Palladian glories

Last week, on one of the hottest days of the year, OV and I were to be found climbing up to the Bath ‘skyline walk’, pausing every few metres to enjoy the views (and get our breath back!)  Encountering a ‘man with a map’ (and very friendly and helpful he was, too) we were lured down from the heights, to the lower gate of Prior Park – conveniently, right next to the tea hut! Thus refreshed, we wandered in the beautiful landscape gardens awhile and restored our energy levels before setting out to regain lost altitude and continue the walk.

This bridge alone, made the additonal expenditure of energy worthwhile – even if the detour meant that we didn’t complete the ‘skyline walk’ – but that just leaves something good for another (cooler?) day.

About apthomas

I love books, reading, writing, baking, chocolate, painting, sewing, people and fairtrade - not necessarily in that order. I am a lazy gardener - who loves the garden, and a lazy housewife who likes the place to be warm and welcoming. I live in beautiful Somerset - but have had to leave the countryside at a little distance, having moved into town.
