A Short Day …

Or a long night.

Today is Winter Solstice. The shortest day or the longest night.

This is the sky at about 8am on one side – as the sun is rising behind the buildings and trees …

And the moon is still in the sky on the other side, the buildings are lit by the rising sun.

I went for a run on the lawn in front of the Royal Crescent …

Mummy likes her new approach to photographing me run because she doesn’t know how to focus on me and let the background blur – she has accepted that my movement is actually quite interesting.

After a run, we went back to get Little Tyke & Co. Unfortunately, I got left behind in the room while they went for breakfast. Then we went for a walk around the nearby gardens.  I ran some more and Little Tyke kept running after me – he didn’t realise that I have four legs and I run like the wind – so poor Little Tyke had a bit of a workout. Eventually Mummy got a hold of me (the recall wasn’t working this morning!) and we walked on and saw some pretty sights.

Mummy loves trees (besides Christmas Trees) … she’s often taken by them more than monuments.

By the time we finished our walk, the sun was already starting to set …

Than it was time to get back to the hotel to check out.

Mummy wanted to share a dining experience with me since I could not go to any of the eating places in the hotel. We walked to Marlborough Tavern but alas they were fully booked – of course! It’s the Friday before Christmas! So back to the hotel we went and we ended up eating in the drawing room – which was all very nice.

And all too soon it was time to leave –

packing strollers, bags and me in taxi- we went to the train station and with some difficulty, we all managed to get onboard a crowded train.

The train was full – yes, it’s the Friday before Christmas! It was already dark by the time we got home. It was a full but short day.

May’s comment: All in all a lovely visit!

    Sounded like you all had a lovely time in Bath. And I have to say, Mini Tyke has the most marvellous cheeks!!! Gorgeous.
    The green in front of the hotel looks great: a wonderful running place. Molly would love it.
