Adventures: Cricket at The Oval

 photo oval10_zpsd95aeabf.jpg
Last Thursday I met The Husband at The Oval to watch the end of the Sri Lanka vs England cricket one day international. I've never really been to watch a cricket match before - well, I did once - when I was at university - but - to be fair - I don't remember much of the cricket, all I know is we had a good time.

We got ourselves some fancy-pants Pims and then some wine and beers and noshed on some indian-naan wraps, which are very delicious and un-diet.

Was very fascinated by the Spider Cam - which Husband informed me that the very first time this kind of technology was used was actually in South Africa at the Soccer World Cup:

I spent most of the game figuring out how to get on TV - 
But Warren persuaded me not to take off all my clothes and go streaking across the field -
And after that I couldn't think of any other way.

So settled for taking some selfies.

The Oval grounds have huge boards inside the stadium 
which explain the different cricketing terms for the noobs like me -

{People were staring at me while Warr was taking this picture.
it's ok though - because at least I have my clothes on.}

After the game we walked back to the station in the most beautiful sunset -

We walked right past a pub called The Beehive.

Ché: Lol. that pub is called The Beehive. Looks like it's buzzing in there.
*hahahahaha! lol. laughs at own joke*

Warr: Yeah! Total hive of activity!

Ché: No. No Warren. Don't do that. I already won this one.

First "real" cricketing experience: total success.
