Since I'm wide awake, I head down to the fields with Hannah and Herm for his 9.30 game, even though I don't play until 11.
There's no fog today. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous playa (beach).
Our first game was very close. We ended up playing to a cap, and won 9-8. I think we took our team picture after that game.
Our last game was not as close and we lost, ending in 8th place overall!
Guess what team made it to the finals? (Look for the yellow)

I loaded up two plates for lunch and sat in Herm's sun-tent (beach-tent?), anxious to watch the finals.

But before the final game began, there was a quick dog-frisbee show thing.
Okay, back to the game. Some pics:
Quijotes were in the lead I think the whole game, and they won!!

And then it was time for the awards ceremony. Here are the Quijotes & Dulcineas receiving first place!
It was quite exciting because I don't know the last time the Quijotes have won a whole tournament -- and it was a beach tournament on top of it all! (We get zero practice playing on beach, living in Madrid). And I got to witness it happen.
There were four of us from Quijotes (myself included) that played with other teams at this tournament, so they called us over to take a group picture with everyone, which was nice:
