By the Seaside

Have just returned from an action packed and fun filled weekend in Brighton.

By a series of happy turns, I sang at St Mary Magdalene's for their Feast Day, swelling the ranks of their choir with various other extra singers. All power to the maestra di capella and my host for the weekend.

Then, after a glass of wine, (how civilised) and a meeting with Fr Ray, PP and celebrity blogger extraordinaire, to the beach for cool music sung by the daughter of a parishoner, then a boat trip from the beach to Brighton Marina. (I'm not making this up, btw.) Oh yes and the boat trip included tea from fine bone china cups, no less. These people relax in style!

Thankyou to all for a fantastic time!

Thanks, Fr Ray. It was a great w/e.

GOTO No pics, I'm afraid.

Well you know what the inside of the Church looks like and Fr Ray, so put them together with lots more people and a very hot day and bingo - yesterday.

Sounds wonderful!

I wondered where you disappeared to...

Bingo too? Did Fr. Ray do the bingo calls?

"B11 -- who's going to heaven?"

leutgeb said...

Bingo - that's just a turn of phrase!

I wish I'd known you were there! I was singing in the choir too! Like ships passing... Come again some time and have lunch with us. Our choir is on holiday at the moment but will resume at some point in September.

Well there's a thing. Were you part of the mighty fine soprano section, or were we next to each other in the altos?

Very happy to come to Brighton again.
