Storming the Beaches

I can’t believe 5 days have already flown by and this is my first blog post.

I was hopeful that today would finally be the day where I could steal a few moments and write up a terrific first post. Instead, it’s 1 am and I’m only managing to write a few words so I can grab a few hours sleep before another busy day.

The first few days are always very hectic as we get ourselves oriented, pick up all our materials, and chase down anything which is missing/not set up/ promised but not yet delivered / not what we anticipated. Let’s just say that while having a Plan A is very important….it’s equally important to have a Plan B, C and D.

Tina and I are excited for our teams and their first day of competition. So I’ll leave you with a few photos and the promise of a proper blog post tomorrow.
