It didn't rain until late..

Warning - a bit of a photo heavy post...
Our day at Wimbledon.

We were very lucky in as much as it only started to rain at about 4 o'clock,so we managed to get some actual tennis viewing in.
It was a pretty tiring day but was very enjoyable.
Here we are ready for the off...
After the very long walk uphill from the station to the grounds...(not that I'm complaining but we cabbed it back on the way home!)- we arrived
Wandered round the outside courts 
Obligatory photos by Centre  Court- notice the subtle colour co-ordination of outfit and flowers!




then it was on to our court - Number 2

We had a great seat and the weather held out for a few hours-then a break for a Pimm's and strawberries and cream

and all too soon- home time. Son wanted to get home to see the Euro game that was on at 8 o'clock and as it was raining and play was going to be off for at least an hour - it was nearly 5 o'clock by now - we decided to call it a day.it was a really good day - nice to spend a day with the boy. I managed a long tube journey too - which is a real achievement for me as I hate them !

Love the flower co-ordinated outfit & that you actually did have Pimms & strawberries!! I'd say the rain was a blessing in disguise if it meant that the boy got to see his footie match in the evening....you'd have been a bit miffed if you had to leave mid match otherwise!! TFS! :D
