Boats in the mud at Maldon (River Chelmer) waiting for the tide. Essex is where Mum's Poynter family came from. Maldon is near Mayland, Southminster, Asheldham, Dengie & other places relevant to them. Found a grave of g g g g grandfather Samuel Poynter in Asheldham churchyard who died in 1746 !! Amazed that it was still in quite good nick.
Christ's College, Cambridge. The colleges all charged entry to have a look around. We weren't there long enough to warrant it, so had to peep through archways at courtyards & quadrangles.
Any place as famous as this is chock-full of tourists, but we had a lovely time wandering around & getting lost (we're good at that). There was a very large market in the town centre & we saw many of the famous colleges, although they are quite scattered and we were on foot -the car is just a hindrance in these towns with narrow streets and hardly any parking.
