In 1981, my roommate and I went to Britain on summer vacation. With only our duffel bags and BritRail passes, we set out to see as much as possible. We happened upon several big summer events, including Wimbledon!

Since we were such big tennis fans, (I still am!) we were so excited to see some of our favorite players. We walked the historic grounds, ate strawberries and cream, and just took in the magic! I still have the t-shirt I bought that day!

Tennis great Ivan Lendl!

Me and Sally on the grounds in Wimbledon white (shirts)!

Tennis great Bjorn Borg!

Lovely ivy covered buildings and crowded grounds!
