15/07/2017 Last night's firework celebrations for Bastille Day.

Maximum temperature 26C, minimum 11C.   15 km/h NE winds.  Dry.
Not the best photo as I did not get the lighting right, but the children all arrive carrying lanterns before the firework display starts.

The remainder of the photos are pretty self explanatory.  They were not easy though to take as there are many trees in the area.









Hope you enjoyed the display.  Fireworks are only used on special occasions here and everyone is aware of what is happening so all pet animals can be safely shut inside.
P.S.  If there is no blog tomorrow do not be surprised.  We will be out from sparrow until late so time for photos and blogging may not happen!

    1. Thankfully Jo they only have fireworks on special occasions, and at least everyone with animals is aware of the timing well before hand. We had a great weekend thanks Diane
