It has been a terrific day. We didn't get lost. We didn't get in an accident. And I have been told by Prince Charles that he is enormously grateful for my support.
We started off the day in Bath. The Roman ruins there are a "must see" if you are in the Cotswolds.
After the Roman Baths we wandered around the city for a bit. We didn't have too long, because we still had one more destination to reach on this, our last day in the Cotswolds.
The owners of the B&B we are staying in highly recommended we got to a town called Tetbury. They said it was filled with some very nice antique shops. We encountered treasures like this couch and chair.
The yuck factor was pretty high. We didn't want to get near them, never mind buy them. Unbelievably they cost hundreds of pounds! Then there was the shop that had a room full of rather strange animals. All dead. There was this fox.
And this one.
The most disturbing item was tucked away behind the fox with the binoculars. I think he was hidden away so he wouldn't give small children nightmares. Peter Rabbit seems to have found a new way to deal with Mr. MacGregor.
Next we went to the Highgrove Shop in Tetbury. The proceeds of these shops go to support the Prince of Wales Charitable Foundation. I bought an organic cider and some Damson jelly. The cider will help take the edge off the long journey to Wales tomorrow. The jelly will be consumed when I get home. I'm not even sure what Damson jelly is, but I really liked the container it came in. I turned to Kath and said, "I think I'll buy some Damson jelly." Kath thought I had said "I think I'll buy some damn jelly." The look on her face was priceless.
Prince Charles thanked me. It would have been way more meaningful if he had shown up in person to express his gratitude. After all, he lives just a few miles down the road.
We finished off our outing to Tetbury with coffees and tea in front of a place called The Blue Zucchini. We loved the fact they had wool blankets set out to keep us warm.
We especially loved how they called them rugs instead of blankets.
Tomorrow we head to Wales. It will take about five hours to get there on the train. There won't be any Internet connection for our first two nights there, so I'll be taking a short blog break. I should be back at the end of day three of our walk. Unless we get lost.
