About Me

My photo
70 now and our five wonderful years aboard our narrowboat Skyy seem along time ago. Jacquie, allowed me to build my replica three wheeler kit car, which was a great success. Now it's time to start on a bigger project and that is to make a good Triumph Stag even better, here goes.

The bus didn’t quite get us into the city centre as it took an around the houses approach and got stuck behind an illegally parked car, so we got of and walked the last little bit.
Motorists so inconsiderate!!!

Jacquie initially said how grey the city looked, but slowly the sun came out and the stone of the colleges took on a golden glow. The first college we came to was Trinity and it was open to visitors, we went in and snapped away with the camera, wonderful old buildings and gardens, hopefully not wasted on the young students. Many of the other colleges were closed to visitors, but it was possible to look through the arched porticos, defended by bowler hatted porters, into the beautifully lawned quadrangles behind. A museum or two and a glimpse of the Bridge of Sighs, named, I am sure after the one in Venice, through which prisoners had their last fleeting view of the outside world, as they crossed over on their way to prison, and we were ready for lunch

A little more sight seeing, down by the River Thames at the Folly Bridge and then the bus took our weary bodies a more direct route, this time, all the way back to our mooring.
