The first Miners to visit

We were very excited this month to welcome the first Miner visitors to our new home. Steve's Aunt Carol and Uncle John stopped by whilst on vacation in the South. It was wonderful to see them. You can see a commemorative photograph.

The AVP in Ft. Lauderdale

We went to the AVP's first tournament of the year in Ft. Lauderdale to see our friends Albert "AL-B" Hannemann and Eric Fonoimoana (2000 Olympic Gold medalist) play pro beach volleyball. Our guys didn't quite make it to the finals, but we had a great time watching lots of volleyball action. Many famous players were there, including Kerri Walsh. By the way, I played high school football with her Kerri's uncle. We expect her to win gold in Athens. Of course, Ft. Lauderdale has more to offer than just volleyball so we had a good time riding on the water taxi and enjoying the many restaurants and bars.
