Ending Summer on a "High"

It sure feels like the end of summer now.  If ever there was even one in Blighty.  This here is the third and final installment of my posts on High Rockabilly.  It will be photo heavy!

Essentials of the weekend - HR Dollars & Wristband
I still have 4 dollars laying around... Wonder if I can use them somewhere ;) 

Travelling in style with the ladies!

Malin obviously could not decide what to wear; so she brought the lot!

Straight out to the pre-party on landing night!

Enjoy some Coco-Loco!

At Boro Bora Tiki bar

Malin and Sandra - after I took this I stood up and sat right back down.
I was swiftly walked back to the hotel *hiccup* 

Next mornings beach time which was lovely!
I actually only visited the beach once whilst the guys went a few times.
Not really my kinda thing to laze on the beach as I don't sunbath.

The said sunbathers, as I shaded under a parasol :P 

Impressive sand "castles"

Back to the hotel for the first Pool Party!

How amazing are they?! Loved.

The sun was doing funny things to us all!


First evening at the venue - priorities; shopping!

Mojitos all round!

Resting those dancing feet :D 

Missy Malone

We Three Girls!

It all happens again - Second day Pool Party

Marea showing us what she's made of.

The Parasol said to the Fan...

True Love

Indian for dinner that evening. It was yummy delicious!

Someone's hungry...

Sharon and Magnus had a spin on the dance floor

More music...

The 2 dollar(euro) bus

Hillbilly BBQ time next morning!

Look at those happy faces :D 

Japanese rockabilly by the pool anyone?

Have a listen...


Last morning of the Pool Parties which ran alongside the flea market :( 
For some reason I have no pics of the actual flea but it was bustling! 

View from M&M's balcony

Last night out on the town, so to speak!

 Last Tiki bar visit... more cocktails!

Last car standing.

That was basically it.  My first trip to Calafell for High Rockabilly.  To sum it up?  It was a great holiday/festival rolled into one.  Would I go again?  Hell Yeah!  Maybe I will see more familiar faces next year and meet more new faces too.  The only disappointment...?  No cuties!  Not sure how that was even possible but it was.  Lots of nice hair though.

When I receive my photo shoot images I shall post them for you all to see.  I am rather excited as it was a lot of fun and the scenery was amazing.  Damn it was hot though shooting in that weather!

Next up... The London Tattoo Convention for me this Sunday.  Fingers X I can actually get tattooed by Paul or Matt of Spider Murphys!  I have one in mind for them but if that fails I have others I can get someone else to do too.  Will let you know how I get on :D

Tara for now, but not for long.

Ps. I received my replacement earring from Bow and Crossbones.  I'm a happy girl.

Looks like you had an amazing time! Loved your leopard print Qi Pao dress...did you get it custom made or is it vintage?

Hi May

I had it custom made. I've been having more and more things made for me. It's definitely worth the time and effort.
