Earth hour with Louise and Peter

For one hour on Saturday night, a good chunk of Sydney turned off the lights as part of a noble initiative called Earth Hour, led by WWF, the City of Sydney and Fairfax. Apparently electricity consumption for the city dropped by 10% - YAY!
We celebrated with a candlelit dinner with Louise and Peter at Treetops. I had grand plans that our stuffed zucchini would be cooked by 7.30 and we would be well seated by the time the lights had to go off, but best laid plans .... ended up finishing cooking using a head torch, but the spirit of the event was upheld, and we had a very pleasant candlelit evening. If only we could have Earth Hour every year/month/week/day?
