The Wimbledon Final July 8



This photo was taken at 1.30am as we had to leave our local pick-up point for Wimbledon at 2.30am.
I knew the forecast was for sunshine and showers so I went for layers inlcuding my ski jacket.
Our  group was made up of me, my mum and my two youngest children, Briony, 15 and 12-year-old Ben.

After arriving at Wimbledon at 10am we bagged our places on Murray Mount just outside Number One Court.
It was a long wait but there was so much going on that it didn't seem four hours.
We enjoyed a Pimms or two in between dodging showers under the brollies and my son did some celebrity spotting and got his picture taken with Blue Peter present Helen Skelton who was lovely.


He also managed to chat with Jeff Tarango.

Sadly, Murray didn't win and after his game ended we watched the Boy's Doubles Final on Number One Court.
We are hoping to go again next year - the tennis was such a small part of the Coach Trip adventure.

I wore:
Shoes - Converse (28)
Jeans - Zara (15)
Vest - Gap (5)
Blouse - Boden (4)
Scarf - Boden
