After a quick flight over the pond from Bordeaux, we arrived in Bath at about 7:00 pm. We stayed in this beautiful place called, "The Apsley House:Bed and Breakfast". We highly recommend this B&B! The owners were so friendly and the breakfasts were amazing.
Back side of the B&B
We sat there in the evening and it was so relaxing, with great music in the background,and an open bar.
Breakfast room, this picture doesn't do it justice.
This was our room. I loved the comfy bed.
This was our first night in Bath,and we walked to a local pub for some dinner.
The famous Royal Crescent. I'd seen this so many times featured in movies, that I just had to see it in real life. For some reason, I thought the stone work was more on the white side, so it kind of took me by surprise. Still beautiful none the less.
Linked by Brock Street, is King's Circus.
The Bath Abbey
The Roman Baths. We took the tour, and it was quite interesting. I have a ton on pictures,but I think this one sums it up.

This guy was going at a good clip with this charming wagon of flowers!
We had dinner at Jamie's Italian. This is one of Jamie Oliver's restaurants. We were hoping to try at least one of them while we were in England. We thought it would be neat to go to his restaurant called "15," in St. Ives, but it wasn't easy to get a reservation. This restaurant concept comes from his cookbook called "Jamie's Italy" and includes some of the recipes in that book.
Caitlin waiting for her food, and probably missing Cyrous....
This antipasto plate was yummy.
The pasta we had was "linguine, with prawns and arugula" I have made this from his cookbook. I'll have to say, it was much better in the restaurant, than when I made it.
This is the part of the post where I show and tell what I purchased. For those of you who know about Cath Kidston, then you know my excitement to see this storefront!
There were just too many things to choose from!
Caitlin managed to find a little shower cap and some lotion.
I can't wait to make some of the projects in this book. It even came with a free muslin tote inside and a skein of DMC floss.
This is an up close picture of the oil cloth tote bag that I bought for myself.
Backing up a bit, here is that darn chateaux in Bordeaux, that we couldn't get in because of time constraints. The photos of the inside looked so neat.
Bath was loads of fun and I found it a very pleasant and beautiful city, I wish we had more time there. We also ate at some wonderful places there and found the people very friendly.
See you tomorrow, where we will leave for Cornwall.....
