I saw my first Opera – Don Giovanni – at the Estates Theatre when I visited Prague, Czech Republic. This is the view of the chandelier from our balcony seat. You can read more about my trip on my blog. Apologies for the broken photo links. That’s on my list of projects.

Prague, Czech Republic
Tonight I attended the Moonlight Concert in Paradise, as I try to do most every year when it’s held in August, as a fundraiser for the local community hall. Rumours have it that there were approximately 700 people in attendance! This included a new couple from Pennsylvania who were married that afternoon. One of the band members proposed to his girl after the second set :) This is a Big Band concert with the Annapolis Big Band, featuring Donna-Lynne Holmes. It’s always a GREAT time. Entrance cost is a free will donation and they sell 50/50 tickets (tonight it went for over $450… and I didn’t win! *pout*).
If you’re in the area next August you simply MUST try and visit! You never know who will be there :) This is the first time we’ve had a couple come here from their wedding and one year there were even a group of very good swing dancers in the audience!
The event is held on a beautiful estate and people bring their own chairs and often even picnics. Some go all out and wear nice clothes and bring a fold up table with a table cloth, full spread and champagne. And don’t forget the candles
It was a wonderfully warm evening with a mostly clear sky. Even the moon cooperated and came out nice and full!
A dark misty morning.
Apologies for it being kinda blurry. I had no tripod and the bus was coming! I was a bit rushed :P
I did post a photo last night but it was on my posterous. But I just looked at it and it’s all blurry. Stupid iPhone. I want a re-do! So here’s a bonus Day 101. It’s of the Victoria Hotel at Hollis and Morris in Halifax that I took yesterday.
And Here’s today’s (Day 102):
