Beach Hut 4

The day started ominously as it was very wet and stormy but fortunately everything cleared up by late afternoon and by the time we opened hut number 381 we just had a strong breeze to contend with.
Day 4 of our Advent Calendar featured the first live performance as James came down with his guitar to sing the themed carol for today - Love Came Down At Christmas. He had the added bonus of being filmed by Meridian who recorded a piece for the news tomorrow.

Alice had created a wonderful piece of silhouette art with cut outs on the back of a white cloth which had lights placed behind it, turning the beach hut into a kind of lightbox. The theme was carried on through the other decorations on the hut including mistletoe for those who were really feeling the loving spirit!

This evening also had our first giveaway other than the mince pies and mulled wine. There were pebbles from the beach on which Alice had painted a white dove and people could take these away with them to help to remember the evening.

Next hut is number 227.
