    On to Bath and Plymouth today. We are all still enjoying ourselves, but we're getting tired. At 8:45 am we pass Newport. At 8:55 am cross the Severn Estuary. At 9:10 am we pass close to Bristol. David tells us about S.S. Great Britain, first iron screw propeller ocean going ship. Found in the Falkland Islands in 1970 being used as a coal hopper. Cary Grant, whose real name was Archibald Leish discovered by Mae West, was from Bristol. P\We pass Laycock, owned by national Trust, Harry Potter scenes and Pride and Prejudice filmed there. Camilla lives in Raybridge. She used to turn off at Junction 17 to get to Charles. She had an accident. Pressed panic button, Charles saw it and pressed his panic button, Royal Navy helicopters and gunships appear. Camilla's code name became Junction 17. We pass through little village of Pennsylvania. We do a bus overview of Bath. We tour the Roman Baths, then stop at a little shop for Cornish pasties. We sat at a public plaza adjacent to the abbey while we listened to a street musician sing "American Pie," and ate our lunch. I popped into the Pump Room to take a photo and use the toilet. We took some quick photos of the abbey and then caught the bus. At 1:00 pm we pass through the town of High Littlteton.Read more
