The Queen!

I had to hang right out of the window to catch a glimpse of her.

The members queued all down the street to make sure they were among the first in the ground...

Managed to find a great seat to watch a bit of cricket at the end of the day.

After working here through the winter a full ground is just an amazing sight.

  1. You have no idea how jealous many of us are of your job and office location. Lovely photographs and a great result!

    • If it’s any comfort, the fact that it was the last test here until next year has left me feeling down and deflated. The rest of this week is all about clearing up the mess. (We have got a T20 to cheer us up on Thursday though).

  2. Jeal as hell.

    I reckon that was a body double of the Queen, though….:P

  3. It wasn’t, it wasn’t!…although thinking about it I suppose it could have been, I didn’t actually see her face.
