Oh what beautiful gargoyles.
There’ll be more! And I was delighted to see this lot in the rain, many of them spitting despite my guide book saying they rarely do. Apparently there are hundreds around Gdańsk – I only spotted about 15. Now to settle down to the far more difficult solidarity post.
What a cute way to deal with a drain pipe, but you know I’m going to ask, where is the water going? surely not just on to the street?
My trusty, mapless guide book says they lost their function with the advent of storm drains: I don’t know where that new pipe goes. Apparently these are unusual because they’re accessible on terraces rather than at the base of the roof, the usual habitation of a gargoyle. And that probably doesn’t answer your question!

Don’t stand beneath them! 🙂 🙂
I love beautiful/ugly gargoyles! Don’t ask me why 🙂 🙂
Me too, Jo!
Getting ready for the big trip, Sue? Love to Vivi! Have a great time! 🙂
Thanks, Jo! Finalising the packing today – it’s going to be hot (ugh) so I can travel light….
What a great set of uglies!
Gorgeous, or maybe sometimes gorging gargoyles with those big teeth.
Fascinating. Was always intrigued by the gargoyles at Sydney University. These have much more menace. Have tried repeatedly to email you but emails failed, so letting you know that I have likely date in second half of August. More later when I have my computer back and I get this tablet working properly.

Ooooo they’re kinda cute with their little lips peeled back.
What a perfect phrase. Their little lips are indeed peeled back!
What fun! Love the gargoyles – they are impressively photogenic!
What a wonderful variety! Wonder whether the angry human face spitting into that spout is someone’s likeness 😀
