…until my bocce ball team loses.
To celebrate my friend Emily’s successful qualifying exam, a major milestone in her PhD career, our lab gathered for sunset bocce ball on the beach in front of the lab. This is definitely one of the perks of having a lab right on the beach!
Also, Emily has honed her bocce ball skills during many months of seaside research in Maui (her team won).
We have had some spectacular sunsets lately. I think the Scripps pier might be one of the most highly-photographed landmarks in San Diego, especially for unique, artsy, ocean-y wedding portraits.
Plus, extreme low tides mean that you can ride a bicycle on the beach! Not a bad way to spend the evening.
