As we sipped our morning coffee and contemplated the tennis match we were planning we couldn’t help but notice the tsunami approaching to our left.
I had been taking photos of the court as part of the record of our trip to Bansui Beach. We were both keen players and the location of the hotel court below our room only served to whet our appetites for a game.
Our games were always a battle with neither of us giving in to the other.
We enjoyed the closeness of our matches with the loser had to pay for lunch. As we were both misers we played with great tenacity.
But within seconds of this photo the court was gone. Swallowed up by the surging ocean.
It took ten days to get a flight home.
Mother nature had certainly aced this holiday for us.
