The Manhattan Beach open is the grandaddy of beach volleyball tournaments and the most prestigious tournament there is.  It has gone through a number of changes over the years with the AVP reigning supreme for many years, faltering a few years ago, and now back as an AVP event.  The courts are located just south of the Manhattan Beach pier and is a great event to see from the sand, Strand, or parking lots above.  With an abundance of bars and restaurants to visit during or after it’s a can’t miss weekend in this wonderful city and just another great summer event in Manhattan Beach CA.

Although the picture itself isn’t spectacular I just loved just how much was going on and how much this captures the energy of Manhattan Beach and the South Bay.  In one picture I captured people walking, biking, playing volleyball, surfing and stand up paddling…all of this on a Wednesday in the middle of the winter.    There just can’t be anywhere better for those seeking an active outdoor lifestyle and yet another reason I love living here.
