Tourist In Cambridge #3

I have been wondering whether to continue these Tourist in Cambridge posts after summer ends, but then I remembered Autumn is on its way and the colours will be too good to miss.

We are in a transitional period when everyone is getting excited about Pumpkin Spiced Latte arrivals at Starbucks, autumn TV shows are starting and I want to stay in and make all the crochet blankets. Students will be back within a couple of weeks when the leaves start to turn, and the city will feel vibrant in a different way.

Living somewhere with such a transient population took a while to get used to. 8 years later, it’s one of the things I love about the city; it oscilates between tourists, students and professionals. It wouldn’t be the same without any of them.

So let’s say so long to summer in Cambridge with some pretty photos then eh?

I mostly spot and photograph flowers in the cottage gardens around the city. G and I saw a cheeky chicken on the run near this cottage. 2 hours later we saw him again being chased by a local pub landlord.

The boathouses along the river are painted all different colours and display the crests of each college.

If we ever left Cambridge, G says he will miss the river and watching the rowers. It’s so peaceful (except when they are racing and the cox is shouting!).

The market square is a place I always recommend to blog readers who email me about where to go in Cambridge. We are lucky to have such friendly traders and a great cheese stall. Who doesn’t love a cheese stall?!

I spotted this mannequin covered in Scrabble tiles as part of a community art installation in Cambridge. I found it slightly creepy, but the words distracted from that……..

We are all in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars…………

I think I’ll leave it there today.

Toodles!
