|Our new Regal van|
Eden Tourist Park at Asling's Beach. Bill picked up a business card and noted the name of the owner? / manager? - turns out he is related to people knew in Wonthaggi. And I noticed that a recent guest book entry was from Ken and Bron Siacci, brother and sister-in-law of our friends Col and Wyonne Siacci. Then, when we went to ur site (en suite site 4) I noticed that the van next to ours had "It's a SULLI-VAN" painted on the back. Of course, my maiden name was SULLIVAN. The couple were Tony and Shirl Sullivan, from Wynyard in Tasmania. Beneath the Mk6 there was a quote which I presumed, but didn't ask, to be Welsh. I meant to ask Tony about it, but didn't. I wondered what signifigance it had. I've just looked it up on a translation site, and seems it means "No More". In other words, this must be the last van he is going to make!
Bill was convinced that another van in the park had an annexe of the same configuration as ours would be when we put it up. Even took a picture of it. But I disagree - from my memory of the photos of the annexe that came with our van it's nothing like the one in the park, but is just the same as the one we had on the Roadstar.
We went to the shops to get some coathangers as Bill thought the ones we'd had in the other van were too bendy.
The van is lovely. It towed well, the couch is comfy, there is plenty of storage. TV reception was good, using the aerial left int the van byu the orevious owners.
We went to the Eden Fisherman's Clubh for dinner. Very nice lamb roast for Bill and a yummy char-grilled pork cutlet (huge) for me. We put a few dollars through the pokies. Bill didn't do too bad for a while, but ultimately lost it again.
