Priscilla the Gorilla, M Shed, Bristol

Priscilla the Gorilla was painted by Nia Samuel-Johnson. She is tucked away beside the brand new M-Shed which replaced the old Bristol Industrial Museum and which is definitely on my list of places to visit properly. It looks stunning on the quayside with the old cranes and the steam train running up and down to the SS Great Britain outside.

She was swarming with children when I was there so it was quite hard to photograph her.

Her flowers remind me slightly of a Sanderson wallpaper design.

We stopped at the Olive Shed fifty yards down the quayside and had a shared plate of veggie tapas and an order of whitebait and garlic aioli and a special dog bowl of cold water for Zeb. We really liked the whitebait and aioli, ( a couple of which found their way under the table to a greedy poodle). It’s a great place to sit and watch the boats going up and down the harbour on a Sunday afternoon with lovely food and attentive staff who are kind to dogs.
