After I dropped Henry off back at his place and said my goodbyes, I popped into Cambridge to see a good buddy of mine
What’s funny is
- she’s an Aussie who I’ve known online for years, but I had to wait to get England to meet her for the first time as she moved to Brisbane before we could catch up!
- she’s only been in Cambridge for a few months, but she acted as my guide (even though been in and around Cambridge many times, I’ve hardly ever stopped there, and never as a tourist

I decided to change my running shoes as the ones I got last year are really for running on the road/paths, and I no longer do that – my running, even in the UK, is all trails.
So I picked up some rather snazzy Hoka One One (pronounced on-ey on-ey) which are more cushioned and also famously good for Achilles issues, and went out for some runs Read More

I decided that we needed to combine some exercise with lunch and some local history.
We’ve been here before when Henry was very small and Ella puked ice cream on the immaculately manicured lawns.

I’ve been meaning to go to the North Kent Coast to hunt for fossils in the Eocene (50-55 million year old) London Clay
The trouble is, the clay beaches aren’t the most attractive that Kent has to offer, they’re kind of a pain to get to.
But armed with some basic tools, my hammer and some bags, we set off aiming for the falling tide – the scent of sharks teeth and other marine fossils in our noses.

Of course, the weather breaks within days of me arriving!
So we’re stuck inside for a day or so, but soon get bored and go out for a walk.
Classic holiday – Oldbury Woods.

Finally made it back to England to see the kids after a crappy start to the year where I had to skip the trip over the winter.
It had been a very warm summer in the UK and when I got there it was 35 degrees and everything was so dry!
Anyways – onwards to the pictures! Read More
