Our Day In Ely, Cambridgeshire

Ely is in the Fen Lands of East Anglia.  This is all land that has been reclaimed from the sea and marshes, much like the Netherlands.  The land is flat with wide open views and vistas of the sky, criss crossed with dikes and canals.

Ely sits atop a high point with Ely Cathedral being seen for miles around.

You can't not have one meal of fish and chips while in the UK.  Here my BIL and I are dining al fresco, very al fresco, as the showers kept coming on and off.  There was a very big willow tree right there that kept us nice and dry.

The town market.  Also several nice charity shops where I found two lovely sets of knives and forks with the white handles.
