A busy but relaxing trip up to Cambridge on Friday, followed by the Backs on Saturday morning (four Clare alumni and one postgraduate student from Hughes Hall). A chilly return to Ely, arriving just before dark. Weather somewhat overcast, cold & windy, but it did not rain. Not much flow on this bit of the system, at least.
Captions are above the photos to which they relate.
