Bath, England

Roman Baths with Bath Abbey in the background.

Last weekend, Oneill, Carol, Kathleen and I visited the Roman Baths. We toured the Baths, themselves and the museum associated with it, as well as Bath Abbey. The city was first established as a spa with the Latin name, Aquae Sulis by the Romans in AD 43, and they built baths and a temple on the around the thermal energy hot springs on the site. Bath has been a tourist town for hundreds of years and was particularly popular in the 18th and 19th centuries which left its mark on the city via the stunning Georgian architecture of the Royal Crescent. O’neill, Carol, and Kathleen went to the Jane Austen Center (her novel Northanger Abbey is set in Bath) and I walked up to the Circus and the Royal Crescent. Overall it was a lovely day, and we managed to mostly avoid the occasional rainfallDora The Explorer Moonwalk.
