A dance out on the slightly wild side in Wind Street commenced at the old Castle in fairly warm sunshine last night. Holidays had reduced our numbers but we were still able to give a good account of ourselves, dancing first at the Castle and then moving down to the No Sign Bar which had some tidy ale on tap. Paul was attracted, obviously, to the Cheddar Ale Potholer guest beer!
Wind Street is an interesting place to dance, and there is always the possibility of sets getting ‘invaded’ by people eager to join in, and this is exactly what happened with three lovely ladies who had been out celebrating wholeheartedly. There was also a manic food delivery cyclist who sped past one of our sets just a little too closely!
An alternative set from Dorothy’s Bar tried to mimic us but dancing in Stilettos hampered their style and their hey and they soon gave up! Still, we performed enough dances in the heat to make people take note of us, and then we headed for the Queens Hotel in Gloucester Place where we had the usual warm welcome from people drinking there. Dancing continued until our legs started feeling like lead weights were attached to them at which point we gave up and chatted and drank instead, making plans to visit Laugharne next Wednesday evening! Great night out!
