First night, leap day

Yesterday was leap day – that curious day in the calendar that I have marked here before. It was the first day of Writers Week this year, and also the first night of the Adelaide Festival, with a free concert in Elder Park to mark it. I went to WW in the afternoon and caught up with friends as well as listening to speakers. It was a beautiful day and it’s such a great setting. Afterwards I went with Nel to Elder Park where we chose a spot for the blanket and then I went off for a walk while Nel stayed with the rug. We were joined a bit later by Michelle too. It was a fab night – heaps of people in a happy mood, there to listen to Tim Minchin, who was witty and warm, followed by fireworks on the river (right next to us!!). I rarely see fireworks (they don’t feature at New Years in Auburn!) – so this was thrilling too.Β  I took heaps of pics on my walk around the park before the concert – here are some of them… (plus a youtube clip of Tim to give a flavour – he sang this song as part of the encore)
