The Furry Dance

Yes, my friends, you read that correctly. Part of travelling involves the learning of new things, and I learnt something as I passed through the Cornish town of "Helston: Home of the Furry Dance". When I saw that on the town's welcome sign, I had great visions of beardy men clad in fur, dancing like bears and badgers.

Alas, this is not the case.

Still awesome though!

There was also a church hall offering "sequence dancing" classes -- assuming that was just a new euphemism for "line dancing" I got my snicker ready, but actually "sequence dancing" is this. It's true, y'all - travel broadens your horizons.

PS: It's true that I also thought "Furry Dancing" might involve people who are, y'know, um, "into animal costumes in a grown-up way" cough, blush furiously, but we SO don't need to go there ...
