After my Jane Austen tour, we gathered up the kiddos & walked up Gay Street to Jane Austen's actual house. She lived at #25 Gay Street in Bath. Now it's a dental clinic, but I still took a picture in front of it. Just passed Jane Austen's house is the Bath Circus. No, it's not a circus with lions & tigers & bears, Oh my! It's called the circus because it's apartment buildings (built in the mid 1700's) that complete a full circle. They were actually quite beautiful. It's rare that you see such old buildings in such good condition. Having them form a complete circle was really fun to look at too. It was architectural innovation for that time period. I'm glad we took the time to walk up there to see it.
It was raining quite hard by the time we got to the circus, so the girls were having a blast singing & dancing with their umbrellas. Cadence was singing: "I'm singing in the rain, just singing in the rain. What a glorious feeling!" Silly girl.
After playing on the grass in the center of the circus, we got back in our cars & headed home. Taya was still really sick & it was cold outside so I didn't want to make it any worse. When we got home, we stripped the kids out of their wet clothes & let them take a bath in the jacuzzi tub. Taya was SO funny! She was screaming in delight when the bubbles started shooting out of the little drains. They spent at least an hour in there. I was laughing SO hard at them!! We finished the night by bringing in some Chinese food. Then it was off to bed EARLY!! Yeah! I love being able to go to bed early.
