How could I say no to a conference on the beach of Alghero, Sardinia? The sand was more fine and the water more flat and warm than I can remember anywhere. The medieval city held mystery around every narrow archway, and the food kept us dazzled. We had a short boat ride out to Neptune's Grotto, a rich set of seaside caverns. Oh, and the conference was great as well. :) I seem to always find myself liking the pics with people in them (mainly Jason Barnes and Ralph Lorenz in these) the best.
