It’s the start of a new decade. That is cause for celebration.
11 years ago, I watched the fireworks on this side of the world on New Year’s eve from a hospital bed.
(I went home Dec. 31, 1999, from knee surgery the day before.)
That was 11 YEARS ago! It’s completely amazing how quickly time can go.
Carrie and I realized two nights ago that this will probably be the only time in our lives that we will watch fireworks off the Auckland skytower.
A lifetime is a long time, but chances are good we won’t ever been in New Zealand again on New Year’s Eve.
So we stayed at our apartment with our friends Lucia & Ivo and Lucie & Dominick.
The fireworks show off of the Auckland tower was incredible! At one point, you can see the glass actually flexing about 1 second after the fireworks go off. This is the sound wave (from the firework explosion) as it hits the window.
The song in the video is Auld Lang Syne sung by Dougie Maclean.
Hope your New Year’s Eve was as memorable, and here’s to a prosperous and exciting new decade!
