May Day with Cinque Port Morris

I was lucky enough to be invited to spend this years May Day with the Cinque Port Morris side (I may have invited myself . . . I forget). Little did I know that they start the day at 05:31 with the sun up. On this occasion the sun was sorely missing though! 2010_05_01 Cinque Port Morris-001
Starting at Smallhythe, then onto Winchelsea church (via the Swan at Wittersham for a superb breakfast!), followed by dancing at Rye Harbour, Rye town and back to Smallythe to finish. Here are a couple more photos . . . 2010_05_01 Cinque Port Morris-003 This is Cinque Port Morris dancing around Spike Milligan’s grave . . 2010_05_01 Cinque Port Morris-004 
A quiet moment was spent around The Mary Stanford Memorial:2010_05_01 Cinque Port Morris-005 This beer keg travelled with us all day and was kindly supplied by the Rother Valley Brewery and was filled with their Weald Bitter.

The full set have been passed back to Cinque Port Morris so they can use some on their own website. Here is my first video from my camera to share with you of my favourite dance of the day:
