Sweyn’s Ey were up before the lark this morning, dancing the Sun up in reasonably decent conditions. It took a little while for the Sun to show from behind some clouds, but show it did and the small crowd of people who came to watch were blessed with a one hour set from the side, with Erin dancing out for the first time with us. We were also joined by Morwenna and Bob Williams from Cardiff Morris, who made up for the absence of Stewart and Ken who sadly couldn’t make the day.
We visited the King Arthur Hotel for a substantial breakfast and then treated several of their guests to a further display before we joined a Gower Society event on Reynoldston Green, to give more dancing and then involved several watching there in the Brighton Camp Stick Dance.
A short break of an hour at Sandy Lane enabled batteries to be recharged for a final display at Murton Village Fete on the green, with our day finishing at 2pm when we handed over to some Ukrainian dancers. Don’t think any of us will have any trouble getting to sleep tonight!
