After ending our holiday with a family BBQ in Norfolk, we enjoyed another BBQ in Bournemouth on Monday evening. Carole and Steve have a beach hut on the seafront, and invited Bob and me to join them, along with some of the young people from church, for fun and food. Kerry and John, two of the other youth leaders were there [that’s Steve standing in the top right picture, with John next to him, in charge of cooking!]
We paddled, played games, and generally enjoyed ourselves. As the evening wore on, it got a little chilly. Zipping up my cardi over my top and leggings was not a good idea – this is definitely an unflattering photo. I am going to have to try harder to eat less and move more over the next few months I think! But I did enjoy my evening watching the tide come in, laughing and chatting [and eating sausages with John’s amazing curried onions]
The day before, some of these teenagers had been providing music for worship. Here they are, still playing enthusiastically after the service ended. It was wonderful! I feel so blessed to be here.
