In 2015 this was repeated at The Grove. The event culminated with a worship session that included building sandcastles (with the natural smells of shells and sea-weed!), eating ice-cream, sucking seaside rock etc. In the midst we also sang 'Summer suns are glowing' and 'I do like to be beside the sea'. Below is a photo slideshow.
My beloved spoke and said to me,
‘Arise, my darling,
my beautiful one, come with me.
See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
is heard in our land.
The fig-tree forms its early fruit;
the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.
Arise, come, my darling;
my beautiful one, come with me.’
Song of Solomon 2.12
