Day 4 – Cambridge

On this day, we took the train out to Cambridge.  The train ride was a good way to start the day.  The countryside was so beautiful and peaceful.  We walked from the train station to town.  On the way I got me a cup of latte that was probably one of the best I’ve had in my life.  Yum!  We visited King’s College Chapel first.  Ate lunch at a cozy English pub, where Francis Crick and James Watson first made the announcement of their discovery of DNA on February 28, 1953.  Then we walked through St. John’s College, down the Backs, up to Clare College.  Went into the Cambridge University Press bookshop.  But we did not feel very intellectual that day, so we did not buy any books.  After browsing through the market place, we made our way down to the River Cam to go punting.  We opted to have a chauffeured tour, so that we could enjoy the view and have a relaxing time without having to worry about keeping the punt from flipping over or running into the river bank.  It turned out to be a very enjoyable time.  That was our day in Cambridge.

We came in at the right time.  Someone was practicing on the organ, and the acoustics were amazing!
