London, England - Mint Polo in the Park 2013

On Saturday my friends and I made the annual trek down to Hurlingham Park for a day of bright summer sunshine, polo ponies, and lots of champagne at Mint Polo in the Park. We staked out a spot early in the day in the Pommery Champagne Garden and kept the bubbles flowing all afternoon. 

The polo matches began around 2:45pm with teams from Moscow, Beijing, London, Buenos Aires, Abu Dhabi and Sydney participating for the Park Trophy.

We just couldn't stop smiling about the fact that we were in London and there wasn't a single cloud in the sky the entire day ... 

... and it was hot enough to wear summer dresses without layers of sweaters piled on top.

Then we participated in the ceremonial stomping of the divots ...

The party continued until 8pm in the evening and it was a great day had by all. If the weather is nice, this is a fun annual event to attend, and only about a fifteen minute cab ride from central London to the grounds.
