Cricket in the park!

This week I head out to the park to meet up with a friend of mine that’s been playing Cricket at the park for years.

Temp 26°C

 

First thing I noticed after parking my car are these gorgeous trees.

I didn't come to the park today to listen to music. I came to find my friend Avninder and watch him play cricket. The park is very busy today hope I can find him.  There he is, I found him right away.

The fun part about going to the park is the new stuff you see.  Like couples riding two person bikes.

Team AICC.  They were a great bunch of guys that made me feel welcome. They even explained the rules of the game to me.  Cricket is much more enjoyable when you know the rules.

In between innings I was able to meet the team and take their photo. They were a great bunch of guys that made me feel welcome.   It was a pleasure to meet them all. They even took the time to explain the rules of the game to me.

Batter up! I think that's the right term.

All in all it was a fun, busy day to visit the park. The weather was perfect and there was lots going on.

Until next time…
