Green-ParrotOn Saturday, we listened to steel drums at the beach.

Steel drums make me smile, whisking me through time and space to St. Thomas (US Virgin Islands) for Spring Break my senior year in college.

Each afternoon, a steel drum band played in the  Windward Passage’s courtyard in Charlotte Amalie.

As I traversed the distance from pool  to tiki bar, I listened to the friendly percussive persuasion of the steel drums . . .

Come join the party, mon. 

They steel call my name.

Kokomo beckons us to sit on the hot sand with a cool drink under a swaying palm . . . to soak up the rhythm of a steel drum band:

Saturday night, we went back to the beach to listen to Jahfari, a reggae band from Tampa that played lots of jammin’ reggae tunes.

But no one does Jammin like Marley does Jammin:

Don’t worry . . . be happy now.
