Just catching up on this thread!

That looks like a great way to celebrate the festive season Bonnie, but the people pouring the wine must have very steady hands! BTW, that is a lovely photo of you Bonnie :)

Loved the shots of the lake with the swans and ducks WWD - they are really atmospheric. That photo of the moon is so clear Penners - just amazing!

Thanks Aunty. We asked one of the servers and she told us that they were tested for "balance" during the hiring process. It's a good thing too because I found it rather difficult to keep my balance while walking through the cars - before drinking the wine. :roll: After a bit of practice I noticed that if you walk quickly and build momentum, it was much easier. Sort of like when you're a bit tipsy. ;) :lol: We had a lot of fun and the food was rather good too. :D
Be careful what you wish for as you just might get it.
