First up, an amazing dinner cooked at home on Saturday. Lobster! Read all about it here.
...Ah well, at the end of the day I guess we were there for the music and there is Very Good News to report there.
"Celebrate" the scene was set, and they ran with it - raising the roof with a 2 hour set of fantastic musicianship (their sax player is AWESOME, their lead singer throwing himself around with the energy of a man who knows how to enjoy living in the moment had the crowd in his hand from the second he bounced on stage). Culminating with a 3 song encore; a wonderful cover of the Travelling Wilbury's, "Handle with Care" (which happens to be only one of my favourite tunes ever), and their superb "Wish I knew You". And their third and final song; the melancholic and melodic "Soulfight"...what a song...what a message...what a band.
It's just easy listening music at the end of the day. But it's good easy listening. It's got edge, it's got soul, and it's quality. Really, really enjoyable night.
After a quick pitstop at the bike shop to get a tyre repaired and buying a drinks container for the bike I decided I needed some beach time. I had a lovely couple of hours to myself on the Southernmost beach getting some Vitamin D and contemplating life. 'Twas good.
Seriously though, there are awesome sunsets here, no two ways about it. And check out the photo of me below. There were some amazing para sail boarders out doing their thing right beside White St pier.
I do like weekends like this!
