The sans part has since been rectified.
Yesterday we were in Bath. Lovely place. There was an art gallery that was on the bit of the odd side but then we like odd. The Herne sculpture was awesome, especially since the deer rack’s shadow cast down as wings on the wall.
Went to the Ale House on the corner of the square. Absolutely adorable bar man there and we got lunch. I got a meat pie, the rest of the Five got chili. Really. Chili. I am judging so hard. *grins* To be fair, we also got a plate of nachos to share. I have to make actual guacamole for them. But it was nice. No mushy peas for me. Minty or otherwise.
The Abbey itself was gorgeous. Took a lot of inside pix there. I’ll post those out in a bit. I’m doing this blog post on the fly before we had over to Oxford.
We walked about a bit, looked at the Roman Bath building but the queue was huge. They were processing tour groups through so it was chaotic.
Tried to take tea in a tea room. Got shunted around to their other tea room then ended up in the front room and they put us at a table above the others. Soooo much food. Ended up taking the cake home.
Hope everyone’s doing well. I’ve got to start plotting Kai out and then just going for it. I’ve got some inklings of what I want.
Right now, I have coffee and Halle the Cairn is keeping me company.

The pic of the building has fuzzy dots!!! Now, is that rain? It seems odd that they are placed like that. Very ghostly!!
It was rain. It was spitting 😀
I would guess rain. We Brits are “enjoying” rain at the moment after a brief burst of sun over the weekend. But I guess it makes the grass grow. . . Are those egg mayonnaise sarnies? Because I’d watch out for those, they can be iffy. In Oxford ask for a tea cosy – the lack of is disgraceful 😉
They were nice. The Sarnies. Creamy.. Needed salt and pepper.
The table was very much packed. 😀
Oxford is my favorite place in the world! Best gift shop is the Bodlian Library shop. Best little cafe, St. Giles Cafe (very near the Eagle and Child pub). The Jericho area has some cool shops. A lovely riverside pub is The Trout up in Wolvercote. It’s gotten pretty posh over the years but if you can sit outside along the river you can imagine Morse gulping his pint……
We did a tour and saw the Eagle and Child but ended up by Christ Church for coffee and Ice cream 😀
Real English tea sounds wonderful! Wish I was there to partake.
It was nice 😀
What a sculpture! And your treats! I have become a new fan of minty peas, here a new diner has opened, the owner/chef is from India, the exact town where I once lived. I hope you loved your meat pie, they are glorious, simple and Comforting.
The meat pie was lovely.
I so want an English tea now! As a side note, like the new look on the site.
