San Juan Islands WA; Friday Harbor Lodging



Community Jam

Innkeepers don’t get out much during summer and sometimes even during the winter. But here we are – all four of us – away from the Inn together!

I remember our first four winters after we moved to the Island. We never saw the light of day. We were always working – tearing up something and putting in something. We still spend winters doing renovations and making improvements, but now with Erin and Shay we can take advantage of some play time.

We had the pleasure of attending this ‘Rhythm Jam’ presented by Source Consulting. It was also a treat to get to know the Kenya and Maketa (left) when they stayed with us at the Harrison House Suites.

Kenya and Maketa were here on San Juan Island for 3 days doing presentations for youth in our schools. Our community session, with over 150 in attendance – each with our own drum – showed the power of the individual voice and that of the whole. I am not quite ready to trade in my flute for a drum. We all had smiles ear to ear as we looked around the room and made fabulous ‘music’ with our neighbors and friends on the Island.
