Corpus Clock

Is this clock not absolutely stunning?! The Corpus Clock is located in Cambridge, on the corner of Bene’t and Trumpington, just outside of Corpus Christi College. We pass by it quite often now, but every time, I can’t help but stop to stare at the beautiful colors. The clock itself is plated in 24-carat gold. The other day, a little boy was standing in front, mesmerized. I loved capturing this small, simple moment.

Trinity at Dusk

Winding streets, bright lantern light. Exploring the cobblestones pathways of Cambridge, mulled wine in hand. I love this quiet, awake little town.

The Anchor

Riverside cheeseboards, tea, and cider. THIS is my new favorite place to grab a drink in Cambridge. We literally could watch the punts pull in and take off from where we were sitting; it was so lively, so charming. I could come here every single day. We we so content.

River Cam

I had such a fun time playing with (i.e. still learning to use) my camera along the Cam River the other day. We were right by Clare and King’s Colleges, and the lighting was simply stunning. It was so amazing to see all the punts out and about – it was a beautiful day to be on the water, and I have to admit, I was a bit jealous of everyone out there. Shout out to Vince for snapping the shot of me. I can’t believe this is where I live right now. Pinch me.

Market Square

Market Square, Cambridge. We were here on a Saturday afternoon, but these vendors are here EVERY day selling. My absolute favorite was the flower stand. It took a lot of self control to not buy ALL the flowers. The flowers and the cheese… two of my weaknesses. I love knowing that I can bike here whenever I want to during the week, to shop or to roam. More points for Cambridge.

Cambridge

Hello from Cambridge, our new home. After a few very chaotic weeks of moving, unpacking, and starting my masters, it was so nice to finely be able to take a day to wander aimlessly and explore. This city is so beautiful – quaint, cozy, a little mysterious. These pictures are from the area right around the famous King’s College of Cambridge University (Trumpington Street, King’s Parade). I will post more photos from the day soon. Enjoy!
