"Her daily expressions were no longer, "I wish we had some acquaintance in Bath !" - Northanger Abbey
Well as you know if you are a regular reader of my blog, I have been sewing a regency outfit in preperation for the Jane Austen Festival. It went through many erm...changes till I found a combination that I liked, even having to make a last minute change after looking at the weather forcast. The weatherman was wrong BTW. It was warm enough I needen't have made a spencer. Oh, well.
We had to take the bus into Bath. got many requests for photo's along with the never ending "why are you dressed like that?" even got asked if we were 'on TV'. lol!
Arriving quite early (although there were some people already there) we had a chance to mingle and talk to the other 'promenaders'. Everyone was very friendly and didn't mind having their photo taken. I got quite a few photo requests myself.

As well as several people from various parts of the world. Including America and the Netherlands

|the ladybird wing like slope of the jacket is nice|
There was a display by Steps in Time of dancing.
Lots more chatting before making out way to the guildhall.
|Now, which way is it?|
|Me rushing up stairs (I was hungry after all that walking)|
Had a cup of tea before heading back to our accomodation. The next day we didn't have tickets for anything but on our wander round Bath quite enjoyed trying to spot people in costume.
Part 2 - coming soon.
