Bath in the Sun!

 I was in Bath at the weekend enjoying the sunshine and the soaring temperatures-though it has to be said I didn't really take the right clothes with me. I just didn't believe it was going to be quite that hot-scorching is the word! I took a few pictures of the fabulous street entertainers who turn out each week whatever the weather. I met the talented artist, Adrian Sykes, (above) and bought a gorgeous painting of Marlborough Buildings (where Colonel Wallis lived in Persuasion). I did suggest he ought to paint some Jane Austen street scenes - not sure if he was convinced, but he did say he might venture out in Regency attire perhaps when the Jane Austen Festival is on!
I hope you enjoy the pictures of Bath in the sun!
