Luck was with us over the weekend. I let our friends Jay and Michael know we'd arrived and would soon have the car. Turned out they were going to be in Cambridgeshire over the weekend.

Into Ely on Monday ready for me to hit the road on Tuesday. Concerts to go to people to see!! Michael, who is from US couldn't quite believe I was seeing Amanda Shires and Jason Isbell? Not bad for an old bird.
Sadly, only saw Mum and Dad this time.

Glad they made it down in time from their boat blacking at Earith. Turns out, amongst other things, we are all in agreement Tom Cruise is not Jack Reacher.
