Another of yesterday's shots showing Scudamore's Boatyard. Apologies for not having a today shot - I've been struggling a bit with my shoulder so I've been giving it a rest and not carrying my camera around. Which was a bit of a shame really as it was all go on Jesus Green. It's 'Caesarian Sunday' - the last Sunday before the exams start and the Green is invaded by various drinking societies including Jesus College 'Caesarians'. They dress up in fancy dress or stand around looking posh , drink A LOT, play fight and generally behave badly. Last year when the weather was hot the park was left in a truly disgusting mess and it didn't go down well with town or gown and the Senior Tutors were kept busy issuing fines. I sound like an old fogey - I don't mind a good party, I don't mind students standing around looking posh and drinking A LOT but there's something about this event which is everything bad about Cambridge students. Normally they add enormously to the richness of the town but this seems to be a new tradition and it's just a lot of being loud and unpleasant. It looks like a huge number of students but there are 10,000 altogether and 9,500 are no doubt busy working. On the other side of the Green Cambridge University Brass Band were playing a lovely concert for families - it's swings and roundabouts!!
In other news it turns out that the designer of our 'blind maps' died this week - hence the daisies - RIP Vernon McElroy.
