Yesterday Cath and I went to Cambridge for the day. It's only about an hour and a half from where I live so I've no idea why we haven't done it before. (The only time I've been there prior to this was for some MA tutorials but I'd never been into the actual city centre). It is such a great place full of little nooks and side streets, fabulous architecture, plus The Rainbow Cafe which is now one of my favourite places to eat. The weather was lovely too - sunshine, blue skies and fluffy white clouds. Not the easiest place to photography on a Sunday in May - there were a lot of people about - but here are a few pics anyway.
Punts on the Cam...
(No we didn't go in one - too expensive, and besides, we didn't
like being hassled by annoying undergrads
trying to drum up trade for their particular punt!)
Two versions of Corpus Christi College...
The Rainbow Cafe entrance...
Such wonderful food - sigh...
This was me trying and failing (twice!)
to get a decent shot of King's College
(founded by Henry VI in 1441)
... and this strange and wondrous object is the Corpus Christi Clock
- see more about it here.
(That's King's College again reflected in the glass).
