Sun-BATHed

A photograph heavy post of our day in Bath, England.  It took us just over an hour to get there from South Wales.
Its probably one of our most expensive days out in a long while, namely because D decided he wanted to check out the Roman Baths.  











 Now back onto the streets of Bath.



Public art - a running man, maybe even a flying man.
Some street theatre.

 Click on the images to learn more about the traditional Bath Bun. 


I liked this particular shop 'Kiss The Frog Again', lots of recycled furniture and original art work.  For me it was eye candy.
We rarely eat out,  let alone at an exclusively vegetarian eatery, so another treat for me was to have lunch at Demuth's Restaurant.

  2. Another of your fabulous adventures. Lovely photos. I found myself looking at the buildings and wondering just how many I could get into on wheels...Glad to know there are vegetarian restaurants available now. We need more of those here.

    Must dash as my tea is almost ready...

    1. Thanks e.
      Many of the buidings have been adapted, so I think you would have been totally fine. It such a wide space as well. I have to say, there was still a v. good slection of eateries in Bath that offered good veggie grub, I just wanted to visit Demuths.

  3. You didn't say what you ate at Demuths and how was it? I liked the look of the restaurant from the outside..

    All the photos were great. Maybe some day, will get there.

    Wonderful art! Such history.

    1. GardeningBren,
      You will have to forgive me for my lazy post, plus I don't really do reviews of eateries on my blog. I liked what I had. I had the poached pear option, something I would not ordinarily make for myself.

  4. Oh, I do love your "day trip" posts! You always make the places you visit so inviting. It also inspires me to try to explore more semi-local places but I've yet to manage to go from thinking to acting!

    I'm doing some catch-up on your blog and am enjoying the recent posts that I missed. Your plants are looking good! I spent a good part of today getting my weeds under control (if there is such a thing!) but the vegetables are happy and thriving! Now I just need to find the time to post more on gardening and food!

    1. Thank you RuckusButt.
      I have to thank my husband for getting me to these places, otherwise I know I would have been such a homebird. He is the reason I got to see so much of Scotland when I lived there.

      I will come by your blog later today, I have been a bit distracted myself with visiting. Hope you well.

  5. Lovely to see your photos - I love the roman baths and all of bath - it is so jane austen and was one of the first places I ever visited in the UK so it is a sentimental favourite too. That recycled frog shop has one of the best shop names I have seen - would have loved to have wandered through with you

  13. It looks a lovely day out Shaheen, it looks very hot on the pictures. The Roman baths look amazing. Interesting shops too and that Kiss the Frog one sounds my type of place. I can see why it was a costly day out but a really nice treat to top if off at the veggie restaurant.
