roman baths

yes, i'm STILL blathering about our trip to england, and it's almost ancient history now as we returned two weeks ago today. i am sorry, but i'm doing it mostly for myself so i can remember the trip! a good exercise in brain power.
for no particular reason, we saved some of the most famous sites in bath for our last day there. namely, the ruins of a roman bath house for which bath was named. it was cool, but loaded with tourists on a lovely friday morning. we wandered through, learned a bunch, and went on with our day.

So beautiful. And somehow you got shots sans tourists! I glanced at the first shot and figured you'd also gone to Pompeii. Looks just like the tepidarium.

Oh, but these are gorgeous pictures! I did wonder why Bath was given that name, now I know! :)

ooooh! i've never been to pompeii! now i have yet another place to add to the "places to see" list!

the baths were honestly really cool, i'm just not keen on touristy things. they had reconstructed them well and had a nice museum attached, and it all had a nice "flow," no pun intended.
