We headed directly to Bath by motor coach from our Heathrow early morning arrival.
Just a few photos of Bath showing famous Pulteney Bridge crossing the River Avon,
Bath Cathedral, the entrance to the Roman spa, and lovely buildings of golden stone
along the winding streets. Last there in the summer of 2014 - click to see more photos
of this amazing Roman city in the heart of the Somerset countryside.
That first evening we met up with a very special blog friend, sweet Rosemary of
Where Five Valleys Meet. She and her charming husband drove to the city
and we met in the lobby of our hotel for a long chat. Later we headed to a
vegetarian cafe for a very tasty meal, followed by a stroll around the
city center which was quite vibrant being a Saturday night. A lovely all too
short time together, but it will always be memorable as meeting long time
blog friends always is. If you don't already follow Rosemary, take a look at her
amazing blog filled with color, flower photography, history, and travel stories
to the most exotic places.
(Sunday arrived and another special day had been planned to meet our dear friends
from Wiltshire - more on the exciting time with them in my next post from Bath.
I have a ton of photos to organize and edit from that day).
Monday we were up early for departure from Bath to Torquay, again
by bus, but first we headed out to amble about the city streets.
Washed down, clean, sun shining but quite cool, as
were most days on this recent trip, but only a few raindrops!
