I'm still sorting through photos (phone and new camera) from our UK holiday. We left Cornwall to spend a few days in Bath Spa. We stayed at Hill House, a lovely historical 6-room guesthouse in Bath Spa.
We had a pub meal.
And were joined by my nephew, his wife, and son who live in the nearby village of Bradford-on-Avon.
It was graduation week at the University of Bath, so the town was bustling with festivities, music, proud families, and happy graduates.
There was so much to see and learn about in Bath Spa. Again, we could have stayed here for weeks and never run out of things to do.
Hot air balloons tours are a thriving business here. We saw them from the ground near the Royal Crescent.
River craft have to go to the east of the bridge to avoid the weir.
Many narrow boats, both moored and navigating, were on the river and canal. The not-so-narrow tour boats and floating bars kept to the river.
More to come on our stay in Bath Spa.

My sister took photo below from the window of their room of the rest of us crossing the street below.
|That's me at the front followed by my brother, sister, some unknown interloper, and my brother-in-law.|
|Same room. You can see all my stuff trashing up the place.|
|Brother-in-law, sister, brother.|
|The whole crew, waiting for our various pies.|

|One end of the Royal Crescent.|
|There were at least 5 balloons aloft for this sunset.|
We wandered along the River Avon to the Pulteney Weir and Bridge.

|Narrow boats moored along the river near the train station, not the most scenic spot, but it seemed that the best mooring spots were filled.|
