    St Ives: Market Town

    June 25, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    St Ives is a cute little river town that used to have a sheep market on the main street square. Now it is used for a street market selling food, crafts, household items, etc. The architecture has a Dutch influence. We ate a typical British lunch in the local church on the square. Fish pie is very filling, and nothing to write home about, but it is an active church and we wanted to support them.Read more

    Houghton Mill on the Great Ouse River

    August 19, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Various mills have occupied this site since 969. The current Mill was built in the 17th Century and enlarged in the 19th Century. It has 10 pairs of grinding stones. The mill was decommissioned in the 1930s, and after WWII it became a Youth Hostel. When the lease expired, the town bought it and gave it to the National Trust. It now operates again, grinding flour from wheat raised on other NT properties as a fund-raiser.

    The last picture is of something funny we saw when driving home from the Mill!

    A Little Break in Upwood

    August 30, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Another patch of grass to stretch out on about halfway through the ride with this phone booth turned lending library. My legs are tired, and the headwind is strong, but I'm still going! Enjoying the sun and flat terrain today.

    I made it to Cambridge after a few more hours. The last 10 miles were on an amazing cycling route - National Cycling Route 51, which is like a bike highway with no cars, only the occasional fast double-decker busses that whoosh by in guided tracks that follow the bike route. I was happy for a flat route with no complications and only a little wind!

    PS. I am starting to feel confident enough to stand up and cycle with the load on the bike - a nice breakthrough today :)

    Breakfast at Dad's then set off to Peterborough. Stopped at a reservoir on the way and walked a fair while around the lake. Had lunch there - Bwie with Cwanbewwy on Bwown Bwead! On to the hotel in Peterborough where Moyra was waiting for us. A few drinks in the bar then explored the local area - not much to see. To our rooms to fweshen up then we met Moyra in the bar for a few more before Dad & Jen joined us for the Indian buffet - not too bad. Early night.Read more
