Today’s topic is FIVE REASONS WHY I ENJOY MY ANNUAL TENNIS VACATION:
1. It’s affordable.
Every year, I go to Naples, Fla. in May. It’s off-season so the flights are not expensive. We rent two villas that sleep 5 each. (It’s costs us about $250 each for 8 days.) We leave our chairs, umbrellas and beach stuff in the garage from year to year. We rent 2 vans and split the cost. We eat breakfast in the villa, bring our lunch to beach so we only eat dinner out.
2. The weather is warm and dry.
It rarely rains and if it does, it is only for a short time. It is warm (and at that time of year, usually still cool in the NE.) The sunsets on the Gulf are amazing, too.
3. I run.
This is one of the best things, of course. I can run around the private communities or on the sidewalk along the main road. The only downside is that it is not close enough to the beach to run with water views. And you have to get up early since it is warm and humid.
The 10 of us (and the make-up of the group can vary) met playing tennis although we no longer play together at home. So every morning we play doubles and take lessons with a tennis pro.
5. I go to the beach every day.
Love the sand…the sun…the water…ahhhh!
I eat and drink whatever pleases me!!
Happy Running! Do you have a favorite vacation?
