Bath

Russ and I took a walking tour of Bath, to see places mentioned in Jane Austen's letters and novels. We also visited the Jane Austen Center. Bath inspired the names of some of the diamonds in Quilted Diamonds and Quilted Diamonds 2, like QD1 # 179. "Though it ended too soon, its conclusion was delightful too." Northanger Abbey, Chapter 14

"For six weeks, I allow Bath is pleasant enough; but beyond that, it is the most tiresome place in the world. You would be told so by people of all descriptions, who come regularly every winter, lengthen their six weeks into ten or twelve, and go away at last because they can afford to stay no longer." Henry Tilney in Northanger Abbey

The Gravel Walk

The Gravel Walk was where Anne and Captain Wentworth were finally reunited. . ."and soon words enough had passed between them to decide their direction towards the comparatively quiet and retired gravel walk, where the power of conversation would make the present hour a blessing indeed; and prepare it for all the immortality which the happiest recollections of their own future lives could bestow."  Persuasion Chapter 23

25 Gay Street  Jane Austen lived in this house in 1805-1806 with her mother and sister, after the death of her father. The Jane Austen Centre is just a few doors away.
