A Peek at the Beautiful City of Bath, Pt. 1
Yesterday we looked at a cupcake shop in Bath and today I'm showing a little tour of the city I didn't want to leave. The weather was perfect; clear, warm and sunny, and it was probably the greenest city I've ever seen. I didn't have the right lens to accurately capture the gorgeous hills that served as a backdrop to much of the scenery but I found them to be one of the things that made Bath so beautiful and picturesque.
Here's a bit of what it's like to live in Bath (and if you do, know that I hate you just a little):
We saw a few horse and buggies around town. I didn't realise the groom was waving until just now. Sorry, Mr. Groom!
How could I be in Bath and not visit the Roman Baths?
Views of the Great Bath:
At the very heart of the site is the Sacred Spring. Hot water at a temperature of 46°C (115° F) rises here at the rate of 1,170,000 litres every day and has been doing this for thousands of years. In the past this natural phenomenon was beyond human understanding and it was believed to be the work of the ancient gods.
The circular plunge bath which had projections of Roman male bathers on the wall (something the ladies could enjoy and a few guys, too):
The head of Minerva which was found in Stall Street in 1727.
See Part 2 tomorrow - I think this one's long enough!
