Hoopy Vacation!

I know, where have the updates been?  I’ve been on the annual family vacation to the Outer Banks!  See evidence of beach hooping in picture to the left.

I had a lovely week, and managed to hoop every day there, even when Tropical Storm Ana came through (it was just a lot of rain, really) on Monday, I did circus drills inside.  Quite nice!

Of course, there should be some upcoming video of my time in the OBX, too.

Oh, and talent show was yesterday.  I did pretty well, I think.  The sparse audience seemed to enjoy my act.  The icing on the cake was when a good high school friend greeted me at the end of the show with a bouquet of flowers.  It was great to see her!!

I’ll have more on the talent show, too, as pictures and video of that become available, too.  Stay tuned!  As for now, I leave you with more squinty faced pictures of me hooping on Whalehead Beach.

Leftover LED Video

I just realized I never posted this video of me and my LED hoop from vacation!  I know many of you have probably already have seen it, but for those who haven’t, here you go.


It’s just me in the pitch black of the Outer Banks at night, my LED hoop, and “Save Me” by Muse.  (Why do I always LED hoop to Muse? Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)

Here’s the Vimeo version is you prefer that service.

Back on the Grid!

I’m ba-ack!  Did you miss me?

I was on vacation in the Outer Banks in North Carolina, USA for a week, enjoying the sunshine (we had FANTASTIC weather), the beach, and the quiet.  And, I did a LOT of hooping.

The first day I got down there was World Hoop Day aka WHD (Oct. 4, 2014) and my one year hoopiversary.  After getting up at 3:20am and spending eight hours in the car, I got to celebrate both milestones on the beach!  Luckily, it wasn’t too windy, but the tide was high, so I had to act fast.  And I did get my 30/30 challenge in that day, as I did every day, for the week. 

I even got in a video for WHD on the beach, which actually made it into Hooping.org’s Part 2 coverage of WHD.  Woo hoo!


All said and done, I’m glad I had a week off.  Throughout this week, I will have more news and updates about other hoopiness in my life.  If you are interested, though, here are a few more general photos of the week.
