In September 2010 I visited Bath again to visit good friends and attend the Jane Austen Festival events and the Farthingale Regency Ball.
On my first day Allison and I had a scrumptious lunch at the pump room with two lady writers who had just finished books inspired by Jane Austen! A great start to the Festival!
Here is yours truly wearing one of Allison's spencers and a velvet beret, and a lovely fichu I had found the day before in London at Grey's Antique Markets. We're standing in front of The Royal Crescent Hotel in Bath on our way to the Pump Room for lunch.
