The day was drawing to its climax.
The sun had reached its zenith.

Dizzy with anticipation,
we gathered in the ballroom.

Supper was begun...

Whilst the silent stage awaited music.

The floor awaited the tapping of feet...

And, slowly, the sun began to sink.
The ballroom began to fill.

And The Bonnie Blue Ball officially began!
