May Morning [May. 1st, 2005|09:48 pm]
This year, I was feeling slightly older than in the past, so I decided to get up for May Morning, rather than staying up all night.

Hilary decided that she gets up at that time enough for rowing, so declined to do it on a weekend. That left just Dom, myself, and May Morning virgin Gillian. We booked for breakfast at the Grand Cafe for 7.30, and resolved to appear in college for just before 6.

I cycled to the Marston Road entrance, and after some fun with turning the late gate key the wrong way (one that I "borrowed from a friend"), I got into college with about 15 minutes to spare. On my way through, I shot a few nice pictures of college in the mist:

I'd forgotten how long it takes to do the walk, so only just got there before the choir started (but luckily with enough time to have a quick chat with Judith). The choir was harder to hear this year than in the past, which was a shame, but it sounded good from what I could hear. Hopefully those who received MMS's of the choir singing and a picture of the tower could make something out!

After that, we had time to kill before breakfast. We had a wander around college and the grounds, then around Christchurch Meadows (all very nice in the early morning sunshine), then headed off for breakfast at the Grand Cafe. Breakfast was very nice, but a bit slow and chaotic. I think next year we'll need to book earlier, so we can get a slot before all the staff are too tired to deliver orders to the right table....

Photos can be found here (smaller).

Head of the JCR Shop. Guardian of the tower that isn't the great one. Source of much college gossip. Many more things beside...
