Remember remember the 5th November? Well we will as we went along to watch the fireworks in Wellington harbour. It’s the biggest fireworks show of the year apparently so we met up after work for a few drinsk with friends, then headed outside along the waterfront to view them.
I had great ideas about setting up my tripod and trying my best to get some decent fireworks shots….but after a few pints of Monteith’s finest that went out the door….it was limited to a coffee to warm us up, then resting on Ciara’s shoulder with my camera. Luckily the winds that were forecast held off until just after the fireworks.
Afterwards we stayed on after our friends and had a wee pub crawl which is quite an unusual event for us…and just as bloody well as we spent a small fortune. Mac’s brewery, Havana, Southern Cross…. Pretty much the same cost for a night out at home really, but we start to compare each spent to a treat on our road trip a fishing rod, jetboat trip or something else like that on our impending road trip!!
Someone had a bit more of a hangover than anticipated on Saturday so it was a bit of a slow start. I won’t give many clues to who it was, but it wasn’t me
