One must be flexible

Due to Christ College not having the hall and chapel open today we had to change tack. Oxford has way too many fine looking buildings resulting in way too many photos taken.
We began the day with a great breakfast at the guest house then off to St Mary's Church. A great building with amazing stained glass windows and a climb able tower. There is a warning about the 120 odd steps but it fails to explain how tight and narrow the staircase is, but the view is well worth the effort.
Next was the Natural History Museum and Pitt Rivers another amazing building and some great exhibits. After a spot of lunch we wandered round and decided to visit the Ashmolean.
Here we viewed some amazing 17th Century embroidery -wondering get if any of the pieces will make an appearance on the tour....
We then checked out the Pre Raphealite paintings before being asked to leave as it was closing time! 2 squirrel were spot on the way home!
Tomorrow looks like
