The weekend of March 25 was a relaxing one for me.
On Saturday, I went with Jamie into Civic just to check out the "city" of Canberra, chill, and get away from the base / home for a few hours :-) It was great to just hop on the bus and then spend a couple hours walking around Civic.
Then at about 5pm, the lovely Emma and Tamara picked me up and we headed to Commonwealth Park / Lake Burley Griffin, for Skyfire 2012.
It felt like we walked miles after we parked the car, but eventually we got a great seat at the centre of the stage, also with a good view of the lake - ready for the fireworks that would happen later in the evening.
|Delicious pinwheels that Emma and Tamara's Mum generously provided. Yum!|
|I love Australia :-)|
And before the fireworks began... We were treated to a dose of Justice Crew! If you've never heard of them - they were the winner of Australia's Got Talent 2010! =D
And finally, the fireworks started! Of course, it started raining about 10 minutes before the fireworks began ;-) Which really made for great photography*......
|*Note to self: Trying to take photos of fireworks (aka, looking upwards) from under an umbrella while it is raining, is a hard ask!|
|hehe, I just love all the umbrellas you see in this one!|
|The best one of the lot =D|
|Walking back to the car|
We finished the night by sitting in the car for half an hour? - 40 minutes? - waiting for the traffic to pass by. Even then, once we pulled out, it was a long time before we got out onto the road!
|A huge thank you to these beautiful girls for inviting me out for a night with them!!!|
