We had planned a trip to London to walk round Olympic Park and the canals but, after waiting for nearly an hour for the coach to Stratford, we decided that, as the M11 was blocked and also the A14 from Diss, it was unlikely that a coach would arrive. Quick change of plan and took the Guided Busway to St Ives - this turned out to be as long a journey as the coach to London but was unevetful. The journey gives some great views of the new buildings and constructions at the Addenbrookes' Site. When we got back to Trumpington P & R we found we had a flat battery and had to call out the AA to start the car before we could get home. Not a day that went well but everyone was very good tempered about it and the light in St Ives was beautiful (next blog)!!
