Buffy & I first met Michael 10 years ago when he was covering the US Women's Pro Ski Tour as a sports photographer.  Michael is not a skier, but became good friends.

We have shared some great adventures including US Equestrian Team events, the US Polo Championships, the 125th Anniversary of Polo in the U.S. in Newport Rhode, Island, the Mercedes Tournament of Championships at the Greenwich Polo Club, and Pro Ski Tour Races at VV/GG, Hidden Valley, West Mountain and Mt Abrams, Maine.

The photos on this page chronicle some of those adventures.

We also enjoyed Newport Harbor and posed in front of the America's Cup race boats "The Weatherly" and "America" ...

...and took time for a Fruit Smoothie in Newport Harbor

A sail on Newport Bay gives Michael a chance to relax but not without his camera.
