The Silly Season... Santa Ride 09 by JennyMac

The Silly Season... Santa Ride 09 by 

And now one just for fun……. : ))

I would love to say I planned this shot… but actually it was a complete happy accident!!

A random shot of some of the participants of the annual Santa Ride 09. The ride is held annually and raises money for the Huskisson Bushfire Brigade and the SES.

Last year there were 250 participants… this year there were 600!!

The night was a huge success. I just love the community spirit that comes alive at events like this.

Everyone gathered at the Husky Pub for music, sausage sangers and a free drink after the event. The weather had looked a bit iffy during the ride, but the clouds cleared and the stars came out with a gentle warm breeze as we celebrated in the beer garden overlooking Jervis Bay… It doesn’t get much better than that…. : ))
