A tranquil city
The greyishcolor of the stones used in the Bath architecture is so appealing to the eyes. The architecure just flows and feels very comforting. Spending days exploring Bath and many other areas of western England and then coming back to our rented cottage, having a meal and going for a long swim in our own private, indoor, heated pool. Heavenly!
I came back to The Parade Gardens; Looked like the light was going dim...The sun was going down.
I had to get back to The Backpackers Inn; taking shower; Maybe meeting some people...
In this case, oh yes I did ! I met Radek from Poland...He looks like Harry Potter ! Maybe the glasses ?
Widcombe is just behind the railway station. It's a nice street with some of the finiest resturants in Bath (I'll write about these soon) A quaint coffee shop too. From the top of the street you can walk across the road (to the left) and start a walk along the canal into Bath, it's a nice relaxing moment.
If you continue up a steep hill, past The White Hart Inn and after 10 minutes you will be at the start / finsh of the 'Bath Sky Walk' <- TIP !
The Gay Street...
Feeling disappointed of not able to take photos around The Royal Crescent, I took a photo of The Gay Street ! Feeling so amusing about the street name so I thought this would make some kind of memory being in Bath !
Using the zooming feature on my digital camera, glad that this photo turns out nicely !
Milk Shake Heaven!!!
A huge thanks to VTer Sue-Stone for this tip!!! I probably wouldn't have found this place if I hadn't read her tip before my Bath trip, and her description inspired me to check it out!
Well I wasn't disappointed! Bright exterior/interior.

Limited snacks too, sandwiches, cakes etc.

Branches in Bournmouth, Southampton, Brighton, Reading, Croyden
Web site, with fan club, news, games etc.
Shaker Cow card....buy so many shakes, get one free! Well out of 126 shakes, I was a bit spoiled for choice, but eventually narrowed it down to Chocolate and peanut butter, turkish delight and parma violet.
The choc/peanut butter won, with a topping of nuts..Mmmmmmm!!!
As I hadn't eaten breakfast, and it was around 11am, I was a bit peckish, the menu advertised sandwiches and cakes, but there was a very poor selection, I ended up with a small square of pre wrapped carrot cake, which was quite expensive. Otherwise, a must do!
