year the Club decided to go to Peaceful Bay for our camping weekend. We
had the sites booked for three nights from Friday (which seems to be a
minimum requirement on long weekends at most camp grounds these days).
Eleven members took advantage of this and went out on Friday in 37C
Saturday was cooler when Chris and I went
out in the late morning, Gary Carlsen joined us, we picked up Andrew,
Ronnie and Antoinet on the way. After putting the tents up it was time
for a relaxing late lunch.
During the afternoon more members and partners arrived eventually bringing the total up to 31. Some had come down from Perth riding bitumen roads and others gravel most of the way, but all enjoyed the ride. Rob Berryman who lives in Walpole came over for a visit.
We were camped in a great spot just next to the campers kitchen
which we used to cook dinner that night, there were BBQ’s and kettle
there. Trevor and Marg from Denmark came over, with Trevor saying that
he was doing a gig in the park that evening.
So quite a few of our crowd took their chairs over to listen to
Trevor who as usual was on form, as well as a visitor to the park who
played a few of his own songs, all good entertainment in an ideal
setting. We eventually returned to the campers kitchen where some were
still sitting at 10.30 when the lights went out, but there were no
noise police, having said that the campground was very quiet.
Next morning was a bit drizzly so the campers kitchen came in handy
again. It was good to see Jeff from Denmark coming over for a ride as
well as John, Jan, Reg and Clive. Great morning - nice and relaxing. It
was Chris’ birthday, so Happy Birthday was sung and Alex brought over a
couple of small cakes with candles. It was Ron’s birthday the day
Six of us then headed over to Bow River
for lunch, and later Huw and I went for a bit of a ride trying our
different bikes out. It was then time to relax back in the chair again,
chat and figure out the money. Daniel Webb rode over on his Ariel in
the afternoon as well. Later it was time for a few beers and light the
fire ready for the evening.
Two of our grandkids and friends came over and toasted marshmallows
- remember doing that? When we paid for the sites the managers were
very helpful and said they hoped we enjoyed our stay. Another great
