Bonfire Night

I didn't take any photographs this year, I'm afraid... sometimes it's nice to just stand and enjoy the fireworks with your eyes. And they were amazing fireworks. It's a good job, though, because in York they've banned all bonfires, so the fireworks were all we got. We went with my Mum, Dad and Joe down to the Acorn Rugby League grounds in Foxwood, where 'York's Best Firework Display' was being held, for £1 entrance. Lots of people were standing just outside the grounds, but I was really glad we went in, because standing right in front of where they were launching the rockets was a breathtaking visual experience. I suppose in our age where we're so impressed by large-screen TV's, a firework display several hundred feet of colour into the night sky, really reminds you how good 'real life' can look.

Cara and Felicity both watched with great interest. Looking back at the crowd behind us showed about the same expression on everyone's faces. It's great to be out on Bonfire Night!
