Hats And Fire

5 Nov


Guy Fawkes Night!!!!! A great British tradition. Some say that Guy Fawkes is the only person ever to have entered the Houses of Parliament with honest intentions. Tonight we took a young relative to the municipal fireworks display just across the road from the sea. It was terrific, some of the best fireworks I’ve seen. It was a good chance to sketch in  crowd too and there were loads of hats. Then afterwards, we strolled along the beach for a while. Over the last decade or so, crowds of mostly younger people flock onto the beach on Guy Fawkes night, setting off their own foreworks, lighting bonfires and partying. You hardly ever see people using the beach in the summer, but here we are on a very cold wintry night and there are thousands.
