May-Day with Wickham Morris
1 May 2011

We spent the day at Portsmouth Harbour, Port Solent and the Watercress Line.

A lovely day with Wickham Morris and other sides - not spoiled by excessive dancing!

The best bit was the community singing on the bus

We kicked off beside HMS Victory

They wouldn't let us dance on her in case we broke something
(and quite right too!)

Here we are, ready to dance the traditional warm-up dance - Dilwyn
Chris, Ali, Louise and Nikki nearest
Then Eddie, Mike, Kelly and Anne
Something else being danced at the pointy end of Victory
