We're still in the Bahamas
, where there's nary a snowflake to be seen! Right
now, we're in Georgetown
, in the Exumas
, and the wind
is blowing - but no
Today, Lydia and I are going to be singing in a celebration on the beach on
Eve. We've been thinking of how odd it is to hear the traditional
Dashing through the surf, in an open dinghy
o'er the waves we go, from the spray we hide!
sings its song, keeping spirits bright,
oh what fun it is to sing our boating
OHHH, see the spray, crashing waves, water
oh what fun it is to fly across the open sou-ound,
See the spray, crashing waves, water
oh what fun it is to fly across the open sou-ound!
Because of the nature of how things are here, we can't just jump in the car
to go to a rehearsal or to church. Everything involves a ride in the dinghy
if we want to go somewhere!
Actually, while there ARE the traditional Christmas songs
playing on the
speakers from the Conch Salad stand on the beach, we're going to sing the
traditional Christmas carols for our service
. Among all the traditional
carols, we're doing "We three kings" with three guys singing harmony on the
first and last verse. Each of us will do one of the gifts verses as a solo.
Mine is Myrrh, as the dark bass.
Hope all here have a blessed Christmas, or had a Happy Hannukah or Kwanza,
and have a happy New Year.
