didn’t they know about the Bonfire? Driving though downtown Lake Worth Beach was like most Fridays in high season, busy busy busy. Heading out to the 1st Bonfire at the Beach, saw many people waking across our altered bridge, some coming from and many still heading to our Lake Worth Beach at 9 p.m. Last night was the first of the planned bonfire at the Beach by our Leisure Service Dept. , the fire pits are manned by our LifeGuards. Started out at Benny’s on the beach as they have been active on fb. so curiosity drove me to their drumming on the pier. This was a pleasant surprise as these drummers were not the usual “I have a drum” this was a good solid small group who knew how to drum. The fire pits, well there was just one, one giant one, on the north end and it was surrounded with a massive crowd. My point and shoot had nowhere to focus as the crowd was dense and so dark, stepping lightly, so not to step on someones blanket. I found clusters of friends doing their own thing. Shooting blindly I found some engaging groups of people this one right here offered to share their vegetarian food with me. I accepted, Thank You delicious. Someone sent up one of those small fire balloons into the air and it was very well received with ohs and ahs from the crowd. Perfect night for them as it has to be cold for it to rise, and rise it did.
Then I checked out the DJ and found this scene, delightful. Something for everyone on this evening at our Lake Worth Beach. Spotted these teenagers enjoying the kids performance. I recall just a year or so ago they were the ones dancing to the DJ . I have pictures to prove it. The board walk also was full that passing and hearing was difficult with the noise level. As I left I got closer to Benny’s the din faded and a calm came across me as the rhythmic drumming soothed my razzle dazzled nerves. NOTE I have always loved drumming and have done my share, in Coconut Grove which has a Saturday night drum circle downtown and of course Woodstock NY (my video) that has a Sunday afternoon drum circle from 4-6 p.m. Both well-organized not just rhythmic but melodic as well. Shout out to Karen Deilke who organizes the Grove circle it’s her birthday, Happy Birthday Karen.
