Leaving the EA moorings at Pope's corner we had to continue in the wrong direction to the Lazy Otter before we could wind and head off down the River Cam. We thought we might stop at The Five Miles From Anywhere Pub at lunchtime but, due to the nicely spaced cruisers, there was no room at the Inn - perhaps every other one had left.
A very pleasant walk around Cow Hollow Wood although am I the only one thinking that this is looking a bit autumnal?
It was lovely to be off of the rather bleak and overgrown flood banks onto grassy tracks and woodlands
The boys appreciated it too
Baxter in particular absolutely loathes long grass, thistles and stinging nettles
So onwards into Cambridge
although not all is picturesque - some of these punts in the main tourist areas are being used as rubbish tips
with no attempt to clean them up - I don't understand why not
