Trip to Bath

Yesterday on Thursday 14th of July, Jane, Suzette, Julia, Billy and I went on a trip to Bath. We went on the train from Yeovil pen mill, and got off at Bath spa. When we arrived in Bath Jane had printed off some maps so we could find where we wanted to go, although after spending about five minutes trying to decipher where we were and where we wanted to go on this tiny little map i discovered we had been stood behind a massive poster with the same map we had been looking at the whole time. We finally made it to Pultney Bridge it was absolutely beautiful, we had the weather on our side and it was a glorious day, the sun was shining and it was really warm.  We looked at the bridge and the all the little water falls underneath, in the meanwhile it was like Julia hadn’t left work and was constantly on the phone trying to sort things out. We went for a coffee in a little cafe which looked out right over the bridge and the water.  After that we went to the Queen Victoria art gallery and looked at some truly wonderful pieces of work full of colour, no two pieces were the same and were all fantastic in their own way. Upstairs in the gallery was full of much of older work which dated back to the 1300’s  the painting were a lot more dark and more depressing but were really good in their own way. Afterwards we walked up to Royal crescent and walked through the circus on the way, all the old Georgian houses were absolutely  stunning in the Royal crescent, here is where we has our picture taken, after multiple tries to get Jane’s camera to work, and Jane feeling more and more embarrassed we finally had one taken on my camera. Afterwards we sat in the green on the front of the crescent and sat down and had some lunch, the sun was still shining and made it all the more gorgeous and we had finally managed to prize Julia away from her phone for five minutes. Afterwards the time had flown by and it was nearly time to go home, and we hadn’t even done any shopping yet, we walked back to the town but on the way got drawn into lots of little shops with sales in. By the time we had got back to the town we only had about 40 minutes until we had to meet at the train station, although i was relieved i was knackered and ached everywhere i felt like i had walked a marathon. After popping in a few shops we all met at the train station, i know i can speak for us all when i say we had a really wonderful day and the weather was absolutely gorgeous.
