Saturday Snaps

If all goes to plan, Wimbledon Tennis Championships should begin on Monday. I live in South London, and Wimbledon is not really that far away – about forty minutes on the bus.

We took some friends from Ghana over to see the world famous tennis club. We wandered into the grounds and took some photos and went into the shop. Our friends had expressed interest in doing a tour of the grounds, but it would have worked out as very expensive. There was a group of us and I think it worked out as over £300 for us all to go on the tour.

Not wanting to split up, we contented ourselves with wandering over to the Park across the road and hanging out in the sunshine. We ate our food there and played sports all afternoon.

But I have a handful of the photographs I took that day.

RETHINKING RUNNING

In a burst of enthusiasm for the new year, I had a go at early morning runs all of last week. Yeah – it’s not gonna happen.

Missing sports – basketball and football. Missing going out clubbing. Missing the gym. Oh well – is it what it is. I have weights I use at home and I’m trying to walk at least the basic 10,000 steps a day. I just don’t wanna feel like a vegetable.

What are you doing to stay in shape and keep fit during these lockdowns?
