– 2018/81 a day in Bath

I was going to talk to you about the latest book I read, which I really enjoyed and left me wanting to read more… but instead I got roped into driving my parents and their guest to Bath for the day.

(Actually, I was going to write about it yesterday but ended up spending 3 1/2 hours in the accident and emergency department with No 3 whose career as a goalie was cut short by an unfortunate ball v wrist incident.  The ball won and the poor boy will be wearing a splint for 4 weeks to repair two broken bones in his forearm).

Anyway, as we were saying… today I took a trip to Bath… such a beautiful city… so elegant… even in the rain that soaked us at the beginning of the day…

only to disappear and leave us with the most glorious blue sky…

I normally go for a shopping day and I must admit it was actually really nice to be a tourist for the day.  I think I spent most of the time looking up at the gorgeous buildings…

Whilst the visitors checked out the Roman Baths (I’d already seen them four times… enough, right?) I popped into the abbey which I’d never seen before.  Very serene.

Also, I finally saw Pulteney Bridge, no idea why I never had before… very strange… it’s right in the centre after all!

I can’t help myself to imagine what it would feel like to live in all the amazing houses in the city… call me Jane Austen…

and this square would be perfect for a daily ‘constitutional’…

I still haven’t visited the American Museum or the Jane Austen museum… dad offered some resistance to both suggestions… I guess I need a girlie day out for those!

  1. How can you not have been to the America Museum, it’s full of quilts! But, I think it’s closed at the mo due to flood damage. Did you get into the Art Gallery in Bath, I think that has a Kaffe Fasset exhibition? Wondering if it’s worth a trinsle out to.
