Oh, golf balls! A visit on practice day at the US Open.
We dropped some product off for Blowing Sands and got to do a walk through. I can’t believe how much it looked like a desert. We were fascinated at the behind-the-scenes part of it so movie makers might like to take a gander. 🙂
There were a ton of famous people! We think…at least people seemed to think so and there were a LOT of people with scarves over their head riding around in golf carts. It’s all relative. 🙂

Inside the air conditioned, raised platform souvenir tent. I’m guessing that the Olympic Village is kind of like this. It was a constant barrage of patrons. Crazy.

quiditch like, yes?
Hole on the water with trains going by 60x a day. 🙂
rainier village? We think this is the first hole.
Why do the sand traps look so inviting? I want to go play in it. lol.
Getting up to the stands
Paddle signals 1. Letting the people crossing guards know if people can cross.
Director’s chair and lonely sign.

THE TREE III
He’s got big golf balls. They’re about 9 or 10 inches.
Tables stuck in the ground.
Looks sort of like a military camp to me.
I was fascinated with the guy walking around with the players name on a sign for some reason.
Goose!!! I have no idea who that is but everyone kept yelling his name. 🙂
Ladies dressed perfectly.
The VIP Pavilion? I’m pretty sure it is.
Very modern furnishings on the inside.
The camera crane! The operator was moving it through.
