Just like that old time Rock n' Roll6:54 PM
I'm so sorry I've been AWOL this last week! Firstly I was frantically trying to finish my final assignments before the end of term, and then once everything was behind me and I had time to blog, our modem decided it had had enough and crashed, so for the last few days we had no internet. It's horrible isn't it, how much we rely in the web; I certainly felt it's absense, with no googling, no facebook, no checking etsy, and no blogger reading list to check for wonderful vintagey posts! Oh no! needless to say, there was lots of catching up to do today when we got it back :)
On Sunday afternoon, Jordan and I drove to Birdwood (nestled about an hour or so into the hills from Adelaide) for the Rock n' Roll Rendezvous. I'd never been before, so I was pretty excited! Unfortunately, I slept well past my alarm so we were only there for the last couple of hours. But we had so much fun! The day was beautiful, and the country surroundings were stunning!
I've never really been a car person, but these vintage hotrods were really something else. I found myself falling in love with the colours, the chrome, the detailing! Jordan and I got really snap-happy. A photographer's paradise!
This was my favourite of the day, a gorgeous 1956 Buick Century, in black and white with red on the tyres. So classy! I wouldn't mind a ride in it at all :)
Amongst all these stylish cars, there were also some very stylish people.
I loved all the matching couples!!!
I told Jordan that he and I are going to be like these two and match when we're old! I think he thought i was joking. I'm totally not joking :P
Right in the centre of it all was a stage and a giant wooden dance floor, which for the whole time we were there was a flurry of circle skirts and tapping of black and white brogues. Though Jordan and I didn't dance ourselves, we enjoyed watching for a bit.
And that was our afternoon!
We drove back home to stunning autumn leaves in Stirling and Cherry Gardens, and as we came down the hill the setting sun made the sky rainbow! It was so pretty.
