Sandy Beach Fun in an Italian Mountain Town

Brrr, baby it’s cold outside.  The wind is sweeping over the hills, storms are brewing on the coast and I just finished editing a summertime video

This summer a truckload of sand was dumped on an open space in Pontelandolfo. What for, I wondered. Then our house guest, Alana, announced that my cousin Giusy was organizing a team to compete in he Beach Volleyball tournament. Alana would be the only American on a team. What a hoot. Beach volleyball in an Italian mountain village.

I went to a couple of matches and found the enthusiasm contagious.  Check out the video you may  too.

    We had the International Beach Volleyball Championships this summer in Scheveningen, the beach town that is part of The Hague. To promote the event the city set up temporary beaches with nets and balls in different places all over the city. People would just walk in and play.

  2. But where are the bikinis?
