BBC World Music Day

Moonlight Beach Overlook

June 15 was BBC World Music Day, and they called for change ringers to submit content. We attempted to do so, but were too late. However, in honor of the day, we celebrated by ringing in the park above Moonlight Beach in Encinitas.

We were all able to attend, which hasn’t happened in quite a while. So 6 of us gathered at Moonlight Beach at 6:00 PM. We used our outdoor, Schulmerich bells, which sound very good outdoors. Sadly, this is a set of 10 bells, so we weren’t able to all ring at the same time.

In attendance: Jane Booth, Karen Fitzsimmons, Maggie Fowlie, Genine Rainbeau-Heart, Jess Sorrell, and Randy Zack.

We only rang methods we knew fairly well – Bob minor, Bob major, Plain hunt on 10. But we had great fun.

We captured some video as well.

And we rang until the sun set.

Afterwards, we retired to Genine’s house to have some dinner and conversation. Sadly, we have no photo evidence of the delicious food we had. But all in all, it was quite a nice way to celebrate.

    So glad that we had the quintessential gorgeous blue sky beach day for our 4th anniversary, Summer’s comin’ & BBC World Music Day celebration. Yes, sometimes we can and do ring in Encinitas West!
    It was awesome to ring together, share with some of our family fans and local beach-goers.
    Singing my “AIYAMA Heart Song” at the Encinitas Moonlight Beach Overlook with Jess created a perfect addition to the “BBC World Music” offerings as a beautiful, heart-felt finale.
    Thanks for sharing in our garden feasting dear Bell Band mates!
    The racoons especially appreciated the remains of our sumptuous vegetarian fare at their raucous after-party on the deck.
