On the Road . . . Bath and Cardiff

When visiting Bath, it's a "must" to visit the Roman Baths, built around thermal springs which have been supplying water for over 2,000 years.

The Blue Anchor, a 14th Century inn located in Cardiff, hosted our tour group for a traditional Welsh dinner.

A Welsh harpist provided entertainment during dinner and let us take pictures while dessert was being served.

After dinner, we went downstairs to the bar - can you picture anything more English than this???

During our drive along the beautiful Wye Valley, we stopped to see the ruins of Tintern Abbey, founded in May 1131 and written about by Wordsworth and Tennyson.

I had fun choosing this particular painting online that now hangs in my downtown office, from Wahooart.com, who sells canvas prints of art masterpieces. While the original is treasured in some art museum in England, my print http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/Opra/BRUE-8LHS4U, of this painting by Edward Burne-Jones is very much appreciated by my staff and clients. The print quality is really excellent.
