The Kelpies - Helix Park

Today was a long awaited visit to the East coast with the Kelpies very much in mind.

Their history is well documented so I'll keep this brief.

Created by the sculptor Andy Scott the theme of the Kelpies was from ancient ethereal water spirits and mystical water-borne equine creatures .

They reflect the mythological transforming beasts possessing the strength and endurance of ten horses.

It was a very pleasant walk around the park and I had the added bonus that Zippos circus were having and event to combine the Kelpies with their performing horses.
