A birthday in Bath


Yesterday, it was my birthday and so, after much deliberating,

we decided to catch the train to Bath!

First Great Western have an offer called Groupsave 4, which means that

four people can travel for the price of two..a bargain!

So, we asked the lads if they would like a freebie trip.



It got better!

FGR also do a weekend upgrade to first class

so we jumped into the empty first class carriage.

After a while a ticket collector came around to say that it must

be our lucky day as his ticket machine was not working so..

we could have free upgrades!!



Having travelled in peace and quiet, as soon as we reached Bath

we made for Sally Lunns, where one of her buns certainly sets you up

for the morning !






Somewhat full up, we strolled to The Assembly Halls and The Museum of Fashion.



Very interesting ...but I found the lighting very dim and so

my photos are not great.








The Assembly Halls are quite interesting too...

how I'd love to be taken around the city in

one of these...



The Sedan chair





We walked up to the Royal Crescent on this rather blustery day.





That done , we then made our way to The Pump Room

for a very pleasant and civilised lunch.




During the afternoon, ambling along Poultney Bridge, this flower shop caught my eye,

bringing some colour to an otherwise dull day, weatherwise.




And then of course, saving the most exciting bit til near the end....




Presents, you ask ?

Back soon with those!
