Joe - Something tells me you were taking photos for reasons other than athletic interest - am I right? Glad you got to enjoy the surf, sand, and "views".

Hey, that's quite a burn you've got there! Love all your photos and it does look as though much fun was had by all! Glad you had such a great time, Joe! Have a great week!

That must have been a lot of fun out there! Taking the pictures was not a bad job either I suppose ;-)

Sounds like you had a great beach vacation, Joe... Wow---all the way to the Dominican Republic to go to the beach???? Mercy Me!!!!! Bet you have tons of great pictures. Hope you didn't get a sunburn.

It looks like a good time was had by all, including the photographer.

It looks like you may have been having as much fun photographing the beach games as the participants themselves. Looking forward to seeing more pictures from your beach vacation.

Thanks for the laugh with that last photo!

I've seen kids playing that game before, but this is the first time I've seen adults playing it! I think I'd pass....but it looks like all are having fun.

Joe: Real cute, I used to train a group on how to do this game. Brings back memories.

I loved playing this game as a kid. Great photos.

I like the proverb. Next time, I want to see how deep the water is, I must remember to use one leg.

It is freezing here. I like to be where you are.
