A day out in Cambridge

I decided to make yesterday I proper day out in Cambridge, so got the 10:56 in order to give myself some time for a look around the town. It was unfortunate that I had five teenage boys sitting close to me and making a nuisance of themselves for the entire journey. I spent some time walking around Cambridge including going down to the banks of the Cam.

I decided that since I would be eating outside anyway on a day like that, and lunch marked the switch of my attentions from “Town” to “Gown” that Parkers Piece was the appropriate venue for consuming my sandwiches. Sadly, in spite of the excellent weather, no cricket of any type was being played, while some folk  were kicking footballs about, an act of desecration given that this patch of land was where both Tom Hayward and Jack Hobbs learned to bat, and also where on a casual day out K S Ranjitsinhji got roped into three different games of cricket and made centuries in all three.

The visit to the Herchel Smith building went smoothly enough, and at the end I was able to make the business of paying travel expenses quite straight forward because I had taken the precaution of getting a receipt with my train ticket which I could give to them, so a cheque will be put in the post for me.

The train journey back was another less than satisfactory one, as having stood from Cambridge to Waterbeach, the only seat I could then get was next to three noisy kids.

Just the one picture this time, as I did not take any in Cambridge…
