May be I should have given you some of my Beijing photos for this Saturday posting, but I will come back to this olympic city later.
Today I will give you some photos from the city Bath, Sommerset in south-western England.The city was founded, among surrounding hills, in the valley of the River Avon around naturally-occurring hot springs where the Romans built baths and a temple, giving it the name Aquae Sulis (AD 43). Edgar was crowned king of England at Bath Abbey in 973. Much later, it became popular as a spa resort during the Georgian era, which led to a major expansion that left a heritage of exemplary Georgian architecture crafted from Bath Stone.
During her stay with our daughter in Wales, Tullen met David´s family from Brighton (and Spain) in Bath. This photo shows the cousins Helene and Grace together with nanny Felicity while the young generation are discussing where to have lunch by using the iPhone gadget.
Of corse they ended up at Sally Lunn´s in the oldest house in Bath (from 1482) and known for the famous Sally Lunn Bun.The Roman Bath and the Bath Abbey are the landmarks in Bath as can be read if clicking on the above links:but the urban children found the King Bladud´s Pigs more interesting. Back home in Wales the summer showed up with good weather so Helene and Henrik had the opportunity to have their own bath in their garden swimming pool.
