View from the balloon, facing Town Centre and Upper Pleasure Gardens
Town Centre was unusually empty of activity the evening this was taken. It hosts many open-air vendors and activities, including a mock Christmas village in December.

The little space-ship-looking building is a local coffee shop but also serves yummy food and pub drinks.

The brownish buildings to the left of the photo house Debenham's - the one and the same that hosted fireworks in December 2006 off the roof of the building. Due to errant wind activity, some lighted debris and roman candle trails fell into the crowd gathered in the open town centre area below. No major injuries, but definitely a night to remember!

The woodsy peninsula at the top of the photo is the Upper Pleasure Gardens, which, despite its rather naughty-sounding name, is actually a photographer's paradise of flora and fauna. Ok well the fauna are limited to squirrels and an assortment of birds but the flowers do come out rather well on 'film'.
