The birthday boy got to celebrate his special day with his caravan club buddies yesterday. Another year older – but is he any wiser? This is a “close to home” rally, we travelled about 1km down the road to Levin Holiday Park. We celebrated with a couple of cream sponges and some home made chocolate balls at afternoon tea time, enjoyed while sitting out in the sunshine.
What’s better than a selfie photo? A groupie – of course. Using the delayed timer function, Robin set the camera up on a small table, then rushed back to sit down before it went off. It took two tries to accomplish this feat, he just didn’t move fast enough on the first attempt.
Robin’s Mum came calling during the afternoon, on the way down to a medical appointment. At nearly 91, she is finding it hard to get around these days, and has recently acquired the loan of a wheelchair. It was a bit hard for her to get up the steps into our caravan, but with a lot of help she finally made it. She hadn’t seen our new van, and she was most impressed. Robin’s parents had a Zephyr caravan many years ago, and he can remember many happy trips in it. There was time for a cuppa and birthday wishes before she was whisked away for her appointment.
