Drumming practice update:
After yesterday's abject failure to face up to the 191 steps and the dunes, I manned up this morning and despite the black skies took my drum equipment to the beach once more.
|The 191 steps|
|Skies beginning to darken.|
|The set up.|
|Drummed through 25 minutes of torrential rain - there was no hiding place and it would have taken me ages to climb back up, so I just stayed and hoped it would pass over, which it did.|
|Afterwards, the trek up the side of the dune.|
|To the foot of the 191 steps.|
|Just as well I had strapped on my brace.|
|My bag of equipment.|
|Reminder of the gradient.|
But actually, it's a poisoned chalice, because really, I shouldn't care whether someone of my age should be taking up the drums.
