August has been an exciting month of adventures. Claire and I had another mini vacation heading to the beach to see Bob Dylan in concert. We had a great time enjoying the ocean vibes and watching a great show.
We stayed in another Airbnb that was a lovely old house in Corrimal. It felt very homely and was a beautiful place to relax after looking around at the beach and local shops.
On the 20th of August, we headed into Wollongong to see Bob Dylan in concert. It was a massive relief that the show was going ahead (after Pink became ill and we didn’t get to see her). I was very excited to see a musical and literary icon in person. Bob Dylan has been a pioneer who has woven his magic into the very core of music and poetic expression. I was not disappointed!
He played a total of twenty songs that travelled across albums new and old. I think it’s important to note that his voice has changed as he has aged and older songs were not performed in their original arrangements. However, there was something so magical about seeing him sing, play the piano and the harmonica. There were moments where he would sing and play the piano while entirely captured by the moment. I thoroughly enjoyed it and couldn’t stop myself from dancing in my seat.
Camera and mobile phone usage were prohibited at the venue, so I don’t have any photos of the show. I do have some shots of the beach. 🏖
