Summer Holiday - Day 13 and departure

Day 13: Cambridge-   a university town filled with students and their bicycles, Gothic architecture alongside modern buildings, churches and colleges, wide open parks and public spaces, open markets, street performers and punt boats on the River Cam.  Beautiful and exciting, yet with a peaceful charm that made me want to stay longer...or visit again...



Catholic Church of Our Lady and English Martyrs








Jesus College
 




The Church of the Holy Sepulchre (aka The Round Church)











                             

Left Cambridge by train to Audley End where Paul's sister, Sue drove us to Saffron Walden for an excellent dinner of Turkish food. Train back to Enfield. And for one last time the familiar walk down Ordnance Road past the shops, restaurants and houses to the flat.

Day 14: packed clothes, souvenirs, tea, oatcakes, ginger nuts and a bag full of memories for the trip home.
Day 15: back to Heathrow airport... farewell to London with heartfelt promises to visit again... thank you for the days...
