Since Oxford was in our mission when we were here, we spent quite a lot of time there plus Shawni and I delivered Charity there for a summer program one summer, but we had never really been to Cambridge.
What a delight to be there the year they were celebrating their 800th year (although the first school goes back a thousand years).
The buildings defy description. The many colleges all seem to be surrounding churches which were obviously SO very important through the ages! King’s College is where what’s his name ran around the courtyard and beat the clock in Chariots of Fire. Dad/Rick tried to beat the clock before I got there with a camera, but failed. The spires, bridges, edifices built to the glory of God were simply incredible!
There are seven museums on campus. Here is one with a Darwin exhibit. Darwin spent “three of the most joyous years of my happy life” at Cambridge.
The bridges over the River of Sighs were nothing less than spectacular!
With gardens to match!
The details of this incredible place were impeccable!
Imagine how many amazing people have passed through the hallowed halls of this ancient place of learning!
