Happy New Year



Last night, we headed into Melbourne town to watch the fireworks. The weather had conveniently settled after a nasty northwind 40 deg day and it was a glorious, still mid-20s. This year the Arts Centre spire was included in the launch sites and we positioned ourselves carefully.

I took some photos then fortunately my battery died and I could just sit in open-mouthed wonder.

Nothing like fireworks to start the year.

Happy New Year to you too, Claire:)

Love the pics. We watched the fireworks from our deck (about 50 kilometres away as the crow flies) and they were still spectacular.

Not quite as spectacular as what you obviously saw, but the up side was that we didn't have to leave home:)

Wishing you lots of fun, happiness and writing success in 2011.
