Cambridge


This weekend was an important first, a true family occasion that involved a little travel, a lot of fresh air, around 15,000 good spirited people, an eclectic mix of musicians, at least one giant willow fox, over-developed Olympiads on stilts, Pimms in the sunshine, tents, sunsets by special order. And here are the photographs to prove it.







 
Yes, it’s been a while. Seven years and three grandchildren since our last visit. Now the little ones are old enough to share in the fun too. A fabulous, family festival that we hope to make a habit of enjoying in the coming years.


It was all over far too soon.

    1. It was, and they did, Vicki. A wonderful four days to treasure.

  2. That looks like great fun. Was it the folk festival? Glad you had some sunshine for it. What did your granddaughters make of it all?

    1. Yes Christine, it was the folk festival, although the range of music these days, extends way beyond the folk genre. Our granddaughters absolutely loved it, and had a wonderful time.

  3. It was chucking it down on Sunday afternoon. They don't call me "Mr Brightside" for nought.

    1. Yes, Rog. We got caught in that lot. Not a great finale to the weekend, but what's a drop of rain, anyway?

  4. The rain doesn't matter as long as you all enjoyed being together as a family - and it sounds as though you did.

    1. Somehow, Nell, it wouldn't have been complete without a little rain and mud. A wonderful introduction for the girls.

  5. That certainly is an overdeveloped Olympian - yikes! Sounds like a great festival - I love Cambridge :)
