Friday 19th June 2015………tennis and hikes!!!

It seems that all these airbnb places where I stay are just wonderful accommodations and they all have great beds…slept really well and had a slow and easy breakfast and then went to the new Tennis center in town for this

I watched two really great games these young women can sure hit that ball hard and the thoughts that went through my mind as I was watching were I wonder if my tennis hero Ashley, who is still only 15 years of age, would be able to enter something like this next year and then another far off thought was I wonder what would have happened if they had these facilities and academies when I was growing up…would I have been able to make the grade!!!    I enjoyed the tennis!

My next stop was about 40 minutes away
