For Sale In Ross – My Sunday Photo – 3/09/17

Hello everyone. Last week in my #mysundayphoto post I said I was planning to spend the bank holiday Sunday at the beach. However when Mr A checked the traffic that morning we decided against the idea. We didn’t fancy spending hours stuck in traffic jams.

Instead we decided to take a drive out to Ross-On-Wye. A beautiful little town that has an abundance of little antique shops. However being a Sunday most of these were closed so we decided instead to visit first the garden centre there and secondly to take a walk along the river Wye.

While in the garden centre we saw the subject of my first photo. A set of bronze wild boar statues. I think the boar in the Forest of Dean are rather cool even though they do make an awful mess, so I would love to have this family of boar in my garden. However I don’t have either a garden or the hundreds of pounds it would cost to buy them.

After walking along the river we popped into a little gift shop that is located by the Hope and Anchor pub. Inside I saw something that I had to feature in this weeks post. A full set of replica medieval armour. Available to buy for a mere £1000.

This would make the most amazing talking point in the right setting.

Which would you be more in lined to buy, the boar or the armour?

    I’d love both but fear that if the armour was standing in my hallway I’d probably jump every time I came across him. Giving myself such a fright.
    The boar photo reminded me of my time in Sidney Australia… where there is a life size bronze statue of a boar outside the oldest hospital. People rub it’s nose for good luck. Here’s a link if you’d like to know/see more
    Have a great Sunday and thanks for sharing 😀

    What a lovely place. Knowing our family, it would have to be the armour x

    That’s a tough choice! I think I’d go for the boar, although perhaps just one rather than the whole family!

    I thought the boar was impressive until I saw the armour and that really made me huckle. You can imagine someone actually buying that and trying to wear it out somehwere 🙂

    I love them both but I think I would probably go for the boar. I’m not sure I have the room in the house for a suit of armour!
