Fireworks in Hyndland

Entry for 4 November 2007:

Guy Fawkes Day is tomorrow (5 November), but most people have been celebrating this weekend. Actually, it seemed quieter than last year until about 7:30 tonight, when a large fireworks display started in the Rugby Field about a block behind our flat. Going into the second bedroom, which we have now fixed up as a study, I turned off the lights so we could see them better. We were treated to a half hour fireworks show that seemed to go on and on, starting up again every time we thought they’d finished, and finally just stopping without the extravaganza blow-out finale typical of American fireworks performances. No matter! We enjoyed our Guy Fawkes Day celebration from the comfort and warmth of our flat, an unexpected bonus of living in Hyndland.
