Rock of Ages, a musical film starring the likes of Tom Cruise, made me cringe as he sang. I must confess I actually hadn’t seen the movie in full just his rendition and I was done. There are some actors that you just prefer in certain roles and never in others and that’s Tom Cruise for me. Whilst Rock of Ages is a musical film title for me it’s something completely different.

It is… 

Rock of Ages is a song we sing at church that somehow wouldn’t leave my mind this weekend. Not sure why but I have been humming it more and more each day and makes me calm somehow. Over the weekend we had our annual Zambian community trip to the coast and this year it was Somerset. Whilst I have heard of this English city I have never actually been nor knew it was down south. It took me a little over 4 hours to drive down from mine on a Friday.

When we arrived down in Minehead it was already bed time, we checked in and slept. When Saturday arrived, the weather wasn’t particularly beach worthy but we went anyway. We all dressed with bikinis inside just in case it cleared up but as luck would have it, it didn’t. Never a bunch to be disappointed we drove to Pollock and explore the stony mini beach there. It started to rain a bit so we left and went to Watchet with clouds coming in. The marina wasn’t the prettiest but the town was small and quaint. We strolled around whilst our parents and elders shopped all the charity shores they could find.

An hour had passed before we left Watcher for Minehead where again our parents did more shopping. Minehead and surrounding villages are places where our parents would really appreciate as retirement places. Well at least that’s what they all talked about throughout the journey.

If I could sum up the weekend in a few words I would say it was an epic trip. Not only did we celebrate ShyGirlBlog96‘s 21st birthday we also enjoyed the company of our elders and parents. These days it’s rare to have such an opportunity to spend time with the elders and hacken until their word. I always make it my point at such occasions to steal some words of wisdom and try to lead a good life.
