Last weekend we made a quick trip to Bath, which is just 1.5 hours west of London on the train. I thought the town was really lovely (though quite touristy), and I'd like to go back one day. I really enjoyed the hills. It's quite hilly there, and London is mostly flat, so it was a nice change of scenery. Our view from the hotel was pretty amazing (seen above, when the weather was taking a turn). I liked seeing the houses rolling along the green hills. We toured the Roman baths, went to Bath Abbey, relaxed in the Parade Gardens where we could admire the Pulteney Bridge, had tea with Mr. Darcy in the Jane Austin center, strolled around the town, took a sightseeing bus and the skyline bus, which cruised the outskirts of the city up along the hills, and we had a delicious dinner--Indian food. Yum.
And Lois got to chase a hot air balloon. She wanted to catch it.
