Saturday friends Elizabeth and Mary travelled down from Launceston and Perth respectively to attend the Annual Fashion Parade and lunch at the Royal Yacht Club. We have been attending the luncheon for many years always sitting at Dot Thorne's table. Dot is a very hard working lady for the Yacht Club raising many thousands of dollars over the years.
What a magnificient back drop - the boats, the view and wonderful sunshine - at times a little dull.
Jan, Peg and Marie are just some of the people at our table.
Jan very kindly took a photo of Elizabeth, Mary and I.
A very pleasant lunch was enjoyed by all in attendance - so much so I have only had a cup of coffee this evening.
Mary and Elizabeth left about 5.00 to travel back to the North of the State. A short time but precious time spent with two very good friends.
Tonight I have been lucky enough to catch up by Skype with Sandra and Wayne in Cheltenham - U.K. - they had just jumped out of the shower and getting ready for Breakfast and then to move further up north to Chester for a couple of days.
Also caught Marcia and John Holbrook who are in South Australia and about to head to W.A. in their Motor Home. Was nice to see them - Marcia was looking so well and rested. It is about 8 weeks since they left Tasmania.
