View of Bath Abbey and Bath looking south from St Stephen’s Church tower in Walcot compared with Hokusai’s Koshu Kajikazawa. The hill covered in the background fog is Lyncombe Hill and Beechen Cliff.

The little white dormers and chimney caps resemble the foamy waves but perhaps this is not the best match. Should I have gotten someone to stand on those trees and fish, or erect a electric/telephone pole and cast out lines down to the city?
