I'm really glad I told you about the iffy weather. Your good thoughts about the weather held up well. I was shocked we were able to play today.
Our team is totally caught up. We defeated Canada 3-0. Betty Wachob won at #2 and I won at #1, then Judy Louie and Cathie Anderson won the doubles. Judy and Cathie also completed our tie with South Africa by winning their doubles match. We play our last tie of the round robin tomorrow against Sweden. If we're able to win that tie, we'll be in the semifinals!!! Hopefully the weather will hold and all will continue to progress on schedule.
Everyone was surprised at dinner tonight when a storm passed through. We were dining on one of the four restaurants' wraparound porch and the rain and wind was severe enough to run us inside. The people who were dining at the outdoor beach restaurant were much worse off than we were!
The food here is unbelievable. It is beautifully presented in a large room where the hot food is cooked before your eyes. There are large stations -- bread, antipasto, wonderful salad, fruit, and desserts, desserts, desserts. It's "all you can eat" and that's dangerous, yet delicious.
The USA won all of its Tuesday matches!!
