On Saturday morning Ronnie,
Antoinet and me (Ronnie’s dad) left Torbay to go to Walpole for the
camping weekend. We had a coffee stop in Denmark and off we went for
the last stretch to Coalmine Beach. The caravan park lays next to a bay
in a beautiful part of WA.
When we arrived at the camping spot
lots of club members welcomed us, later on in the day it got busier and
busier. For me it was great because I remembered lots of people from
last year when Annie and I were both here.
At the end of the day there were between 40 and 50 people from
different parts of WA. For someone like me from Holland it is amazing
that people travel that far for a camping trip. If we drive 200 or 300
km in Holland, we’re in another European country!
During the day you meet lots of people, have a chat, it’s very hard to remember all their names but I enjoyed myself very much. In the evening we sat around the fire listening to a musician ("Lefty" Wright) singing songs and playing his guitar.
It’s great to see that all the club members and
visitors are there for each other if someone needs help.
From far-away Holland I wish you all lots of fun riding your bikes and enjoying camping trips like this one.
Maybe I’ll catch up with you at another event of the Albany Classic and Vintage Motorcycle Club.
