Drum Circle, Pelican Formation
Last night we went to the drum circle at Fort Island Beach. I may have forgotten to tell you that Gary found a drum at the flea market pictured below. It's a conga made by World Beat. I took this photo by our pool.
The guy sitting next to me let me borrow one of his drums, actually several different ones so I got to play too. The first photo is one of the drums between my legs.
I neglected to get a photo of Gary or myself at the circle but you can see by the photos we had a good time. My fingers are actually a little sore from playing last night. I'm still thinking about getting a tongue drum. Hopefully I can scrape up the money to order one. Click on the link to read about how long I've been wanting one.
At one point a huge flock of pelicans flew over our group and everyone stopped to watch them. They were flying in formation. I don't think I've ever seen that many pelicans together, let alone flying in formation. It was a sight to see.
At one point several ravens sat on a telephone line squawking to the drums. Maybe birds are affected by all the drumming.
It's really fun playing drums at the beach. If you ever get a chance to go to a drum circle please go. You don't have to play drums, you can just go to listen to the beat.
There were some really strange looking cloud formations on the way home. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
