The celebrations in our city coincided with a dinner/outing we had planned to farewell a couple of friends who are returning to Australia today. Each summer, this is the time we dread the most. We don't get to see each other lots during the year, and 2 months in the summer period isn't enough to catch up and exhaust all topics of conversation.
As per usual, we took heaps of pictures, and when i looked through them after i'd gotten home, i discovered more than half were of our dinner. LOL. We sure do love our food! We went to our favorite Japanese joint, The Jitsu.
And now, some pictures from the night:
