July, 2014 - CAMBRIDGE, UK

A one and a half hour train ride takes us to Cambridge, the home of son James and DIL Maria.  they gave us a tour of the city, including the College where Maria studied.  We took in a Shakespeare in the Park presentation of a Mid Summer's Nights Dream.  It was a great visit.

We arrive early and use the time to explore a Catholic Church.

It has some interesting Gargoyles, but other than that is much like the churches we have seen to date.

The Colleges of Cambridge University usually surround a private central courtyard.

Cornwall Pasties have arrived in Cambridge.

The streets are crowded with a mix of students and tourists.

Sandra, with our guides, James and Maria.

Students take tourists punting on the river Cam.  I did not know that Cambridge is name for the bridge over the river Cam.  Good old English logic.

Many of the Colleges have gardens that are open to the public.
