Beach Hut 2

Day 2 of the Advent Beach Hut Calendar went off beautifully and was a real family event. The theme for hut 128 was O Little Town of Bethlehem and included a beautiful little nativity scene with the stars shining down on a candle lit tableau. There was straw in the stable and we even had a real life Mary, Joseph and an angel who dressed up especially for the occasion.

A number of people who came out last night came along to visit again and there were also a lot of new people including a few who just stopped by intrigued by all the chatter, the music and the warm glow. They soon found themselves drawn in by the irresistible the lure of mulled wine, mince pies and companionship.

We move on to the lagoon end of the beachfront next to see what's in hut 395.

This is such a fantastic idea - it is lovely to walk along the cold quiet seafront towards a glow of light coming from in and around the 'hut of the night' - well done Marianne for last night!

Great suggestions Steve - if I had any idea how to do any of the things you've listed I would do it! Can anybody give me any help with this?
