Hotel in Cambridge is nice, in a small, two-star sort of way. The room is bigger than the one in London.
The view out the back is of the green buffer zone around the airport — hedges and grass and … rabbits.
There’s a paved footpath across the commons, and I took a walk in the cool of the morning.
The path takes you past a small Army Reserve training area, complete with an assault course, warning signs, and … rabbits.
Late that morning, I walked to Jen’s for a grant-writing meeting. Afterwards, she took me on a foot tour of Cambridge. We were going to get dinner at this posh restaurant she knew about, but we got caught in a T-storm and ducked into a little bistro across the street from this building.
Garmin says I did 9.6 miles today. I think that’s wrong. Google Maps says the distance from the hotel to Jen’s (plus my morning walk) covered almost exactly 4 miles (pretty much a straight line), while the Garmin swore blind it was six. Checking the settings, I find that some update or other wiped my stride length, so the Garmin was just guessing.
