Wearing the Cambridge colours

We were in Cambridge – surely we had to wear the right colours. 🙂

We took a trip to Cambridge last evening, to be sure we’re on time to meet a very important new friend – but more of that tomorrow.

Praewa (George’s godmother) went with us. She’s young and cool – and she wanted to share her pink earphones with us – it was too big for GeorgeIMG_7987 They fit me better but nah, didn’t really like the music.IMG_7991We stayed in our all too familiar Hotel du Vin because we know they are dog friendly.  IMG_8150The next day before we did any of the sight-seeing, Mummy said we must wear the right colours!   I got a Cambridge Blues scarf.IMG_8072And Georgie got the Kings College colours – because Praewa (his godmother) thinks purple looks better on him.  And he wears it proudly!!! Go Georgie!IMG_8045We soon realised that dogs – along with bicycles and radios – are not really allowed inside any of the colleges …IMG_8022So this was the only photo we took inside any of them.IMG_8020While there are lots and lots of old buildings and lots of history in Cambridge, one of the newest attractions is The Corpus Clock – described “a unique and strange device for measurement of time”.

IMG_7999Besides the colleges, Mummy really wanted to go to the Fitzwilliam Cake shop. Dogs are not really allowed inside even though we almost managed to get ourselves in there last evening.  They were apparently full but invited us to come back today –IMG_8043 And we did – IMG_8033Just so Mummy could try a Chelsea bunIMG_8037 When we were outside, we met Ludo and his Mummy – who reads out blog! 🙂IMG_8029We carried on to discover the sights of Cambridge before meeting Bow.

May’s comment: This is our third Hotel du Vin in two months.

IMG_8016 We love the art work that is so much a part the hotel culture.IMG_8014We tend not to be able to eat in any of their restaurants but the dogs are allowed in the bar area.IMG_8011
