London Moonwalk 2012

Well, it’s been a couple of weeks since I last posted and I can honestly say I have no idea where the time has gone! One reason I can think of is that here in the UK we have been experiencing 2 weeks of unusually HOT weather!! So everybody has been making the most of spending time outside and generally relaxing in the sunshine. (Me being one of them!)

As you may remember I had been training and working towards completing my 3rd London Moonwalk and on Sat/Sun 12th and 13th May a group of friends and I travelled down there and completed the challenge in what was the Moonwalk’s 15 year anniversary. It was a fantastic weekend, here are some of the photos I snapped during the trip:

¬†Each year we hire a minibus to get our group down to London – it’s a great way to start the weekend! The monkey is our team’s mascot (He is always made a costume to match ours for the year!)

Our hotel, a few minutes walk from Kensington Gardens.

We spent the afternoon enjoying the sunshine in Kensington Gardens (I love people watching!)

Our walking group (minus my aunty Gill who took the photo) We chose to choose Jesters as our costume theme this year. We lost count how many times people stopped us to ask for photos!

Walking to Hyde Park in search of the Moonwalk Tent…

…the big pink tent…

Arriving at the tent (it’s the size of 2 football pitches!)

¬†Getting ready for our ‘zone’ of walkers to cross the start line just before midnight….

The group as we reached the London Eye…

Monkey at Big Ben!

Finishing the 13.1 mile walk in 3 hours 52 mins …

…and after a couple of hours sleep and a change into something a little less eye-catching!

It really was a fab weekend and we were able to raise money for some very good causes

Can’t wait ’til next year :)
