    Perfect weather for the Manly Surf Festival start. We all met at Tanya Park, the promoters and support team were well prepared and made things very pleasant for us, even setting up a BBQ at the start, which was a welcome breakfast. The view from that spot is unreal too. The convoy was an easy drive, and parking was a breeze - only Manly was really really packed to the brim. The range of Kombis was good to see, many awesome rides there today. Was good to catch up with everyone and meet a few more Kombi nutters like us.

    We met up with Dennis who owns and runs a VW restoration business in Rotterdam (which he has been running for the past 10 years) - Dennis, his wife and his parents have been in Australia for a few weeks touring around. They hired 2 modern campers and have enjoyed the trip so far, with only 4 days left. During their last few days here they plan to see a few sights in and around Sydney and The Blue Mountains, and then are off, back to Holland.. already planning their next trip here.

    Great shots Frank :cool: It was nice to finally meet some KC'ers & put faces to names! A big thank-you to yourself,Geoff,Greg & Mick for making Kim & I most welcome at our first Kombi rally - It was a really well organised & run event, that went all too quickly for us. A shame we couldn't hang around afterwards at Tania park, but Kim had school stuff that needed "attending to". We both look forward to catching up at the next cruise.
    Cheers, Mark
