I woke up early(ish) to have a look around Oxford before I left, since the sun was shining.
I walked through town and over to St. Catherine's, my college for the semester I studied at Oxford, and it was weird how much I recognized, especially the library (no surprise there -- spent a lot of time in it!).
Oxford when it's sunny is quite cheerful and inspiring. Everyone is cycling around, off to a tutorial, to research something [probably] esoteric, or otherwise help to save the world in some way.
With Dave's surfboards in the back, we drove from Oxford to Lynmouth Tuesday afternoon, making it just in time to catch a lovely sky at sunset.
The coastline around these parts is pretty spectacular!
Lynton and Lynmouth are two little villages joined together -- Lynmouth at the water, with a harbor, and Lynton up the hill behind it. There's a great funicular line that takes you up to Lynton, but I think it only runs in the summer.
Very quaint little places, both, and we had a nice dinner at a pub in Lynmouth before planning the next day's adventures...
