Life's a Beach

Written by Helen Hackwell on Tuesday, 07 August 2012.

Life's a beach… or at least it was, last weekend. Having spent a delightful Saturday meandering round Portobello Market with Lucy (The Luxe Life) and Briony (A Girl, A Style), I then spent Sunday evening happily ensconced watching the women’s beach volleyball at Horse Guards Parade.

I'm far more interested in the Olympics that I had originally anticipated and the opportunity to go along and soak up the atmosphere at one of the events was amazing.

We were lucky enough to get tickets courtesy of my sister-in-law Faye, who is an avid Olympics fan and currently staying with us while she volunteers at Eton Dorney. It was a wonderful weekend, capped off by a fabulous evening spent cheering on the likes of Brazil, Argentina and the USA in the volleyball.

While we may have been cheering on the Argentines in the beach volleyball, my loyalty is undoubtedly with Great Britain in any of the sports they’re participating in. So in honour of that; go Team GB!!
