Walking around… Cambridge

I’m revisiting a previous post this week from before the pandemic, to Cambridge, England.

I discovered some quaint streets and alleyways on my way to Kings College.

What can I tell you about Cambridge?

It’s on the tourist map as one of the most visited places in Britain.

It’s  famous for its University Kings College, Chapel and Choir. On Christmas Eve every year a service of Nine lessons and Carols is broadcast.

The River Cam runs through Cambridge.

Students earn some extra cash by hiring out small boats called “punts”and punting visitors along the river.

On a summers day the river is a colourful mass of punts.

Walking into the town centre through “the backs” by the river.

A variety of Spring flowers cover the banks. First with snow drops, then daffodils and bluebells.

As I reach the city centre Gothic architecture surrounds me.

Easter

A new beginning

Looking forward; don’t look back

See a better time…

It’s Easter and a time to celebrate new life and new beginnings; perhaps by reflecting on the events of the past year.

We will all have good and bad recollections of the year. 

But now that spring has arrived; a more positive feeling is here.

A symbol of spring and new life is the daffodil.  Seeing masses of daffodils stretching out into the distance whilst out walking through a park is truly inspiring.  Here are some of my photos from recent walks nearby. 


If you don’t live near a park, I’ve found a brilliant website with amazing virtual garden visits you can look at from the comfort of your armchair, whilst munching on your chocolate eggs!

It’s the National Garden Scheme they provide visitors access to private gardens in England and Wales and raise money for nursing and health charities with admission charges, tea and cake. Take a look at the following link for more details…
