After a full day at the Royal Wedding in Windsor, and a leisurely (ahem) drive through the Cotswolds (um, I think it was the Cotswalds, anyway), we retired to my country house, Uplands, tucked away a mile above Bath in the hills. It's quaint but perfectly fitting for a young lady of my station.
Aren't my gardens lovely?
The town of Bath stretches out below. No one does quaint country landscapes like the English.
Getting ready to leave for the day...check out how tiny my seat at the back is. Imagine stayin' on that while zipping down the M4 at 140 clicks...
I was trying to take a picture of the cows pastured next to the house, but they started to amble away when they heard the noise of the motorbike.
Edy captures some pictures of the English countryside from our window. It was so quiet, despite the motorway down the hill, that I had trouble falling asleep, after the noise of London.

Dani's favorite part of Bath: visiting the Jane Austen Centre. Here Jane and I have a discussion about the ending of Persuasion...I'm not sure she couldn't have improved on it a little, and I think she sees my point.
Edy's favorite distraction: ice cream.
Gjertrud and I are at our favorite coffee shop, Amano.
We put the men to work. Geoff is cooking ginger carrots, Alex is stirring the gravy, and Jim is carving the turkey.
