We travelled up to London by train to meet up with some old friends Barry and Sue to visit the British Museum in order to see the Hokusai exhibition. As they are members we got to have a reviving drink in the members own cafe. We took the train with them home up to Huntingdon,one of the benefits of being able to break your journey with train travel,particularly useful if the break happens in London. The next day we visited St Ives where we first lived when we got married nearly 40 years ago. It was interesting to see how it had changed. More housing eating up the countryside,less pubs,more charity shops and the medieval bridge now closed to traffic making the town more pedestrian friendly.
The next day it was time to revisit Cambridge. A bit of punting along the Backs before a beer by the river. A treat was seeing the weed collecting boat go through a lock as we had never seen a boat go through. A walk past the colleges to the Fitzwilliam museum for some culture and lunch and then to the art deco cinema for a film and a cup of tea before the trip home.
For our last day of our trip down memory lane we visited Ely where Kate taught when we lived here. There is now a lovely tea room by the river and an antique centre. Thankfully we managed not to buy anything this time.
