ba ba bababa (ba ba!) It’s drumming on the beach!

You guys we had such a fun day let us tell you all about it! Ready?

We started with a tasty hot breakfast from Dan! Thanks, Dan! 

Then we sprinted down to music to be able to sing our little lungs out to get ready for the play! We have a killer song list coming together so you’re going to want to mark July 17th and 18th in your calendars ASAP. Did you write it down? Great. See you then.

 After music, we scattered off to some morning adventures and classes and sports. There was horseback riding, a tennis class taught by Dr. Steve and Kathy, poetry, beadmaking, and a nature walk, to name a few! 

Here are two reunited best friends heading to horseback riding!

Sharon has been super helpful covering this lazy blogger and taking photos during the day of friends doing activities, so here’s some of her images from classes today!

Sharon captured Tim and Myles right after they had just gotten back from a tandem bike ride!

For this image, Sharon made sure that George turned around and faced the camera. She did not make sure Hannah didn’t photobomb, though.

Marquisha has been picking up flirting tips from Scott. These are their best faces so far.

OH and did we mention that Sharon WALKED INTO LUNCH today?! She did! It was awesome! Everyone was so happy!

After we exercised our minds and bodies in classes, we refueled, recharged, and went BACK TO THE BEAAAAAAAACH!

It was amazing. The day was perfect, the water was salty, new friends were bonding, the food was tasty (and a tiny bit sandy when the wind picked up), and the drummers were rockin’ as usual! 

Kate and Myles immediately got into the boat and set sail for the sandbar!

And Sam and Harry opted for a tube, which was super relaxing until we realized how fun it is to dunk Sam in the water. We're good counselors. (He liked it, we swear)

Paul got in the water, too. He tried to do it subtly because he is so famous and important, but the paparazzi quickly caught on. You can probably also find these photos in the next issue of Star magazine.

After the water, we dried off, built some sand castles, ate some classic camp cookout food, and then enjoyed some s’mores!! and we ate s’more and s’more and s’more… 

Skye is a sandcastle master. He is also a sandcastle destroyer. The Skye giveth, and the Skye taketh away.

Becca opted to make some sand scenery for the castles, including hills and rivers!

Holly had a wonderful time at the beach! She's making new friends and loving every activity we try!

The green gang, a friendly Oak Bluffs gang, stopped by to steal our s’mores and tickle people. Watch out for them, if you’re ever on State Beach.

Kendra and Madison worked on their tans and talked about prooOOOOooom date options!!

Scott has extreme levels of focus when he eats his s'more. Doesn't want to miss a single morsel of goodness.
