Today we hit the road early. For us. On a Saturday. #8oclockalarm
We drive up to the town of Davis, California for the evening football game. My sweetie’s daughter is on a dance team scholarship and they perform at the football and basketball games.
Having gone to San Francisco State – a UC Davis rival – I never thought I’d be cheering for UC Davis in anything. But being a parent – or a pseudo-step-parent in my case – makes you do all kinds of things you never thought you’d do.
We got to town and had lunch – I had a nice glass of white wine with my salad – grilled shrimp, mixed greens, hazlenuts, and bleu cheese. #yum
Then we checked out a tennis shop and I bought a new skirt – now that we have been playing 2-4 times a week for a couple of months I almost feel like I can get away with it. #newsport #olddognewtricks
Then we found a news shop with aisles of magazines. #heaven of course I had to look at every section.
Then we made our way back to the car and drove to campus to see if we could find the tennis courts where there was supposed to be a tournament going on.
As we drove we passed the track – I ran a really great 400 meters there once, long ago!
We found the tennis courts and actually pulled right up – not the prime courts but great seats and we got to leave the AC on! #itshothere
