I'm pretty sure they do not sell tickets for behind the tree -- but actually I *love* being next to the tree -- it's very cool there!

They built the stands around that tree but yes, that's a real seat and yes they sell tickets to seats right behind it. On the first day I saw a lady move to her assigned seat and she could practically kiss the tree if she leaned forward. It wasn't crowded so she moved to a better spot of course. These people try to squeeze every dollar possible out of folks, I tell ya.

This is why I like to go to the early rounds of tournaments. It gives me more options such as changing my seat. Nice shot. I'm thinking it would have been even better if you had used your flash to put a little light on that tree (if your camera has a flash?) Would be interested to see more wide shots of the stadium and other facilities. Thanks. I would like to attend Amelia Island sometime.

whats wrong with this seat?
you can see both player, and who want to see the net?

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

A good place to hide, though, if your fave is losing 0-6, 0-6.

Great pic, btw!
