Not a bad turn out
Our first afternoon meeting was well attended, and our Chairman arrived on time to lead the convoys to the West of the island.
Our meeting point, on this sunny Sunday afternoon was the Jardin de la Mer car park, in St Helier, and our straight line (well nearly), sticking to main roads, path took us to Jersey Pearl at the end of the 5 miles road for well deserved teas/ coffees, scones and cakes. I’ve even seen some hot chocolates being served to some of our group partial to sweet things. Parking there was a bit hickeldy-pickledy as we had to slot in between cars that were already there but we managed to squeeze ourselves in…
Nice to catch up with nearly everybody, we raised a cuppa to our absent friends that for various reasons couldn’t be with us today, well life happens after all !
I feel the need to give a special mention to Ricky who turned up with his blue 2cv for the 2nd time and Clive & Sylvia who brought back their 2cv, all nice and shiny after having been to the body shop following an argument with another car who had tried to climb on its back… The cheek ! Nice to see Phil and James back for a spin in their white 2 cv too. 😀
Having missed, the last meeting due to work commitment, I was pleased to be able to join the gang today, although, sadly, I had to attend without Titinne as she is still in the car hospital having major surgery. I’m sure she’ll have something to say on her blog about me going without her when she gets back… But I wasn’t the only one ‘sans’ 2cv as Steven and Lynn had been unable to get theirs out of the garage as a pesky scaffolding post was in the way. They came though, so Kudos to them !!!
Next meeting on Sunday 4th December – meet 10:00 am at St Catherine breakwater (earlier if you want a drink) and leave 10:15 to go to the Splash for breakfast at 11:30. Our lead car, route plotter will be Phil Rondel, who kindly volunteered his services 😉
See you then
