Amidst the Dreaming Spires Again ...

Hi Everyone,

It's Day Four of our sojourn amidst the dreaming spires and it looks like the sun will be shining for us again today. Yesterday we visited the Pitt Rivers Museum - we hadn't heard of it, but as it's very close to where we're staying at Keble College, we thought we'd pop in on our way to the Ashmolean. Four hours later, we finally managed to tear ourselves away - it was amazing; stuffed full of fascinating artifacts ...


After a spot of lunch, we went on to the Ashmolean Museum, where there was a wonderful exhibition called Great British Drawings. My feet were very weary by the end of the day, but my head is full of ideas and inspiration. I am also full of cakes and pies, but let's not go into that!

Once we've fortified ourselves with a delicious breakfast in the Great Hall ...

... we're off to check out a couple of interesting shops which we noticed yesterday, possibly have more cake, then head off for the highlight of our stay - a tour of the Bodleian Library. We booked this months ago and we're SO looking forward to it :o)

Thanks for popping in today, have a great weekend wherever you are and I'll see you again soon.
