The Lou

We left the rain behind and headed east, to St. Louis. It rained here too, but only a bit.

Today was a day to see a few sights and get some steps in. First stop was a grass tennis court built by his coach for Arthur Ashe to practice on, next to his coach’s house.

The tennis court is a bit of a memory, bit the shape and space survives.

The house over the grass area is where the coach lived

Then it was on to Busch Stadium for some baseball. At least a tour, and a visit to their museum.

Let’s just say they have more history than the Mariners. What I learned: 1. The World Series TROPHY was first awarded in 1927, the year after Green Bay got the first Lombardi Trophy. Before that you got a flag. 2. The team gets 2 trophies. One for the team, and one for the owner.

Dinner ala Mark rounded out the day before we were delivered to our home away from home away from home for the next 3 days.

The Arch from our room

It’s a small window, with only a partial view from a comfortable position.

    You have a great view of the Arch! I’ve only been to St. Louis once for a gymnastics meet, so we didn’t get to look around much. We went to St. Charles (I think?) and it was a beautiful town.
