We stowed everything after breakfast and got the van ready for travelling to Cambridge. This will be our last destination before we head back to Oxford, and before we set off we had a farewell cup of coffee with Billie and Shaun and said our goodbyes.
Cambridge is just over 80 miles away so we had a leisurely drive to the campsite in Cherry Hinton. It took us 1hr 45mins and as we were a bit early we had to wait until the 12 O’clock arrival time. We have been here a few times and it is handy for visiting Cambridge. You can walk, cycle or as we did on Friday get the No.3 bus opposite The Robin Hood pub right into the city centre (£8.60 return).
It is a very well kept site, is very quiet at this time of year and there is a great running route around the old chalk pit site just over the road from the campsite entrance.
We headed straight for the famous Fitzbillies for our breakfast. Full English for me and Angela had the vegetarian option.
With our bellies full we decided to have a bit of a wander around the city centre and some of the shops. The only thing I really needed was a new pair of running trainers. After doing a bit of research I decided that I wanted the Salomon SpeedCross 4 which I managed to get. Even better, after some discussion with the shop assistant I managed to get some discount
We were getting a bit chilly so we decided to head back to the van to chill out for the rest of the day.
I gave my sister a call when we got back to ask how my mum was as she had had a fall and was going to the Dr’s. She has damaged her right arm and cracked some ribs. Ouch!
Later that afternoon I had a phone call from Christ Church College, Oxford to confirm that I had a job interview this coming Monday. Fingers crossed.
