Anyone for tennis?

Tennis was in the spotlight last weekend. We experienced it first hand as we spent Sunday at Wimbledon. We watched both finalists, on separate courts, warming up and admired their ability and Nadal's physique (that was probably more me than George!). We watched the junior men's finals at Court 1 and then relaxed on "the hill" outside Centre Court to watch the remainder of the nail-biting men's final. The English weather did not let us down and intermittent showers (see pics) were part of the day. Another essential part of the experience was, of course, eating strawberries and cream...really delicious.

Even if one does not particularly enjoy tennis, just the atmosphere, beautiful venue, well-organised events, friendly uniformed fire brigade staff, live brass band music, watching people sipping champagne, surrounded by their picnic baskets - is worth going to Wimbledon for.
