Our accommodation was fabulous, with beautiful sea views.
The tide was out when we arrived.

I enjoyed a couple of early walks on the beach and paddled twice. The sea wasn't as cold as I expected it to be.

During the week there's all sorts going on and you can go to as little or as much as you like - Bible teaching, modern style worship, and seminars and workshops about the relevance of Christian faith to everyday life. There are special groups for children and teenagers plus a wide choice for adults, and some things are suitable for all ages together, all using the same theme. There are also all the activities at Butlins - high ropes course, fun fair, swimming pool etc. - and not enough time to fit everything in so choices have to be made.

The man on the right with the microphone is my old boss from Wesley Owen. He now works for Scripture Union and was promoting "Guardians of Ancora", a free game which comes out in a couple of months time.

On guard - there might be chips or ice creams to steal

It was a very enjoyable time away - I always find it therapeutic to be near the sea and the talks etc. were interesting and relevant.
Thank you very much for joining me.
