Eli’s Fourth Blog Post


As recapped many times before, we have asked Eli to summarize the educational daytrips we’ve been going on by writing a short theme. I am then posting an image and a transcription of each theme as a blog post. Allow me to present our trip to Bath– the longest travel time in a daytrip we have taken yet (2 1/2 hours of travel each direction, and only 4 hours in the city)! This is Eli’s fourth post in the series.

I went to Bath…..
First I went to the Roman

Baths
. I liked seeing the

folded curses and I drank the

Bath water and I thought it

was super good. It tasted

like hot water with fizz.

Second, we went to the Bath

Abbey
. It was cool because

I did a cool quiz and got a

ruler as a prize.

Third, I went to the Jane

Austen Center
. I learnd

all about Jane Austen. I also

got a paper house. It was a fun

day!

Second, the final frame in that series:

Eli tastes the water at Bath.

Like Water From The Tap! But Fizzy!

Third, Lana’s reaction to Bath Water:

Lana tastes the water at Bath.

Like Water From The Tap. That's Right-- Tastes Like Hard Water.

Fourth, Finley giving a disquisition on the importance of the King Edgar Memorial slab in Bath Abbey:

    Hi Dalley family!

    I’m just joining the Dalley family trip–I’ve been in some other country since the start of the semester, I guess! I LOVE this blog! I can’t wait to show it to Declan! Eli, Declan received your postcard today. He liked it so much he put it on the refridgerator, where he can look at it every day.

    Miss you guys!
    Leslie, Brian and Declan
