Report 25 February
Around half past nine we are expected to be at a meeting point near our campsite. A tour ride has been organized. We meet a number of old acquaintances. Including Kathryn from Christchurch, she rides with Dirk and Trudy. The ride goes through the suburbs and industrial districts of Ashburton. At lunchtime we drive to the estate of Donald and Carol Williamson. Here large white tables are prepared with coffee, tea and all kinds of delicious cakes. The owner talks about the origins of the estate and invites Dirk to take a ride on his Benz 1887.
The next stop is Bruce Mc Ilroy’s garage. There you bring your Bentley or Rolls Roys for a maintenance break.
Here is a photo report of this day.
