Candlelight concert

We went to a lovely, intimate performance last night, sitting outdoors by Albert Lake. The string quartet performed selections from Handel’s water music and royal fireworks, and some Bach selections (Air on a G string, some Brandenburg concertos).

It was a fantastic evening! I’ve never sat close enough to follow along on the musicians sheet music before!

Tropical fruit world

On Tuesday we went to Tropical Fruit World, one of the largest fruit farms in the world. We sampled a wide variety of fruit, saw lots of interesting plants, and brought home some tasty snacks.
