The Roman Baths are the heart of Bath which was begun around 45 AD as a spa for Roman conquerors. They found that the hot springs cured a number of ailments – not surprising, since the mineral content in the springs/baths contain over 40 different minerals. In the 1800’s and early 1900’s it was THE destination point for Kings and Queens.

Beautiful green algae water (wonder what made them think this would be great to swim in?)

Bath was one of those quaint towns out in the English countryside… took us about an hour and half to get there by bus but definitely worth the trip. Many shops and awesome architecture….

(Note the angels climbing the “ladders” on the Abbey….such interesting detail everywhere ;-)
