Unusual happenings on the beach today. Better sit a while and check it out.
Some passers-by didn’t notice, others were interested and stopped:
“What’s going on?”
“Must be a hen party?”
“Are they drunk?”
The huddle removed parkas and coats that had been protecting them from a keen sea breeze to reveal brightly coloured outfits and lots of exposed flesh.
“Not got many clothes on – must be from Newcastle,” commented one passer by.
The huddle moved down the beach, one teetering on green high heels – not the best beach footwear – and came to a standstill. A drone hovered overhead. Then the music started and a full-on dance routine burst into action.
Chatting to one of the production team, they are in St Annes filming a music short, “Made in the 80s”, and moving on to Blackpool tomorrow. Might just have to wander up there and check them out!
