The good thing about out of town visitors is that you can get to places otherwise not on the daily commuting trail.
Ostensibly, the visit to Bath was a detour for lunch on the way to a nearby Casern where an afternoon meeting was scheduled.
In reality, I think it was because of a desire on the part of the group to have lunch here –
Lunch was delicious, the meeting was productive and I got to drive home.
Sigh! (Sorry about the cat hair of envy across your screen.)
