Dropping Things

Hanne's first breakfast of 2012. (Delicious Raspberry Crepe)
We humans are very strange. Some of us go to a lot of trouble to drop things at midnight on New Year's Eve. In New York ( since 1907 ) they drop a crystal ball decorated with three thousand triangles of Waterford crystal. In coastal Eastport in Maine they drop an eight-foot wooden sardine. In Key West, Florida they drop a conch shell, a pirate wench from the top of a tall sailing vessel, and a drag queen in a glittering six-foot high red lady's shoe heel! Each of these at three competing shore-front bars. Do other countries drop things or is it just in the USA? In Atlanta Georgia they drop a huge peach. Hey! they should do that here in Penticton! After all, we are known as "Peach City"!
Today's photos are from New Year Day's morning in quiet "Peach City", BC.

We just look up to see the fireworks and perhaps drop the odd champagne cork.
I do like the idea of beginning a new year with a raspberry crepe.

I don't think we drop things - it's Big Ben's chimes and fireworks usually. If I were Hanne, I'd start every day with a raspberry crepe.

Special breakfast I must say. For us here in The Netherlands a bit heavy but it looks very nice.
