First night of fireworks

Click here on the Kat Kam see the ever growin' gong show in English Bay as the clock winds down to the first night of the HSBC Celebration of Light.

This year Canada, China, South Africa and the UK are competing and it is a light show set to music. We can't ever seem to be on one of our own boats as we usually end up working on the charter boats instead. The money is too good to pass up. However, the Streak is going to be out there too and so at least the Laliberte's and Bui, Greig's son and his friends will be able to enjoy it, sans us. Too bad we lost that anchoring buoy off the sailboat from last summer. It was so handy for this exact purpose.

Looks like its going to be a great show. We used to have a couple of nights Fworks ( at the park) after the end of season but at £27k per night and complaints from neighbours that it was remeniscient of world war two (and the nighlty bombings therof) we decided to stop them. Enjoy, I always did. :o))
