Punting on the backs in Cambridge
With Nb Lucky Duck away visiting Birmingham, Matilda Rose and Caxton slipped quietly into Cambridge and occupied the ducks mooring on Midsummer Common. We arrived on Thursday last and left at lunchtime on Monday, enjoying an extended weekend in one of the best City's in England. On Saturday I went off exploring on my new bicycle, dodging and dicing with the traffic and the hoards of pedestrians and cyclists with the best of them. This is a very special place, it is SO alive, so green, so genteel, so historic and so fascinating and we enjoyed a great mooring right in the heart of things.
The R.Cam flows at the back of a lot of the colleges, hence the term, the backs.
