Front row seat at Riverfire last night as I was driving the Cityhopper ferry. Prior and after the show was an adrenalin rush too. Manouvring amongst so many moored and moving vessels. Reminded me a bit of New York harbour at peak morning commuter time a couple of years ago or maybe a Sydney to Hobart yacht race start!
