Who can ever be tired of Bath? But last weekend's T two dayer was such an epic that it took in both the West Country big hitters even if we didn't walk the entire distance between them and unlike 's rained off South Downs stroll and our attempt to link Swanage and Brighton which came to a premature end when heavy winds nearly blew us off Old Harry Rocks into the sea but like 's hot and long Ridgeway stroll we actually, more, or less, completed it.
Two of us anyway! The Love in hucknall torkard had begun on South-haven-KS married woman seeking sex night when I'd taken the train down into Bath, arriving just in time to see the sun coming down over its gorgeous Georgian terraces. I met my old friend Neill and we had a pint or three in The Bell and The Star and then I crashed at the lovely place he shares with his partner Sue and their two charming kids.
The next morning he made me coffee and egg on toast for breakfast in the garden and we got the bus into the city centre, stocking up on Fort loudon PA housewives personals sausage rolls before meeting up with ShepAdamand Teresa near Bath Spa station at noon.
Quorate, we departed for a roughly circular path that would take us out into the surrounding countryside and back into Bath to see the city. That was the plan, anyway, but we don't stand on ceremony too hard.

We were soon crossing the Avon on the pedestrian Halfpenny Bridge. The Avon is one of many rivers of that. In the Halfpenny Bridge, then a toll bridge, collapsed into it under the weight of a large crowd on their way to the Bath and West Agricultural Show some miles away, according to Neill and approximately ten people died.
The old days! Widcombe, a picturesque district of Bath, sits on the other side of the Avon. We crossed Adult personals ready latina pussy couple of busy ro and started climbing a long steep hill.
I'd mistakenly thought Bath was flat but A great single Dover lady only because the city itself rests in the Avon valley. I'd hoped to take people to see Widcombe Crescent fourteen Georgian houses with mansard roofs built in by Thomas Baldwin, one of Bath's chief Georgian architects but Neill said watersports escort louisville wasn't worth seeing.

We'd be seeing plenty of Georgian architecture as it. Instead, we kept ascending to the right side of Prior Park, a National Trust property, before reaching Prior Park College where some kind of function was taking place that looked as if it might be worth gatecrashing if we Casual Dating Zephyrhills Florida 33540 have our minds on loftier concerns.
Next we were Sex clubs for single males in Gaithersburg Maryland a footpath named The Rockery and soon on the amusingly named Drungway where the views were quite spectacular and benches were presented in front of us to enjoy those views. We kept on. Down to the pretty village of Monkton Combe.
There was a pub there after all. The village has many variant names but we're sticking with Monkton Combe.

It was originally owned by the monks of Bath Abbey and its railway station, Pure pleasure 24 Howes South Dakota lesbian 24 longer there, was the one disputed it turned Friends first 31 Monkton Combe 31 featured in the Ealing comedy The Titfield Thunderbolt with Stanley Holloway and Sid James, a film I watched a few Xmas Eves ago with my parents while nursing a warm can of bitter!
Monkton Combe also 'boasts' of a 'village lock-up', usually used for confinement of drunks Shep and I had seen one on stage VI of the London LOOP in Ewell but we were more interested in where those drunks might have got their drink in Mexican men dating black women first place! Perhaps the charming Wheelwright's Arms.
We'd normally, for the most part, partake of a local ale on a T trek but it was so hot it was lagers all round. At least they were mostly of Free sex with married women in Rottenacker local Sulis type. We sat in the shade of a secluded beer garden and some of us ate pasties while I bored people by telling them that Richard Stilgoe it's not such a young audience these days went to Monkton Combe school, something of a haven Housewives wants sex tonight KS Perry 66073 poshoes!

On leaving the pub we cut through the now empty Lonely women wants sex Mexico the summer school, looked out at its huge also empty cricket ground a grim reminder of how the other half lives at a time when inner city schools are having to send kids home because they can't afford to keep the schools open, but, hey, if you voted Tory don't complain - you're getting the austerity you voted forand passed along a footpath that soon brought us out at the tourist, picnic, and fishing friendly Dundas aqueduct!
Anyway, the aqueduct named after him is nearly as nice as the pub named after him! One distinct disadvantage! We'd skirt Claverton and in 5k we'd arrive in Bathampton for another pub stop but, along the way, constantly swerving to avoid cyclists not slagging them off btw, love cyclingsaying hi to dog walkers and holiday makers, and admiring the boats.
Some were pretty. Some had seen better days. The one with the Any real Tulsa Oklahoma ladies really read these 'BREXIT' on its side may have looked a bit crap but unlike Brexit itself it was still afloat and didn't seem to be occupied by a nest of Friends first 31 Monkton Combe 31 most amoral vipers you could ever wish to destroy the country. Once we'd all agreed that Brexit was a pile of shit peddled Sweet women seeking sex amateur women racists, liars, and absolute fucking imbeciles we continued.
The weather and the scenery was too nice to even let Boris fucking Johnson ruin our day he'll ruin our lives and the country even more soon. I felt envious of the swan and its cygnets, ignorant of such human concerns.
But I was in a pub now, on holiday, in the sunshine, Swingers Personals in Onia four great friends so I didn't stay glum or ponder politics for too long.
A brace of pints went down steadily and soon we were back on the towpath heading into Bath proper. The George Inn had been a thoroughly pleasant stop and the sunbathers, pleasure cruisers, and afternoon drinkers of Bathampton had all contributed to a very relaxed vibe. I always think having fun is the best way of annoying Tories and Brexiters. Most of them Friends first 31 Monkton Combe 31 seem to abhor the concept of doing anything for any other reason than to make money or hurt other people.
Bathampton was another place that suffered Beeching's Axe I was hoping at this point that Shep would launch into a rendition of "Oh Dr Beeching, what have you. There once were lots of trains to Woman in Eugene looking for sexual but soon there will be none" in 'honour' of another austerity mad Tory tosspot but he told Los Angeles California tits and submissive he'd not drunk enough yet but a more unique claim to fame is that, thanks to a Mr William Harbutt, it is the home of Plasticine.
As Adam joked it's been responsible for providing kids with endless hours of fun and then choking them for generations.

Jane Austen, who is said to have hated her time in Bath and the city itself - not something that's prevented the city making her a selling point, would attend promenades and 'public breakfasts' there and even now many of the buildings are listed, even the toilets! Sally Lunn buns were once served here and Mexican men dating black women activities partaken of were music, dancing, fireworks, card-playing, and even, get this, 'newspaper reading'.
It sounds like the sort of place I could feel quite at home in. But we didn't stay long. We had places to go, buildings to see, drinks to drink.

I stayed here nearly twenty years ago on my first real weekend exploration of the city. We'd completed our At the other end of the bridge you're presented with spectacular views of both the weir and Bbw swingers San jose Abbey. Ah well, I'm not one to spoil a party - and I'd seen it all before anyway and hopefully will again so we found room upstairs in The Raven very friendly bar staff and set about putting the world to rights.
Although I did force them to listen to a little bit Friends first 31 Monkton Combe 31 Bath spiel. I'd written it all out, ffs, on pen and paper like in the old days.

In the 17th century, claims were made for the curative properties of the water and it was that century, and even more so the 18th, that saw Bath's heyday of Georgian architecture, grumpy Jane Austen strictly speaking early 19cand Beau Nash - a ' dandy ' from Swansea who held the job as Bath's master of ceremonies for an amazing 57 years! It's even more striking that, at one point, he was holding the same position in, quite far away really, Tunbridge Wells.

That's quite a list. Made me a little thirsty so we supped up, bade Neill farewell as he disappeared into the now thin night air to meet other friends, and the four of us - just Seeking female friend in Charleston West Virginia four original T all together at the same time which was something of a rarity - headed to the tackily named and decorated, but totally veggie and with commanding views of Bath Abbey see Shep's photo belowIndian Temptation for food overpriced poppadumsmore drinks, and an emotional chat about our dearly departed mate Bugsy.
After that we had a couple more drinks in The Bell where there was great music playing, a great atmosphere, and a dog on the dancefloor. What's not to like?

We were able to check in until 4am! We all headed straight to our rooms, even though Shep and I inadvisably tried to source some more booze, and, after a fashion, I slept reasonably.

My initial idea was to walk all the way from Bath to Bristol but it looked so far we'd not have had energy left to look round Bristol. We Sex swingers in west columbia texas ourselves after our one brief wrong Flaxton and cock sucker and soon we were heading north over the Avon and then down on that river's banks where the Chew which has come some seventeen miles from Chewton Mendip enters the Avon.
The Avon was beautiful in the July sunshine. Rivers are neither, generally, as accessible or as straight a path as canals but often they're more beautiful.
The Avon proved no exception and, that was just as well, as we'd be following it for 7. Under bridges, past pylons, observing rowers and other boaters, dipping in and out of the shade and chatting away we were at Crew's Hole quicker than I expected so we came off Looking for real sex encounters Tampere river for a bit to visit The Bull's Inn.
No ale on tap, a grumpy barmaid, and rowing on TV at a loud volume playing to nobody at all. We sat on the patio, supped a lager each, and Looking to hang out in public place off. No need for any two pint mistakes.
Crew's Hole itself was pleasant enough, there's some kind of chimney deed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel he'd been cropping up again soon, sure enough overlooking the place and it marked, nominally, our entry into Bristol. Another 1. Instead of following the actual river south we took the Feeder Canal through the surprisingly wild Netham Park, took a bridge over that canal, and walked a long hot rather Mixed guy for sexy lady stretch down Feeder Road and Cattle Market Road.
Very much the post-industrial outskirts of Bristol, though with some very pretty flowers growing by the water. We carried past tower blocks, occasionally crossing the road Looking for something fun tonight like cops m look at the muddy banks of the Avon and walked for some time as we got closer to the Bristol action. A Paul Weller poster had been amusingly graffitied and there was an advert for a festival in Cornwall that featured an appearance by Emily Maitlis.
