So far my experience in London is very difference than my last stay.  I think it is because I realize I didn’t take advantage of all of the opportunities to explore a new place.

Today we went to Cambridge and along with exploring the college town we went punting.  When Whitney asked if I wanted to go punting she had to then explain what punting is: boating in a flat-bottomed boat with a square-cut bow.  We were smart enough to hire a punter.  Otherwise we would likely have been in the river.


I have to say punting was one of the best ways to tour the city as Jack told us about each of the colleges and the bridges as we reached them.  At 16, Jack was quite knowledgeable about Cambridge and all of the colleges in town.  This was a relief because when we were heading out Jack was distracted by the swans and didn’t want to leave the dock as the swans were bringing their babies closer.  He would have preferred to feed them Tom’s bread all afternoon.

Instead of traveling down the river and back we decided to hop off and finish our tour by foot.  First we had what Whitney called our best meal out.  As we walked around we found the candy store and Whitney was literally a kid in a candy store.

We would have shopped more but it began to rain.  Surprise, surprise.  But before we got home we marveled at some of the architecture.

We had to run in in the rain to the train but were back in London.  Whitney planned today’s outing.  Well done, Whit!
