Although today is the 5th of November, and is therefore the real Bonfire Day, we have our Guy Fawkes day on the closest Saturday to this date.
After a wet beginning to the day, the sun began to shine and we ended up with a gorgeous day.
Here is the first load of combustibles being put in situ.
This load consisted of some combustible material. The rest of the load consisted of helpers.
And this load had combustibles, helpers, and an extra fellow, who comes to join us each year for our Bonfire.
The night was perfect: a gentle breeze, clear skies and temperatures above freezing.
Here are some of the cousins, wrapped up and having a great time.
Do you see what I see? Bruce and John Wayne normally have their fireworks beginning on our Bonfire Night, but their time of fun hasn't yet begun.
Awww ... aint they adorable?
Y'all don't need to answer that - I've already told them they are.
