It started Friday Lunchtime. With a few changes of Clothes and Enough Food packed in the van. We set off for Bartons Point. The weather forcast was frightening for the Saturday eveneing and we were a bit nervous. Heavy rain and Thunderstorms. And we were going to be right on the point. But nothing ventured nothing gained. WE were soon ariving on site and greeted by larry who was stewarding the weekend. After being shown whats what we found a spot and parked up. Chairs out and the van all set up we started to enjoy the hot sunny afternoon.
We met old faces again and chatted away. Saturday morning we laid in and apart from mavis letting louis out early for a pee we didn’t emerge untill about 10 am. Later in the day we took a long round walk . I think it was the longest walk we have done in a while. Certainly for me since my problems earlier in the year. Later in the day the watherfororcast was coming to fruition. Big spots on the heki were heard. Then some flashes and a bit of thunder. Nothing like the forecast. But we settled down to a bit of TV. Sunday morning The entertainment was coach loads of sea cadets arrived to take sailing lessons on the lakes. So with shouts of joy from all the kids we watched them move out , soon the safety boat was helping with capsized boats. Because the wind got up very strong and it was blowing the boats over. so the 3 help boats were busy. After a spot of lunch we gave louis a short walk and returned to sit outside in the sun. Joined by 2 friends we passed the afternoon away chatting. But all good things come to an end. It was time to start packing up and stowing the bits back in the van. With our goodbyes all done we set off for home. Only about a 40 mile trip. once back home a cup of tea was in order. Emails and blogs to catch up with. And so another weekend closes.
