there were fireworks

we don’t usually do the ‘stay up to see the new year in’ thing, but this year some good food, good wine and good company kept us going along easily… and it was worth the wait.

Melbourne is pretty flat, but our friends have a second storey balcony and their house is perched on the brow of what passes for a hill ’round these parts, so we got a fantastic 180° view of about 8 fireworks displays in the city and surrounding suburbs. It was excellent! We also threw water bombs at the kids… all around a really good night. Happy New Year!
