Guy Fawkes on Mayling

While we were in New Zealand Jason, Ethan and I got to watch the Wellington Guy Fawkes fireworks on the harbour on Jason's parent's boat Mayling. It was a great way to get as close to the action as you can and a spectacular Wellington evening.

Here we are leaving Evans Bay Marina with all the family.
As the sun went down we got some lovely lighting for photos!After a great dinner down below deck we were treated to a special sunset.
I was worried how Ethan would react to the fireworks as the "boom" sound is amplified on the water, we had some ear muffs for him, but as it happened he didn't need them at all... once again, our little boy proves that he is wide open to experiencing new things!

Wellington put on a great show for us all!
All in all a fantastic way to spend an evening! Family fun, good food, a couple of drinks (diet coke for some hehe), a calm evening on Wellington harbour, a beautiful sunset all finished off with a massive fireworks show! A night to remember!
