Photo Diaries: Easter in Bath

Hello, new feature! Every week I’ll be posting a few lovely photos I’ve taken in Photo Diaries. Each photo speaks for itself, showing what I’ve done and where I’ve been, but I may leave some commentary. This weekend, I went to Bath, England for Easter with my aunt.

This is Bath Abbey, one of the oldest parishes in England, where I went for a sung Easter service.

The Roman Baths are on the left, here. As you can see, the square could get very busy.

Walking down Grand Parade, this is the view. Beautiful.

We visited a fancy hotel in Royal Crescent, and found two cats! Very well taken care of, of course. We also found a cat in a shop window… Bath loves its pets!

In the Circle, famous architect John Wood created these houses, which form a ring around a courtyard. You can see Celtic designs, and pillars upon pillars on these houses. The architecture is so mysterious that people are still talking about it today.

Of course, we had to say hi to Jane Austen, who lived in Bath for five years! If you’ve read Persuasion, it takes place there.

And on Easter, we had afternoon tea in The Pump Room. I had spiced chai tea, and most of the desserts, of course.

The Roman Baths were gorgeous. Here’s one of several in there.
