2nd day of Tennis

We were at the tennis again today. The security men reminded me of MIB We also saw Alex Bogdanovic and I thought this picture was quite good

Wandering round Patchings grounds

Today we went to a local outdoor store and purchased two plastic ponchos to keep the rain off during the Nottingham Open this week. Then on to Patchings where Maria finshed two bears. I walked round the grounds and took some pictures with the Olympus 70-300mm lens.
