The End of the Bear Trail

That’s it! No more bear hunts!  We’re done!

Between George, myself, Impostor and Mummy we have found all 50 bears.  And this is our picture gallery of the 50 + 3 bears! 

Today the bears are being removed from their premises.

Those weren’t the only Paddington Bears around London – this one was at the Post Office.
IMG_0300And then there was this sculpture at Paddington Station.IMG_9875Along the way we were met with disappointment when we heard that someone stole the goggle from The Spirit of Paddington.  He was taken away to be repaired and we had just missed him. But with perverance, we found him when he was returned to Berkeley Square.  And of course O2 who would not let us in and Impostor had to step in to get the job done. 🙂

We’re going to miss you all, Paddingtons!  We have truly enjoyed looking for you.  In the process we have discovered parts of London we have never been to while on the hunt.

Good team work, Georgie Porgie and Impostor – and of course Mummy – who on some days thought she was mad for doing this.

So, now what are we going to do?!?!?!

May’s comment: We never intended to find all 50 – it was too crazy to fathom!  But when we got going, the Bears were not only fun to find, but London seemed more manageable.  And as we started to venture into places we normally had no reason to go to, it became more than just finding Paddington Bears – it was learning about London.  From that aspect, it’s been fantastic – but exhausting!

We’ve enjoyed the movie just as much. I thought Paddington Bear’s expressions were so much like Darcy’s – I kept thinking of her when I watched the movie. 🙂

But the bear hunt is now complete – and we can now focus on the new year.

    Great accomplishment! It’s quit impressive how you maneuvered Ms Darcy and George
    Around London and take great photos of them with each Paddington!
    George and Darcy bravo to you. You are very good dogs otherwise this project couldn’t have happened.
    I wonder how many people and their 4 pawed friends made the same track!
    You are winners in my book.
    Happy New Year.
    Love,
    Judy

    Well done Muskateers! It’s been great to follow your progress! And to see photos of all of the Bears. You all deserve a medal!
    Wishing you all a Happy New Year with lots more adventures. X
