Usually, I start out telling of a vacation sequentially — we arrived here, then there, and so on…
But for our spring trip to the United Kingdom, I’m beginning with the most unexpectedly jaw-dropping.
The delight of The Kelpies!! Driving between Glasgow to Edinburgh, they loom from the highway.
We were lucky for a spectacular sky of turquoise and popcorn clouds.
But any backdrop would be mysterious and magnificent with a foreground of these colossal creatures.
Label them horse heads if you will. In person, they’re far more.
The closer we got to them, the more magical they were. It didn’t matter what side we viewed them from.
From any angle, they bordered nature and the supernatural. Here’s more on The Kelpies and their sculptor Andy Scott, and an explanation of what kelpies are.
Here’s about our visit to jam-packed London and the British Museum Part 1 and Part 2 and Part 3, bubbly fun at Bath, and Avebury, and Stokesay Castle, and Harlech and Conwy and Penrith and Ullswater.
Has a sculpture ever spellbound you with its marvelousness?
