Today our good friends, the Govatos/Willis/Nell families, joined us and helped us run the band camp. We’ve now had 2 days of band camp with approximately 50 Bahamian kids playing trumpets, trombones, saxophones, clarinets, and recorders. They are simply amazing. At the end of day 2, we had two songs ready to go for the parade on Friday.
Back at the dock, our kids from Big Easy II and our friends’ kids from Tanda Malaika went out on the dinghy and found 4 nice conchs that we ultimately ate in the form of conch fritters (thank you Belinda!). We put our food together and along with the fritters, we had beef fajitas with refried beans and other fixings and delicious Goombay punch to drink. We had a jam session on the boat afterwards and the kids are still swapping stories as I write this.
