More Lines


More lines today... here you see the lines that mark the tennis courts, home to the famous Monte Carlo Tennis Masters. They are being watered to keep them in perfect condition.

Behind - more yachts than usual are out at sea. That's because, when I took the photograph last weekend, the Monte Carlo Boat Show was taking place in Port Hercule. These yachts had to give up their berths for the duration of the show. The large hotel is the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel and Resort.

I didn't come across any tennis courts for theme day, nice choice! They look so pretty, the redness against the blue of the sea!

Another nice view. The tennis courts look like they're just itching for someone to jump out there.

Anon, it's a type of clay court so I presume the watering is to keep the clay compacted, but I'm guessing here.

And if you're lucky you can catch the world Number 3 practicing throughout the year - Novak Djokovic lives here in the principality & this is where he practices.
