Pippa's Journey with a Brain Tumour

Oh What a Night!

on August 8, 2013

I was told by my very, very dear friend whom I love, admire, respect and trust that this period in our life is the opportunity (despite the effort and thoughts in doing so) to create beautiful memories.  Last night we did just that.

When we first started driving to RCH we kept noticing big billboards with the head of a beautiful white horse and the word “Cavalia“.  Eventually, we connected the billboards to an enormous white gracefully summited marquee off the Bolte Bridge at Docklands and knew there must be something magical inside………

With a special group of friends and family (11 of us in total) we sat four rows from the front at Cavalia in wonder and amazement.  The spectacle of 48 majestic horses entranced & mesmerised us while 36 acrobats continually took our breath away.  It was like nothing we had ever seen before and to watch the joy, awe and excitement on Pippa’s face literally brought me to tears.

    And what a night it was!! The horses and their riders, the acrobats, the costumes, the settings and the music!! Warm and cosy inside, but cold and wet outside. A night to remember!! XX

    How gorgeous does the night sound! Fantastic! Sounds like there was some very talented people and horses involved. I guess all those acrobatics may be something you could all be practising and we could look forward to a family performance in the future!
