simply beautiful! Love the classic look on this.. where were these pics taken Giselle? I am curious!

Mireille - they were taken at the Roman Baths, just 30 miles from my house here in the SW of England at the town named - appropriately enough -Bath! It's one of the most treasured tourist attractions over here.
There's a website if you want to find out more
