Cambridge 2013

After Burleigh we drove on to Cambridge, a city we have visited before and spent perhaps a week in in 2009. Our campsite this visit was on the River Cam, among the narrow and other boats, about a mile and a half from the old city. We decided to walk in, look at the shoppes, and have a pub dinner.
Another interesting wild-camping site

New line of Doctor Who bakeware; daughter
Rachel duly notified

Art nuvo storefront

Impressive full-size glass fiddle in a gallery

The very famous Corpus Clock and the
Chronophage (look it up); "mundus transit et
concupiscentia eius
"; accurate for a second
or so only every five minutes; there were
people there videotaping it; the work of sculptor
John Taylor; Stephen Hawking unveiled it in
2008; pretty captivating, really

King's College Chapel, unveiled, presumably, by Henry VIII;
see the 2009 posts from Cambridge for more
