saint vitus' dance

Last year it was Roger; this year Vitus got a guernsey for the annual Italian inspired festa, held in the grounds of Villa Patricia, in the walled hilltop Renaissance bogan city of Busselton al Mare.  Followers of the Buongiorno school of Italian and a few hangers-on came together to celebrate the ridiculous notion that there is a saint for epileptics and people who oversleep.  

A procession of flag wavers prostrated themselves through the dunes, to the calm waters of Geographe Bay, where St Vitus was dunked, and holy salt water was splashed with reverence. Following elite athletic displays in the quoits and sock toss events, it was back to the Villa for the serious business of canapé selection and medieval mingling mania.
