Beach Hut 5

Our journey towards Christmas really got moving today as the theme at hut 357a was travelling. Cathy Watts has been a regular beach hut advent calendar participant over the last three years and for tonight she created a little scene with Mary and Joseph setting out for Bethlehem being pulled along by a cute little donkey.

The overall colour theme reminded us of Mary as everything was lit with gentle blue light and the hut was dressed with little homely touches. We were reminded that Mary and Joseph left the comfort of their home to make this journey despite the imminent birth.

As well as the usual mince pies and mulled wine there were also biscuits and chocolates and room for people to sit and enjoy the view.

Tomorrow we move down near The View to hut number 227.
