The good news is that he was fine on Sunday - we think that as well as not tolerating Lamb he can no longer tolerate Pork which we had both enjoyed eating the previous evening!
I am still in a Mediaeval mood with the page I have made for Art Journal Journey - I am loving Valerie's Autumn theme - again I started this while away.
I took some Paper Artsy stamped images with me and I used Autumn coloured Coloursoft pencils and part of the flyer I used for my last page.
I drew in some patterns with a gold pen and used a small circle punch to add some circles cut from a magazine.
As I mentioned in my previous post the exhibition was amazing but so was Cambridge! It is probably about 20 years since I last visited but the architecture is so beautiful.
We started our day by walking from the railway station into the town looking for an information centre. On the way we passed Carluccio's so once we had some leaflets and a map to peruse we headed back there for coffee…and biscuits. You may remember that in last weeks T post I showed you Carluccio's in Lincoln - the space in the Cambridge cafe was so much airier! The coffee and biscuits that I am showing you while I join Bluebeard and Elizabeth for T Stands for Tuesday….
…were just as delicious...
…well, actually hubby had tea and I had a latte.
We didn't eat all the biscuits - I wrapped some up for another day!
We headed for the Fitzwilliam Museum stopping on the way for a peep at Peterhouse college, the oldest college
Yes, that's me getting my camera out..
….and there's hubby.
On our way back into the town we looked in on Pembroke College...
….the gardens were beautiful.
We walked on to Corpus Christi College
We looked through the railings at St Catharine's College
I loved seeing the bicycles lined up everywhere!
We walked on to probably the most famous college - Kings College, founded by Henry VI and completed during the reign of Henry VIII
The carvings are beautiful but we were too late to go in….or were we?
We went off for coffee and returned at 5.00pm to join the queue to go to Evensong - the guide on the gate had tipped us off that it was sung Eucharist - well we weren't about to miss out on the chance of such an experience!
We didn't have to wait long and while we waited I took some photos.
I even caught sight of a punter on the river.so, we went in…no photos obviously but I can tell you that it was a very moving experience - the Kings college Choir lived up to our expectations!
When we came out it was getting dark - we went around the back of the college as hubby had stayed in the queue before the service.
We could hear music coming from another chapel but I have no idea what is is called.
We were just in time to see some of the choir heading back to their school.
We headed back to the station by a different route that we had taken earlier - a lovely end to our day!
I will try to organise some more photos for a scheduled post later in the week!
Thanks for looking, Chris
