Tennis and tequila
22.11.2012 30 °C
The day started with a fantastic lesson with Oscar. Aside from the smashes, I was okay. I might have taken my eye off the ball for a brief moment I'm not sure, but what I am sure of is those safety sunglasses (which thankfully safety Dave makes me wear) did a great job of protecting my eyeball, as the tennis ball made contact with my face at great velocity! At the end of the lesson, Dave and I took on the folks. We rose to the occasion and proved to be an unstoppable duo: Dave was the striker and I the sweeper.
Later we returned to the courts to watch some of the Mazatlan ITF Futures.
The young Canadian played well but unfortunately could not get to the quarter finals in singles.
Interestingly he was playing doubles later with a fellow from New Zealand. Someone he had just met there. It would be hard to play tournament doubles with someone you didn't know very well.
Plans to spend the rest of the day at the beach were foiled by a "quick" lunch at la concha.
We were joined by new friends Sandy and Donna and after a few stories and a Cerveza or two effectively wasted several hours. We hadn't wasted the entire day yet. But the long walk back to the marina left us very thirsty. Before grabbing our beach bag we decided to get some water. But then someone ordered a Cerveza, then a cocoloco, then decided they should make their way through cocktail list. Any thoughts of going to the beach had happily left our heads.
