The challenges of travel
We had to change trains twice to get to Bath from Chester and the last one was particularly crowded. It was after 5 pm when we arrived and we were a little weary.
To access our keys we had to go to the foyer of another building and then we found the locked box with a combination lock was so far up the wall neither of us could reach it or read the combination.
To add that the foyer was dimly lit which did not help at all.
Solution? I lay my suitcase on the floor, Linda climbed on top and then used the torch on her trusty iPhone to read the combination and, at last, gain access for us.
Just as well the apartment was very nice, when we finally got there.
A magnificent Victorian dwelling with magnificent views out over the valleys and beyond.
We went early in the morning and it was so peaceful with hardly another soul in sight. We walked through some of the garden area and had a nice chat to one of the gardeners attending a rose bed. What a wonderful location to be a gardener.
The purpose of our visit was to see the Kaffe Fassett exhibition and we were not disappointed.
An extremely talented textile artist the emphasis here was his quilts.
He had drawn on inspiration from historical American quilts and done modern interpretations.
Great exhibition in a great location.
