... culture at the Quarry Amphitheatre

Lou and I headed up to Sarah's then over to Floreat near City Beach to the Quarry Amphitheatre to see Perth City Ballet perform Carmen. What a spectacular setting ... a really quite small quarry in a part of Perth that is protected for its wildlife which has been made into a small amphitheathre. Very civilised it was too ... armed with our eski full of lovely picnic food and bottles of bubbly we met up with some of Sarah's friends and settled in for a lovely evening's outdoor entertainment.
The choreography was contemporary, the ballet dancers were outstanding and a group of flamenco dancers joined in the show ... it was absolutely fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Will picked us up after it had finished and we headed back to stay at Sarah's for the night (child free!!!). Louise had the common sense to go to bed after one glass of Nooky Delight (the previously mentioned very nice port from Margaret River) ... however, Sarah and I (not so sensible) stayed up putting the world to rights until the wee small hours after polishing off the whole bottle ... oops!!
