Cambridge

7 February 15      Cambridge.  Cloudy and dull.

I didn't take many photographs around the city as it was very dull.  We spent most of the time in
the Polar Museum at the Scott Polar Research Institute, and the Fitzwilliam Museum, then finished
with a visit to King's College Chapel for the evensong service with the famous King's College Choir.


The Polar Museum.


Replica of the James Caird, the boat which Shackleton sailed 800 miles from
Elephant Island to South Georgia to get help for his stranded comrades.
This replica was built in 1993 by Trevor Potts of Kilchoan, Scotland.  He named
it the Sir Ernest Shackleton and, at Christmas of the same year, he set off with
three other men - Rob Egelstaff, Vic Brown and Chris Smith - to re-enact
the explorer's historic journey.
