The last 2.5 minutes of the Sydney New Year’s Eve fireworks. Absolutely unreal. This will definitely rank as one of my top New Year’s Eves ever. You can hear our friend Richard, whose boat we were on, laughing in the background. He was just as blown away as we were I think.

I’ve never seen so many fireworks in my life. Sorry, Halifax, but you got nothing on Sydney. The whole night was a wonderful time, as we pulled into the harbour sometime around 6pm, feasted on pita, dip, olives, prawns, smoked oysters and drank Gin n Tonics, champagne and red wine.

I normally get sea-sick so Tim, Richard’s brother (who you saw earlier in the previous video), was nice enough to construct motion-sickness bracelets for both wrists for me. I think they helped because by the time night fell, I was feeling much better. It was a lovely evening. The wind was low, it was somewhat warm, we saw a fantastic sunset happen right behind the Opera House and then we got to top it off with the best fireworks I’ve ever seen.

2009 has been good to me already!

Here are some pictures from the night:
