Into Cambridge

It was an up-an-at-em start to the day, I was walking the dogs at 7.30 and we had pulled pins at 8.30 and were on our way into Cambridge some 6 miles up stream.
 Passing the weed cutters at the Cam Conservency base at Clayhithe

 Our first and only lock today, Baits Bite Lock.

There was a crowd of cyclists at Baits Bite lock who were fascinated by what was going on.

 The lock behind us we head off following Matilda Rose under the railway bridge

 We passed this stunning example of a traditional wooden river cruiser - maintaining this must eat up a lot of time/money but what a cracker!

 The fallen and somewhat denuded willow tree at Fort St George Pub.  James of Nb Lucky Duck has been busy cutting back branches to allow safe passage for the rowers on the R. Cam.  The responsible Body, The Cam Conservancy, don't seem to have done a thing...

 Evidence of  James' efforts line the bank side

 Yarwood moored on Midsummer Common

Two boats down from NB Lucky Duck and opposite the multitude of rowing clubs
