a night out

i'd rather stay at home on nye but miss lan talked me into going into the city to watch the fireworks at elder park.  we went by bus as the public transport was free from 5pm until dawn.  that's a great idea as parking in the city would be near impossible.  the bus was packed as expected and coming home we had to wait for a while but that's ok.  the fireworks were marvellous and we were sitting on the lawn very close to them.  so loud. they had a concert in the park and the cricket was on at the oval.  i felt like all of adelaide was there and as as you'd expect it was very crowded.  afterwards, we made our way to the casino to meet my son and dil.  i haven't been to the casino for many years and it doesn't look like it's changed much.  we watched my dil play blackjack and win for a while, had a drink and left.  i got home at 11.30pm.  the second lot of fireworks started at midnight and i was in bed not much after that.  i can see the fireworks from my bathroom and bedroom windows.  i slept like a log and was awakened, rudely i might add, by someone letting off a few very loud fireworks in the park at 5am.  i hope you had an enjoyable new year's eve.  i took lots of photos but they didn't turn out very well

  2. The last one is a beauty. You are good braving the crowds. We did it once a few years ago and used the trains but we were not impressed and decided not to go again. Its easier to watch it on Tv.
