Our day in Oxford was quite wonderful. Even the rain paused just often enough to allow our meandering and photography. One of our friends is a graduate of the university so we thoroughly enjoyed her insider stories, exploring her famous college, walking secret paths and retreating to warm and dry cafes for lunch and snacks. The colours of the buildings were a pleasant surprise, as was turning a corner to find a paddock of cows along the river. As we left, I said to my husband, maybe you should change careers and become a professor here and I’ll be your trophy wife!
