Cricket in Oxford

Hamish and I go to see a university cricket match in a sunny Oxford park.

We begin by jumping on a train at Reading and heading for Oxford. Once there we walk into town and pick up some provisions, beer and sandwiches for lunch.

As we walk to the cricket ground in a park on the other side of town, we pass students in full gowns about to take exams in some of the colleges.

We're lucky with the weather with clear blue skies as we find an open area on the grass to settle down, open a cold beer, eat lunch, take photos and generally laze away the afternoon watching the match.

At the end of the match we walk back into town for a pizza and wine before heading home the way we came.
