Morning Glory

Morning, originally uploaded by Neorelix.

A common sight of a morning on the Cam is the college boat clubs out training. It's a timeless thing and makes for fascinating viewing as you walk the towpath and hear the coxes (tiny) yelling at the crew (huge). Each college has a boathouse along the river and here you can see, with the red doors, Lady Margaret (St. John's) with Queens' alongside. Licences are granted by the council for boat moorings and there a whole bunch of them, mainly narrowboats with a couple of Dutch barges, lined up all the way back to Chesterton. This is one of the cleanest. One of the downsides of such a seemingly peaceful river existence must be landlubbers like myself peering in and talking photos...
