This Christmas the children, as usual, had some pretty expensive presents including a season's access to the ski slopes of Mt Ruapahu. However the presents that seem to have claimed the most attention on Christmas Day have been simple ones. Not the least of these are the bottles of bubble fluid and blower that everyone received in their stocking (including me!). So following on from the science of advanced bubble blowing equipment upon which I posted two Christmases ago in Bubbles I have discovered that considerable advances have been made in bubble blowing equipment in those two years. The new bubble ring design is as demonstrated by Catriona, right.
Wendy, in particular, seemed to be having a great time perfecting the bubble shower and speculating on how high bubbles can and do rise into the air. Certainly some disappeared from view before, presumably, bursting.
I was fascinated by the fact that in a shower of bubbles some appeared to reflect a spectrum of colours and some appeared completely clear and colour free. Chasing the perfect picture of a bubble occupied many happy moments on Christmas Day.
