The sunset was beautiful yesterday. I drove to the border line of Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach after work. There are hundredes of beach volleyball courts on the beach. There is no fee to use them.
The area is known as a Mecca of beach valleyball. Most of American beach volleyball Olympic athelets are either from this area or live and train in this area. The Chinese beach volleyball Olympic athelets got training of beach volleyball from an American coach in this area, too.
There were some people playing beach volleyball on the beach. I took several photos of them and the sunset.
The houses at ocean front along the beach are colorful and trendy.
The Beijing Olympic beach volleyball players are now in Beijing, China, competing the games. But they are usually around here, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, and Manhattan Beach, to practice beach volleyball.
I will try to remember their faces on the TV and Internet and come back here to spot them later.
Update :8/14/0817:00 PDT ( 8/15/08 9 AM Japan time) There was an annual 2008 Manhattan Beach beach volleyball tournament on August 2 and 3, 2008. I searched Internet to look for photos. I found one site listing 75 photos from the tournament. This site is not suitable for minors. (There are many sexy photos.)
Sorry, I will list this site until I find a better site with photos.
