Cradle Mountain!!!!

What an incredible day.  I think today was the most physically, mentally, and emotionally demanding day of the entire course.  It was also the most rewarding. The day started with the lovely “ding ding” on the ferry that I mentioned in the last post.  This got everyone up and ready to get off the boat and on our way to … Continue Reading Continue Reading

This meant we had reserved seats but we could also wonder the outer courts and see other matches.  A lot of students ended … Continue Reading Continue Reading
