Nestled amongst the hills of south west England, in the Avon River valley is a beautiful city named Bath. I was fortunate to be able see Bath for myself when I was heading from Wales to Salisbury, England. I was traveling with my friend Rick, his wife, and their son Ryan. It was a Sunday and they told me that an afternoon in Bath was the perfect family outing. This being said, we decided to go spend the day taking in the gorgeous Georgian architecture made with Bath limestone for which the city is famous. The city is actually in the mouth of an extinct volcano. When the Romans were occupying England they discovered hot springs and built a bath house and temple at this location. The remains of the Roman bath house are still there. There is also a church and a cathedral there which are absolutely gorgeous. We walked around looking at the city and then went to the large park on the river to relax and drink tea. There on the green is a gazebo. Since it was a Sunday afternoon there was a band playing. It was very pleasant afternoon. I cant think of a better place to spend a Sunday afternoon with family or friends.
