Mad, that is so cool! 8-) Great photos everyone. Here's one I snapped Sunday afternoon on Treasure Island looking at the Bay Bridge and San Francisco:

The brown bear on wheels is from my own collection and is a 1910 Steiff. The bears up there are all mine and are used to draw peoples attention to the old bears on sale upstairs. The previous owners of the shop had retail stock up there but you were always getting stepladders out to get something down for people to look at and then put it back so I decided to treat it as dead space and fill it up with something not on sale but which is a sort of mini museum.

As yet there is only one Discworld teddy bear and I own that :D If there is ever a cuddly range available then I'm sure I'll have it in the shop.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I don't think you can get Beathty Bears anymore. They always used to be quite popular at DW events.

The girls each have Beathty Bears that a friend bought for them at a Wincanton event. They love them!

Jaz, great pictures. I love that there's actually a place named Treasure Island. :D

:oops: I forgot to say how lovely your pictures were.

And I love that plaque, Chilli. :D

Maybe you should do a series of VW themed ones to sell at rallies.

Nice Chilli! I like Tony's VW suggestion.

Thanks guys. I have plans for a VW camper or 2, but need to perfect shading techiques for paintwork yet. Also thinking or doing some steam/traction engines for something different.

At the moment, these are the only camper pics I have done - more like little cartoons than proper pics.

In the meantime, I'm beginning one of the Corfe castle ruins.
