Hi my dear people, hope you are well.
I mentioned in my previous post that the weather was glorious over our bank holiday.
On Sunday I joined The Sibs at a open air gig just a short stroll from where I live.
I'm here. Can you spot me? Here's a clue, I'm wearing this hat ...
My outfit was v. simple, for the day was HOT. White shorts, navy longline vest, silver oak leaf pendant, hat.
There are about half a dozen Sunday gigs on this balcony during the summer. They are free, I can take a leisurely walk to the venue and the sun is always shining. What's not to love?
(You may remember us recently meeting up with family on their room balcony, HERE)
Me, Bro and Sis!
A visiting Fleetwood Mac tribute band was performing. The band started well, then went into what I would term as more obscure FM material, a bit Nicks/Buckingham-centric. I never did think that this music genre suited their band's set up.
I have to say my jiggling and sing-alonging stopped and I disconnected a little. Much of the crowd seemed to start talking amongst themselves.
I started looking over the beach wall. I photographed a kayaker.
I photographed artistically positioned festival glasses, and yearned to be splashing about in that water, for the weather was very hot - perhaps I didn't stress that enough?
Oh and by this time the band had truly lost me. My thoughts strayed to OOTDs. I did a 360 from where I stood and observed that little dresses seem to be the thing for this sort of gig. So cool and lightweight. I resolved to pull out something light and summery and one-piece for the next gig, Blondie (tribute of course).
And of course, my clicking finger couldn't resist a festival gig selfie.
But then the band got back on track ... my track. They started back on the earlier stuff that we all know and love.
The crowd engaged with the band once more and there was much singing, dancing and air punching stuff. I think the band had worked out where they'd gone astray and clawed us all back into their musical fold.
So all in all, this was a super afternoon with company, weather and music (mostly) pitched just right.
I think this picture says it all - what a day!

For my Sibs.
Do you like this type of open-air gig?
Maybe music's not your thing. I know so little about you, so this post may be something you just scroll and move on from in the flash of a finger-scrolling flick.
But, as Fleetwood Mac would say,
A la perchoine
