This is definitely the summer of volleyball for Judy and I. We met some really cool people who play regularly on Sundays at Santa Cruz so we’ve been heading to the beach every Sunday.
The Santa Cruz volleyball scene is great – it’s got a really mellow and friendly vibe that we really enjoy. For the past few Sundays, we’ve been pretty much playing volleyball from 8 or 9 in the morning until 4 or 5 in the afternoon. It’s a great way to spend the day. The only downside is that we’re probably spending way too much time in the sun. Sunscreen can only do so much, especially when you’re working up a sweat in the sun all day long. Oh well, what’re you gonna do? Life’s meant to be lived!
Today, we played in another No Attitudes tournament. We went 2-1 in pool play and then lost in the first round of playoffs to Ben and Suzy, a formidable team that ended up winning the coed division. As a result, we got bumped into the Tide Pool division where we got to the finals for that division. We played Andy and Kim in the finals. It was a pretty even match-up which made for a really fun game. At one point, we were down 11-6, but were able to rally back and win 15-13! Another (I just back-posted about the Jul 21 tourney) Tide Pool championship for us – yay!
