Mom's Visit, Part 2: Bath

Mom and I took a day trip out to Bath.  Home of Roman Baths, a fashion museum and loads of Jane Austen memorabilia.  The fashion museum was my favorite part (aside from doing a little shoping myself). It documented English fashion with some pieces going back to the 17th century.  There were some parts that were very interactive, like getting to try on corsets and big skirts.  (Mom has those photos on her camera)  There were also more contemporary peices, such as some of Alexander McQueen's designs.

We also went to a Jane Austen museum which documented some of the Authoress' time in the city.

Mom's favorite part was the Jamie Oliver restaurant we had dinner at.

Unfortunately I didn't take many photos, but here are a few:

This was called the circle. Jane writes about it in a couple of her novels.

All of the gardens were beautiful and immacuately manicured.

Some of our new friends!
