Ramblings about life . . .

What I share about my life is simply to help reinforce the understanding that it is possible to live with love and laughter, in between the tough times.

Life is what we make of it, no matter how harrowing. We accept and embody this with-in ourselves, thereby allowing the energy to manifest outwardly in our reality.

It starts with each one of us as an individual to form the collective consciousness.

Be the dream.

We honour the light and the life within you.

Please be aware - I upload other bloggers' posts and then delete after a month. This is my journey and others help me understand where I am, until they become irrelevant (a few posts excepted).

Bath, Somerset

P1200476

What an amazing place Bath is! This Heritage site was built by the Romans 60 AD.

We spent a long weekend there during May last year.

I had no expectations whatsoever, as I'd never paid much attention to this place...but WOW...so well worth the visit. I have always been fascinated by the Romans, their architecture and art. The Roman Baths are very well preserved, the hot springs still bubbling up.



Beautiful stone houses, the theme of which is carried through in the new builds - a very well looked after very hilly city and not expensive at all considering it was both a bank holiday weekend and summer school holidays.

Saturday we explored the place top to bottom. walking for hours on end, discovering a chapel ruin with many interesting graves. We had dinner in a Moroccan restaurant before walking up the seriously steep hill to our hotel. I persuaded Greg to take a detour right to the top of the hill to take a night photo. Geez, were we knackered when we got to the top but the view was well worth it.

Sunday we visited the Roman Baths, spent a few hours in the central gardens with many others listening to a band playing, took a boat ride down the Avon, before stopping for dinner, after which we caught a taxi home (did not feel like the serious uphill climb to the hotel).

Monday we drove home, stopping off at Avebury Henge (standing stones) on the way.

We climbed this steep road every day/night to get to our hotel
