A bunch of friends and I ended up spending an entire afternoon playing beach volleyball. Part of me has always been sad that I didn’t get into volleyball at an earlier age. I played in elementary school and tried out for the team in high school. Sadly, my lack of hops and inability to serve overhand got me cut during the early rounds of tryouts. I waited a couple years before trying to pick up volleyball in university (on an intramural team) and never looked back!
I’m still pretty awful and can’t seem to volley without flipping a nail backwards or barely adding 3 inches of air to the ball, but I’m working on it!
Unfortunately, I got into a bit of an accident during the last game of the afternoon, which means my days of volleyball are over for the summer. :( I was going for a block while someone on the other side of the net was about to spike and all his weight ended up on my foot. I’m usually a tough cookie, but it was pretty painful and I now have a wickedly bruised/swollen foot that seems to get angry on and off while I’m walking around the city.

If Seattle was this beautiful and rain-free all year round, I don’t think I would ever be able to stay inside!
