Sat/Sun August 31st/ September 1st 2019
From Friday onwards members of our extended family began arriving from north, south, east and west. My cousin organises the annual event and selects a Caravan and Motorhome site for us to meet up at and hold the annual bbq, this is our 3rd time at Ferry Meadows in Homer and we have stayed as do many of the family members in the local Premier Inn.
This year we were slightly down on numbers and had 23 in attendance ranging from 7 years old to my mother who is almost 97 years old, so many generations were represented.
The weather has been reasonably kind to us it has been dry with occasionally a cool breeze, this enable us to spend most of our time outdoors only retiring indoors to my cousins caravan for a nightcap later in the evening. It’s always good to catch up on every ones news and listen to their plans for the future especially as other family members are beginning to express an interest in motorhoming and envisage a future gathering where we circle the vans and motorhomes like a Western waggon train.
The site here at Ferry Meadows is as you would expect from a Caravan and Motorhome site, meticulously kept with good shower and toilet facilities and this afternoon Michelle has used the washing machine and tumble drier so that we start off tomorrow’s trip without any backlog of washing.
We are now about to tidy up and pack away this we have been using for the weekend so we can get off swiftly in the morning.
