It's a Little Bit Funny

No, there isn't anything particularly funny about today but it is the opening line from an Elton John song which was significant today.
At the suggestion of our B&B hosts we left car at Westbury and took the train to Bath, about 20 minutes away, and another hop on hop off bus tour around the city. It was definitely the way to see and learn about this beautiful place.
A lot of the buildings look the same as above and were built as apartments for the well to do to stay in while on holiday. All the buildings are made using Bath stone.
Above on the left is the famous Bath bathes, which we opted not go into at £14($28) each. On the right is the abbey. The man busking in the middle is where the significance of the song comes in. Those who know us well will know about "Penny moments", this fella set me off while he was singing "Your Song". Moments like these are sad but comforting at the same time. We walked away laughing, wondering what people thought of two women (I set Brenda off too) crying in the town square.
Back to Westbury and in the car we headed for the Cotswolds where it was stepping back in time(except for all the cars). The villages are beautiful and quaint with all their stone cottages with thatched or slate tiled roofs and narrow streets.
This was our bedroom in "The Crown and Trumpet", a 300+ years inn in Broadway.
Another day done and looking forward to a garden walk tomorrow.


  1. Bath is beautiful. My aunt lives in a little town outside Bath and she showed me round a few years ago.

  2. Yes, it was lovely. It would've been lovely to fun a bit more time to explore.
