Beechen Cliff Revisted

In January 2007, our family visited Bath, England, where Jane Austen lived for several years in the first decade of the eighteenth century, and which provided an important setting for her novels Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. One of the things we did on that visit was to climb the steep steps up to Beechen Cliff, where Catherine Morland walks with Henry Tilney and his sister in chapter 14 of Northanger Abbey. I blogged about that walk on my Sabbatical Blog. In a post that went up yesterday, Ms. Place used one of my photographs from that visit on her Jane Austen's World blog to illustrate her rich and informative essay, "Beechen Cliff, the Arts, and Natural Surroundings."

Thanks to Ms. Place for her consideration in asking for permission to use the photograph.

Rob, thank you for your comments. Your photograph was so lovely and your blog was so personal, that I felt it was necessary to ask for your permission to use your image. I have read many posts on your Sabbatical site and relived my visits to England vicariously through your words and the photos of your lovely family. Thank you for your vivid memories.
