11:34:26Chie and Erika on a bridge over the Cam, as a punter was busy climbing over.
11:43:59Walking along the Cam to Grantchester.
12:04:28Erika on my shoulders. A lovely day today. Perhaps a bit too warm for tweed!
12:19:13Chie and Erika walking along the bank of the river Cam.
12:29:26Unfortunately the camera on my phone failed to save this photo properly, taken on arrival at The Orchard.
12:42:56The menu at The Orchard, taking as I was queuing to order food.
13:13:49After a ridiculously long wait in the queue to order food, I finally got back to our table with scones which we ended up eating as a sort of starter because the savoury food would be a further wait.

13:16:26Me and Erika enjoying the Orchard.
13:21:40Erika with my scone in the foreground.
13:28:10...and now our main courses have arrived, so our backwards lunch can continue.
13:28:33Erika took this.
13:37:59Erika in the orchard.
13:50:33Obviously Erika's patience for sitting at the table eventually expired and she wanted to run around instead.
14:06:15Yes the apple blossom is definitely out. Although only just.
14:57:43We cheated on the way back and got a taxi into Cambridge, which deposited us outside Queen's College.
14:59:19We went on a brief tour of Queen's College, thinking it might perhaps instill some early academic ambition in Erika.
15:01:10It's rather lovely.
15:21:39After our tour of Queen's College we went to get ice creams, which we sat in this little park to eat.
15:24:13We decided to head back home after this - although it had been a fleeting visit to Grantchester and Cambridge it had nonetheless been a lovely one!
19:11:03Back at home now, where I decided to open the Genovese vermouth I bought there last Octber.
