Bush dinner

At Hopewell this is a very special occurrence when we get the chance to spoil people like this; this is called our bush dinner.

 

During the day the wind was howling and the clouds were blowing over Hopewell. The chances of having a bush dinner were getting less and less and more clouds rolled onto Hopewell. We decided that we were going to try and push for the dinner, make it special for our guests and make sure there were enough fires going to keep them warm. Once everything was set up, there was not a breath of wind and the sun was setting on a clear sky. When the guests arrived they were absolutely amazed at what they had walked into, lanterns up in the tree, two big fires burning and their dining room table was set up to be a candle light dinner.

 

Here are some of the photos taken that evening.
