As those of you who follow this blog will know, I am a big fan of Matchbox 20 and Rob Thomas.
Yesterday was the open-air Day on the Green concert starring Rob Thomas at Centennial Vineyards at Bowral in the southern highlands of New South Wales - a beautiful and leafy part of our state.
I had waited 7 months for this concert date to roll around, having bought our tickets back in July last year, so you can imagine how much we were looking forward to laying back under the shade of the huge gum trees on our picnic blankets, glass of wine in hand and snacking on home-cooked mini quiches, mini-pies, chicken wings and several kinds of cheese & crackers and enjoying the concert as the sun went down.
WHAT! No sun??? Umm, I think someone forgot to tell the weatherman that this concert was on yesterday - we woke up to bleak and dreary wet skies (again!) but thought to ourselves 'well this will be different' and off we headed with a group of friends to have a big wet adventure.
Boy! That's exactly what we got too! They say a picture tells a thousand words, so I don't really need to add much - these pics speak for themselves!
I'm glad to say that we had an absolute ball yesterday, rain and all. The concert went ahead despite the weather, and both Rob Thomas and Vanessa Amorossi were fantastic.
