punting on the cam

Today the weather was fabulous and we went punting in Cambridge with our American friends Kim and Jay.
Pushing off on the pole took a real knack, which Kim and I didn't spend much time perfecting since it was much more pleasant to drift along while the men met the task with gusto.

After a day in Cambridge, we took the train up to Ely and went to evensong at the cathedral, then had beer by the river. I think every flower in Cambridgeshire was blooming. Not a bad day, really.

It's true! My friend down the street planted some things in his garden two days ago, and they're already an inch high and leafy. He's very excited. I also saw several sunburns.

I was a post-grad in Cambridge and we had the best time punting. If you can make it down to Granchester, there are many delights to be had picnicking in the orchards.

Oooh, thanks for the tip! Is Granchester an easy walk from Cambridge or would we take a bus?

It's a bus ride, I'm afraid. Or a whole day in punt if you can manage it! You're not allowed to take your own food but their cream tea was pretty good if I remember correctly.

Yay! Actually, I only seem to own about three t-shirts at the moment: this one, a green one with a hamster face on it and a Meg Hunt bright orange thing off Threadless. I think I need to do some shopping or something.
