Hello Campers!

Anyway, going back in time to Saturday, a few of us decided to have a BBQ. It was still sunny then, not a cloud in the sky. So we each contributed a concoction of goodies, and several different types of alcoholic substances in readiness of a feast…
 
Dave and Mark the Spark put together a jig saw luxury BBQ stand, which turned out to be a workbench with a slab of concrete on top (where it came from I know not). Hence we had 2 tools put together by 2 tools. I never did find out what role the plastic children’s ironing board thing played in all of this but never mind…

Everybody turned up together, it was a “bring your own seating arrangements” thing. (As well as your own food and drink). So we set up the chairs down the jetty, got settled in with a snifter (that’s an aperitif – I think). The conversation flowed and the rain joined in about 15 minutes later... I mean the heavens opened good style… And everyone ran inside TT, it was still very warm though, so we piled into the lux con. It’s rather strange that there were hundreds of people here (well at least 12) and yet I got no photos of anyone or the food…

But we would not be defeated, so Mark carried on with the BBQ under an umbrella while Dave cooked a load of stuff inside. Eventually it was presented on lots of plates in the kitchen, it turned out purrfect, against all the odds.
 
Even the rain gave up after a while - but by that time all the chairs were soaked. Good job TT is a widebeam, comes in handy that when weather dictates the scene, we always end up on here…
 
Here’s Tilly Mint Drop the cutest dog ever, making the most of the fact that nobody was in the saloon, whilst at the same time keeping an eye on Dave – or even the food…

I’m sure she’s more intelligent than we are…

Much much later on a few of us ventured out onto the jetty and put the world to rights. But by that time we’d got no idea what we were prattling on about anyway…
