Simba, Nala and the rest of us want to wish every one a Happy New Year and the best of everything for 2007!
Yesterday we went out to see Eragon (not a bad movie, probably more on it later) and then stopped by Marion Square just in time to see the fireworks go off. Nice little show, and the closest we'd been to fireworks for a long time. Lots of people milling about enjoying the lights and the concert going on just beforehand. Then it was a quick stroll down King St to see what people were up to (Mellow Mushroom seemed to be having a big to-do going on). Then it was back home for a quiet New Year's ring-in with some mandatory rice, collards and black-eyed peas, which the wife says are supposed to bring good luck for the year.
It's 20°C this morning and the rain looks like it's going to stay away long enough for us to make our traditional New Year's beach walk. See you later with pictures from Folly.
