Bonfire night 2016

In 1605 a group of people plotted to kill King James I by blowing up the Houses of Parliament. Last night I took a steam train to a fireworks display. And weirdly those 2 events are directly related… I’m not sure anyone crowded around the bonfire in the railway yard last night was celebrating the preservation of the monarchy, but I really enjoyed the fireworks  🙂 Today is actual bonfire night but I went walking earlier so I haven’t gone out again. The explosions haven’t stopped since it got dark, and while it’s great to be able to see the tops of 4 displays at once from the balcony the irregular bangs have started to get to me – so the music is on loud tonight!
