    Fabulous weather today for our cruise and photo shoot. We left the park at 8.30am and headed over the Swansea Bridge and headed for Belmont 16 Footers carpark - shame there were some responsible drinkers from last night that left their cars scattered through the car park but never mind. An amazing 116 kombis parked up - caused a bit of traffic chaos but too bad - it cleared pretty quickly. Due to limited internet access here until I get home, here are some photos from the drone, I can't do the videos. I am sure there will be plenty more photos posted.
    We cruised on after Belmont to Speers Point roundabout then back to Warners Bay. This gave people a chance to have some lunch, grab some shopping or just walk around. Plenty of people stopped and looked, waved as we drove past, but hopefully it gave a lot of kombi owners a chance to see what a great spot Lake Macquarie is.

    Thanks for sharing Mel! :)

    You would have thought for such an important pic, Phil would have bothered to park his T3 straight and parallel........but no!o_O

    :p

    Thanks for the photo.It was a really great day.It was worth the drive up for that.:D:D
    I thought the foreign car stands out more in the middle. He has parked it parallel but only to the other side of the car. That poll is in is way to straighten it up any more.:rolleyes:

    Heh, I was parked next to Phil, was watching him try to square up. Nice to have two yellow T3's side by side but I needed my sunnies to cope with the shine off his flash new paint job. Was great to have the chance to join in on a local komvoy, the spectators along the side of the road looked like they really enjoyed it..my 3 kids had a ball waving to them all.
