Off To See The Don

A day in Cambridge seeing Geoff and his family. It's been nearly a month since he retired, and even longer since I've been up to Cambridge for one of our regular afternoon drinks and eats :-p

Got there just before lunch, and straight off to the Regal. Wetherspoons, as usual, are kicking off their October Beer Festival in style, and there was a HUGE selection, including Butcombe Gold, Old Hooky, and Marston's Pedigree to name but a few.

So, after a couple of beers it was straight over to the Bun Shop for lunch, taking a leisurely stroll down Milton's Walk, with Geoff regailing us, as always, with the local history and significance of the pathway ;-)

Unfortunately, the ownership of the Bun Shop has changed since we were last there. So the food and wide selection of wines was somewhat lacking. However, we did manage a rather nice red, and afterwards descended on the Carlton Arms, Geoff's local, for a quick half before making our way back to the station.

All in all, a grand day out, and great to see Geoff enjoying his retirement, even if it means he's busier now than ever before ;-)
