The Long Beach Roller Derby by Alison Travels

In the midst of getting ready to leave to drive around the country, I thought it was a good idea to get out for some local entertainment, or how the derby describes it is, "girl on girl traction."

Big mistake. For the second time, the event sold out. I learned my lesson and bought the tickets early.

When I arrived, the line to get in was pretty long. I snapped pictures of the crowd and this little girl caught my attention. She was so interested in the roller girl, but hiding behind her parents as she watched her skaway.
