Another great travel theme from Where’s My Backpack this week (click here to see more entries).
Inspired by Ailsa’s photo of The Spire in Dublin, I thought I’d share with you a photo of our own silver statue in Cardiff Bay.
The Water Tower isn’t usually covered in strawberry stickers, they were added to celebrate the Cardiff Festival. As the name suggests, it’s actually a water fountain. When it’s in full flow, all the local kids dare each other to see who can touch the silver panels before the wind changes and they get soaked by a wall of water. The Water Tower is also the entrance to the fictitious Torchwood in the popular TV series. It’s quite amusing to watch fans of the show jumping up and down next to the fountain, expecting the floor to open up underneath them 🙂
