Such a great weekend!! As always, PK broght the sun when he came to town and boy did we take advantage! We got in about 3-3.5 hours of beach volleyball on Alki yesterday, which was hot Hot HOT! With a forcast of 70’s and sun, I eagerly rallied everyone for another 3 hours today. Maybe a bit too eagerly seeing as how some people didn’t appreciate the text message at 7:40am. But I knew they couldn’t resist. This weekend was the first warm, sunny, rain-free weekends of the year and you gotta milk the sun for every drip of its rays when it comes. First time out on the sand this year and it felt oh so GOOD! We had 3 or 4 "last games". Finally we decided we’d play until we run out of water. I can already feel the addiction starting…
D commented we should try to play 2’s; I told him he was insane. He rebutted that we’ve gotten a lot better. And he’s right. When I think back to our very first summer beach league 2 years ago and compare it to where we’re at now, we’ve actually come a long way from the "just get it over" strategy. Granted, sometimes that’s our rally cry even now, but much less often. =)
Today, we started with 6’s, dwindled to 4’s and when we were left with 6 people total, we had to decide — call it a day or play 3’s. Well… the sun was still out, so the answer was obvious… we play 3’s. That court is SOO big when you look around and there’s only two other people on the court with you. Boy did we have to hustle! I was probably in the sand every other point. I’ll pay for it tomorrow when I’m all sore & achy, but it was well worth it!
As if all the vball wasn’t enough, I got to have brunch with an old friend I haven’t seen in a while. It was good to catch up again and hopefully we don’t go so long w/o seeing each other. Ty & I made some good progress on our new biz idea. And I even managed to get some VNSF work done! A fun AND productive weekend. Gotta love it!
