Let the Fun Begin!

Sarasota, FL      High:  77    Low:  66

We're off to a fantastic start with family....On Kelly's second day here, we managed to get her over to the Siesta Key Drum circle....She loved it! And Sparky loved that we ran into David and Sherry Boyd, of In the Direction of Our Dreams.... David was seriously ill earlier this year as most of you who read blogs regularly know if you have been reading them. He is well on the way to recovery and maintaining good health once again.  It was very gratifying to see how wonderful David looked. He looks terrific and says he is feeling about as good as it gets. Sherry looked great, too, and Sparky was just so glad to run into them that big hugs were in order! Unfortunately, she didn't have  the presence of mind to snap a photo. Phooey!

The drum circle was awesome as usual....

The preparations took place as usual, with a little more holiday spirit...

This guy performed quite a bit of ritual and symbolic gesturing before the regular drumming started and as it just got under way....Sparky wishes she knew what he was doing exactly and what significance it has in the whole drumming arena.

Sparky's favorite drummer is the guy with the dreadlocks..He's a regular....

Not as many professional hoop ladies doin' their thing.....But this gal does more than just hoop dance...

She balances a sword on her head and dances around with it on her head....Sparky THINKS it's the same lady, then again, maybe it's not?

Sparky and Kelly watched the sun go down.....

It was a beautiful night, but it got chilly very quickly....Time to head home......
