I don't know how it is where you live, but around here there are just too many outdoor events taking place in July. They want to catch the best of the weather, but must squeeze everything in before families go off on their holidays in August.
There's a great Sunday market in Cambridge (in fact there's a market every day) and I thought I'd wander around and take some colourful photos.
I can never resist taking a few snaps of the Cambridge bikes and the posters that adorn almost every railing in the centre of town - more events for July! And you might notice the natty pink saddle cover which is advertising....
….the Race For Life, a 10Km charity run for cancer charities. Several people I knew were taking part - and I didn't spot any of them amongst the crowds of runners!
Some were serious runners....
…..others not so serious!
I was making my way to see a very special small garden which is only occasionally open to the general public. (Yes, of course you'll be seeing more later in the week).
Going back through town I noticed a mixed-up reflection of King's College Chapel in the window of a shop selling college rugby tops.
There's been a free music event on Parker's Piece all weekend. On Friday night there was music from Kid Creole and the Coconuts (remember them?) and a firework display to end the evening. On Saturday afternoon and evening there was more music including lots of local bands. And today it was Cambridge Mela, a celebration of all things Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi.
A lot of wonderfully colourful dancing...…
…..as well as more modern sounds.
Oh yes, and there was one of the University's gardens open too - one I've been wanting to see for a long while. We'll catch up with most of these events more fully during the next few days. Now I'm going to put my feet up; I reckon I've walked about ten miles today taking in all that lot!
