Moors and Christians

There have been other posts on this blog about Moors and Christians so, just to say, that the season has started again with Sax's festival from 1 to 5 February. We had visitors with us who were interested in seeing the procession on Saturday despite the torrential rain.

I was very impressed that, whilst we sheltered under the overhang of a block of flats, the participants just got on with it and splashed their way from puddle to puddle. I could understand why the Comparsa whose uniform was a long frock coat and a "Capn. Hornblower" hat, complete with feather, chose to wrap matching plastic bags around their hats.

We were there!
It was a shame that the "Guapos" needed to protect the feathers of their hats from the rain.....
Never mind it was good.
