Cows sheltering under a tree, in the meadow below Ely Cathedral. Not the most clement spring day, but still a lovely sight. We are still erring on the side of caution in our strayings from home (because too many others are evidently not). But Ely makes a welcome change of scene from our small corner of Cambridge. And there’s the wonderful Topping’s book shop to visit. Small steps out of lockdown. There’s a longish way for us to go on to whatever is the new normal; but I think it is the same story for many of our generation.
