I knew if we didn't distract ourselves Herb would be inexplicably drawn to the coverage and that was more than my poor ears could stand . So prompted by this post by Celia about something in Cambridge we had yet to see, we jumped in the car.
We parked and partook of refreshment at the Grantchester tea room...see these pics from another visit...it really is a special place to go and relax when the sun is shining however we were on a mission.
The Grantchester to Cambridge walk is one of our favourites, all along the river..it really felt like spring at last. Then to the Museum of Classical Archaeology and wow....you open the doors to a very unassuming building to discover statues....hundreds of them.
A beautiful light room with casts of some fantastic Greek and Roman statues and friezes .....amazing. We whiled away an hour, reading about the statues. We had the place to ourselves. We will return , go if you are in Cambridge.
Then along the backs, this is Kings, to our favourite cafe for lunch....in a church that still has a chapel in use (sometimes the choir are practicing while you eat) the food is brilliant, really reasonable and it has a great atmosphere.
Finally a quick visit to the Fitz museum for the Quentin Blake exhibition......a tiny bit disappointing as it was small but we loved seeing the original sketches and water colours.... then a little more refreshment in the Fitz excellent cafe then back along the river again. You know who wasn't even mentioned!
Have decided to make this liberty quilt larger to use as a summer throw...(am of a certain age where duvets are causing me a heat prob) and the sun is really shining..... that's today sorted....happy weekend!
