This morning Dan and I walked to the village for breakfast than wandered around, stopping to explore the Barnacle Historic State Park. After passing through the tropical hardwood hammock, a stand of broad-leafed trees, shrubs and vines on a slight elevation that makes them resistant to flooding, we came upon the home and boathouse built by Ralph Monroe. The setting brought back visions of the late 1800s. The Barnacle was inhabited by Mr. Monroe until his death in 1933 then his relatives continued on there until 1973 when The Barnacle became a state park.

We converged on the tennis center, ready to cheer Sam on. Unfortunately, his opponent Viktor Troicki had other ideas and Sam’s singles play at the Sony Ericsson Open came to an abrupt end. The good news…. doubles again tomorrow!
