Bath Abbey in Bath England…….

Once again , after some snacks and refreshments, we made our way back down to the Abbey and stepped inside …….these cathedrals  are always fascinating  because its so hard to believe that the people of these ancient times could get this altogether so nicely and it still stands today. All the carvings and marble….and there is usually at least two or three in each town about the size of a medium city…..plus all the small chapels etc………This was connected to the Roman Baths along with a square for business and pleasure……..Here area some of the pics that I took that afternoon:

Tomorrow I’ll share going to the SW Coast of England (about 3 hours of driving on the wrong side of the road again………. starting to get used to it some….lol………..and it took over an hour just to find our way out of town that morning……..lol. )   we will visit the place where filming of the TV show  Doc Martin,  on public broadcasting  here in the US,  takes place………one of our favorite shows……..Port Isac is the town……….stay tuned…….

Happy Trails!!
