Half Soaked!

By Glostopcat  
Todays upload is especially for Silly Sunday. When I visited the botanical gardens at Royal Victoria Park in Bath I came across this strange looking fellow taking a bath outside in full public view. It was a reasonably warm autumn day so I guess he was there to soak up some of the suns rays! He obviously likes it in the gardens as I saw him several months earlier, back in August see v3 he was doing exactly the same thing soaking in the bath whilst reading a book and enjoying a glass of white wine!Grin

It is obvious that since you saw him here back in August Ed,
and the position he is in,that the poor chap has froze to death.
I am surprised no one has given him the kiss of life !!

I see that you came back for a second look at the Women's Institute's 'person in a bath', Ed?
I now have to expose you as being a bit of a Voyeur - the 'fellow' you refer to is not of the male gender - but is the WI's Lady in The Bath BlushBlushBlush
I also see from V3 that you were obviously hiding away in the edible plants, to get your images of this poor lady, trying to enjoy a peaceful time with her book and glass of bubbly. Shameless..!
I am seriously concerned about your habits, Ed. A single image, hidden away in yesterday's upload - and today, no less than three... what are we to see tomorrow, one wonders? Blush Blush Blush

A room with a view but some central heating issues at this time of year...
Plus if I had chard growing from my bathroom floor I would suspect rising damp...
Thanks for the laugh.
