Did I mention we spent a weekend in Cambridge?!?
The grass that Roger Waters wrote about. Apparently if I stepped on it I could get in serious trouble. Really.
Along the back of King’s College, founded by Henry VI and completed by Henry VIII.
We are on a punt, which is a kind of flat-bottomed boat.
Syd Barrett memorial painting at The Anchor pub. David Gilmour, Roger Waters, and Syd lived in Cambridge and played around on the music circuit before they came together in London to form Pink Floyd. Actually, David joined after Syd left the band, but that is another story.
Front of King’s College. There are 31 colleges under the banner of Cambridge University. Trinity is the most difficult to get into. People like Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin are associated with Trinity. Salman Rushdie went to King’s.
We drove down for the weekend. We took a walking tour of the city to get oriented, then walked around the place to visit various museums, churches, historic sights, go punting, find ancient pubs, look at architecture, and see a couple of the colleges. It was the end of term, so students were jovial and occasionally drunk. We saw a couple different gents fall off their punts into the River Cam.
The following day we visited Anglesey Abbey, a Manor home with lavish gardens and room to roam or explore. Weather was pleasant and the kids had fun circumventing the large property.
My two lunatics on the grass.
It was Father’s Day at Anglesey Abbey, so I got me a piece of cake!
