On Wednesday Laura and I had a wonderful night at the ballet.
performed by the Australian Ballet.
Something we had planned months ago.
Timed to come after the rush of end-of-year events,
ballet concerts etc.
And inspiration for we two ballet dancers.
Lately the days have been dark and cloudy
or brilliant sunshine
and we were fortunate to have
an evening of sunshine.
As we arrived at Circular Quay a ship was leaving
People were watching, and partying.
A brilliant atmosphere.
We soaked it up for a while
and then headed to the Opera House.
Seeing the last of the ship
over the other side of the point.
It was our first time at the ballet,
fun to dress up for a night out.
There were quite a few girls around Laura's age
also wearing beautiful dresses.
(And who knew that canapes would be served?)

And then the ballet itself.
incredible violin solos,
and precision I never dreamed of
(how do they do it??)
Definitely a night to remember.
