St. Hilda's and the River Cherwell

This week I went punting with my dear friends Aya and Anne-Marie!  Anne-Marie was part of St. Hilda's College at Oxford University when she did her Bachelor's Degree, so as an alumna she she had access to the College's punts!  We took out a punt for a couple hours on the River Cherwell in Oxford and drifted past the beautiful scenery from St. Hilda's and through Christ Church Meadows.  We stopped at one lovely spot in the river and had a little picnic in the punt as well!  It was so peaceful and lovely!  There were hardly any tourists or other students out at all, so we had the whole river almost to ourselves!  Afterwards Anne-Marie gave us a little tour of the gardens in St. Hilda's, it's not every day you get to see the inside of a College!  (in fact, practically never does one who is not part of the University ever get to see inside a College....)

Here are the pictures of the lovely day!!
