We didn't actually make it to Bath until early afternoon.  We kinda took things slow and easy that day, and at first I was worried we might not actually have enough time in Bath since we arrived so late.  lol, we did ALL of Bath in only three hours... so much for worrying.

Bath is a relatively small town.. everything shut down by 5pm.  We spent a couple hours going through the Roman Baths, which were pretty neat.  Bath is the site of a very large Roman Bath centered around a natural springs.  There used to be huge buildings but now its all ruins.  A couple of the large baths are still intact with big pools of water.  It actually would have looked really neat in Roman times... not as much now.  After that, we briefly looked in Bath Abbey and walked over to a neat looking bridge.  But... after that... there was nothing left to do.  lol.  Oh wells.  We did have some really damned good cornish pastys for lunch!  My favorite was the thai chicken.  I wanted to get scones with clotted cream... the clotted cream is a regional thing I really really wanted to try.  But, by the time we finished wandering around Bath, everything had closed down.  So we pretty much hung out in the restaurant and bar of the hostel for the rest of the night.
