Our New Year celebrations were good. Very good! We had such a brilliant time. All togged up in fancy dress, homemade pizza cooked on the outdoor stove, lots of party games, lots of dancing and lots of booze. Well, lots of booze for most people!
I was determined to get up for the new year sunrise if I could but not at the expense of enjoying the party. I had a couple of beers before midnight with plenty of water in between and stopped after our new year toast. Having gone to bed around 2am I was up again just before 7am to get to my destination – The Strand. This is the opposite side of the river Orwell and one of my favourite spots for watching the sunrise, particularly this time of year.
There was quite a lot of cloud cover but I was keeping my fingers crossed there would be enough breaks to allow me to get a few decent pics.
As I pulled up to my usual parking spot I wasn’t disappointed!
