Dundee outing: Maggie’s Penguin Parade

Dundee outing: Maggie’s Penguin Parade

On Monday the 13th of August, a group of 12 Project Ability artists traveled to Dundee to see some of the Maggie’s Penguin Parade trail.

In our midst was Ruth Mutch who had painted one the penguins for the event. We meet outside around 10am and traveled by minibus, the drive there was about an hour and a half and the same back, so not a short journey.

Once we arrived we headed to where Ruth’s penguin named Penguin PJ’s (or PJ for short) is located and took photos with him. We then went on a walk around Dundee city centre spotting as many penguins as we could along the way.

We also saw Desperate Dan and Minnie The Minx too! After around an hour of walking in the rain we were all a little tired and wet, so no one was too sad to return to Glasgow. On the drive back we spotted some more penguins and stopped to get photos.

We arrived home around 3:20pm to find Glasgow dry. All in all a great day was had by all and some excellent penguins spotted.
