This morning I was running a little behind, and did not get a photo of me in front of the house before we left to meet the coach for our drive to the shore. I even ended up doing my Regency curls in the coach:
I was also busily employed with adding a new ribbon to my bonnet:
I tacked it rather haphazardly, trying for a carefree effect. I'm not sure of the historical accuracy of the look, but I enjoyed it.
Our coach driver for the day was also named Chris, though not the same Chris as Day Two.
He very kindly slowed down a bit as we drove by these workers actively re-thatching a thatched roof, so we could all take pictures!
It's certainly not something we see every day as Americans!
Once we landed in Lyme Regis, our fearless tour guide Anne-Marie took us immediately down to the shore so we could experience The Cobb.
Anne-Marie showed us the house where Jane Austen once stayed, on a visit to Lyme Regis.
We got back "home" in time to do some exploring in Bath that afternoon, so I took the opportunity to visit the Roman Baths. It was definitely worth it! The tour was self-guided, with hand-held audio devices that gave you more info about the sights in and around (and under!) the excavated bath house:
Next I walked across town to VV Rouleaux, which I had been told I MUST visit. And I was not disappointed!
As it happened, I needed some ribbon to decorate my other straw hat to coordinate with my Blue Velveteen Bodice for Saturday. I bought some beautiful dark blue silk ribbon for that purpose, and several other lengths of various colors of silk ribbon for no reason at all!
