
