Celebrating New Year’s Eve in style…
We can pretty much disregard the 30th December because it was a complete nothing day. New Year’s Eve was a different story though!
Day 221 – Friday 30th December 2016
Every now and then there’s an awkward day of “let’s do nothing today an save our energy for tomorrow” and today was one of those days. Greg and I spent some time at the beach, then Abbie and Hannah joined us to go shopping for NYE alcohol, but that’s about it. I know you’re probably only here for photos and videos of the New Year’s Eve though so let’s move on shall we?
Day 222 – Saturday 31st December 2016
Right, I’ll keep it short. We filled a couple of cool bags with with 14 beers and 6L of mojito, then headed for Milsons Point where we arrived at around 14:00 and marked our space with Beach towels:
Given that we spent ten hours sitting on a concrete floor, the wait fireworks wasn’t as bad as it may sound. We had a perfect spot next to the Harbour Bridge with a great view of the Opera House, and the fireworks were absolutely breathtaking:
Here’s a couple of videos taken on Greg’s iPhone:
Also, if that wasn’t enough for you, here’s the official SydNYE video too:
I guess that’s it for 2016 then. Thank you so much to everybody who’s still taking time out to read about our day to day lives – it genuinely means so much to us. We’ve had the best year ever (so far), and can’t wait to see what 2017 brings. Happy New Year to all of you x
