Cambridge Day 3

Day 3, and another day to explore on my own! My wonderful friend Amy gave me some great suggestions of sites to see, so I took her first suggestion and headed on a bit of a trek out to Grantchester Meadows. It’s beautiful green space along the River Cam and there were lots of runners, cyclists and dog walkers! I even saw some sheep on the way! The meadow is featured in the poem "Watercolor Of Grantchester Meadows" by Sylvia Plath and a 1969 song by the British rock band Pink Floyd.

It was fun checking out some of the more local, quiet neighborhoods along the way!

Afterwards I went through the Botanic Gardens. It’s 40 acres and was created for the University of Cambridge in 1831 by Professor John Stevens Henslow (Charles Darwin's mentor) and was opened to the public in 1846.

The Winter Garden was especially beautiful this time of year!

I stopped for lunch and tea at the Old Bicycle Shop (delicious) and did a quick stop into the (free) Fitzwilliam Art Museum.

All in all I logged 9.1 miles of walking! My legs were killing me, but it was worth ti!

Cake Tasting Day

I’m a little behind on my personal photos, but I wanted to share some photos from our wonderful day of cake tasting and exploring! It started with some tea time and Jenga at Buzz, and then to our first cake tasting at Girl Meets Cake (the winner!). We loved the owner Misty and the cakes were A-mazing! We had some time to kill and we found this cool spot called FarmBrew Live- a brewery with lots of space for live music, gathering and all kinds of fun events! It would be so fun to come out here on a (warmer) day with a group of friends!

We then hit our last cake tasting spot and collapsed in a sugar overload! A fun and successful day!
