Day 8 June 25, 2002
By Dan, Mary Jane and Scotty Hyde
Tuesday, June 25, 2002 Bath - Pump Room
We then walk over Pulteney Bridge. Our destination: Cromwell's the
candy shop on Pulteney Bridge that sells the tastiest truffles ever.
(For the uninitiated, truffles are bonbon-like candies made of
chocolate, sugar, and butter, and coated with chocolate.) To our
dismay - Cromwell's is no more. Sniff, sniff. But we make up for the
lack of truffles to buy. At a sports store on Pulteney Bridge we buy
a white England soccer jersey for Scotty.
We stroll down by the Thames, where Scotty plays in a "mini-maze."
We have a quick visit to Bath Abbey. We have coffee (Jan and I) in
the Pump Room, and the four of us share a glass of the famed
spa water. Dan and Scotty walk up to the Circus Crescent
(circular-shaped block with lovely townhouses). Jan and I
stay down near the bus stop and chat. We all take the bus back to the
parking lot and our little Skoda.
We skip supper tonight.
