A soggy but inspiring day out
I joined my youngest's school trip this week - they were going to the Life of Christ performance, which takes place each year deep in Surrey. It's a wonderful setting, and the scenes are set in steep fields, which form a natural stage - you walk to each Act. We saw the first three, and then the heavens opened, but it was amazing. They had a flock of sheep and working sheepdog in the first scene.
The costumes were beautifully colourful against the greenery. This is the John the Baptist scene:

One day I'll go back and watch the whole performance - it takes a day.

I won a giveaway from Maria's blog, here. I need to take a photograph, but it is such a lovely giveway to have won, so thank you!
