July 26th - day at the beach

Boys B have 7:30 am game, very early and we are sore and tired but entire  tour comes out to support.

We go up 1-0 on nice goal but concede late and tie 1-1 so on to penalty kicks.  Cannot remember the  order as we had to go 9 rounds, yes, 9, but we had chance to win on round 5 but missed. 

round 6 - Norway goal, SnS goal
round 7 - Norway goal, SnS goal
round 8 - Norway goal, SnS goal
round 9 - Norway goal, SnS missed
we lose on pks, AGAIN,  ouch

After lunch watching some games, the beach calls us so we answer.
A quick  bus  ride and a nice walk and we are at the beach with lighthouse and old World War ll German pill boxes on the beach.  We spend several hours just relaxing, which we needed.  Back for dinner and more games then the kids all shower and head to the disco.  Yes, Coach Ed has loosened the noose and allowed the kids to go to the  disco, which is  actually a tent with dirt  floor and music.  All had  fun and needed some down time, kids are in good spirits.

Have some bad news though for  the parents, kids want to stay an extra week and play one more tournament, good sign we had a great tour.

We have  had  some great kids and thankful for all of them.

So many laughs and so many funny  moments, just priceless.

One  last day on  tour and it seems so sad to write that and saying good bye will be tough.

Finals and team dinner on our schedule  before overnight  transfer so another long  day ahead.
