Holiday Diary - Day 76

Today we drove to Oxford to have a look around. It was a bit further away than I expected (about 90 minutes) but it was worth the effort. We found a place to park near a Chinese Restaurant, where we had lunch before find our way to the bus stop to catch the tourist bus for a tour of the city. We saw lots of old buildings, gardens and statues.

Here are some of the photos we took today.

The shop where Alice bought her sweets

One of many churches

Sue wanted to get a shot of all the heads

Looking at one of the gardens through the gate

When those on the faculty were allowed to live off campus
they built some rather large homes
Most of the places we saw belonged to the University as it takes up most of the city.

The camera ran out of battery while we were on the bus and we didn't have the backup with us, but now we can't find the cable we need to charge the battery so it looks like we will have to use the backup camera for all future photos, at least until we can find the cable or buy a replacement.

Tomorrow we drive up to Coventry. Sue has heard back from Vic Minett and we have been invited to join her in the studio on Friday afternoon.

That's it for today.
