The Mill Pond, Cambridge

I grew up in the small town of Cambridge in England. Renowned for its historic architecture and prestigious university, instead I remember hazy summer days spent punting down the river in long, wooden and precarious boats with only a pole and a single oar to keep us from falling in to the reed-filled murky water, meeting friends on the scrap of river-bound grass at the Mill Pond, and cycling through the winding cobbled streets on my old rusty bike. _ _ _ Jenny, Cambridge, UK.
