The Coldstream Flyers and their partners had a fabulous weekend away at Point Lonsdale staying at a local Guest House. No planes were involved but going by the speed of some of our members on their bikes, had there been a little more wind we may have seen a few bikes flying in the sky!
A few of us walked from Point Lonsdale to Queenscliff and back, some rode and a few drove. The weather was not looking the best in the morning but by lunchtime we had plenty of sunshine.
The Blue’s Train was the highlight of the trip. The Bongo’s transported us to Queenscliff Station around 6:00 p.m. where we stocked up on beverages and had dinner served on the station platform. Once everyone had eaten dinner, we were on our way.
There were 4 carriages, each with a different Blue’s band. We began our journey in carriage B. To enable everyone to experience each band, we swapped carriages at the 4 stops, stretched our dancing legs and replenished our supplies. At the half way mark, I personally was craving some twisties and thankfully the station store had a few packets left. Carriage D was the dance carriage with seating running along each wall allowing enough room for our members to boogie the night away. I think Simon was a standout on the dance floor! We returned to Queenscliff station around 11:30 p.m. with the Bongo’s waiting for us to take us back to the Guest House.
I personally had a fabulous weekend and on behalf of everyone that went, thank you Yolande and Theresa for organizing a terrific weekend.
And before you ask, we didn’t loose anyone or leave Leanne behind!
