Fellows Only

OK - move along, nothing to see here!   I'm just trying to get rid of the Valentine's things, so that it doesn't look like I've abandoned my blog ...

We had a trip to Cambridge yesterday to see our neice, who is an undergraduate at Peterhouse and she was kind enough to show us round the inner sanctums, or sancti, or whatever the plural is of sanctum.     Took a few snaps, of course .....

Peterhouse is the smallest and oldest of the Cambridge colleges (founded in 1284).

Hope you're having a lovely weekend!

Looks timeless - it's another world. Your niece is very lucky. Love the windows - very William Morris. Glad you had such a lovely day for your visit. Superb photos as always Chrissie.
