Last night was Skyfire night. This happens every year as part of the Canberra Week celebrations. This year Canberra is 99 years old, so next year's celebrations should be really something. In previous years we have found a spot somewhere around the lake foreshore to watch the fireworks. There are literally tens of thousands of Canberrans doing the same thing, so it gets really crowded. So this year we booked on for a dinner cruise on the "Southern Cross". This takes you to a spot on the lake where you can see the fireworks with nobody in front of you. Mum got some great pictures of the fireworks (Dad calls them "crackers"; it shows his age). Here are some of the best of them. I think fireworks are great.
