Loaded up the trailer with boats and the Kombi with bikes and drove 168miles north east. As luck would have it a few other Brazibay owners did something similar so we're having a good catchup over a glass of cider.

Went mad in preparation for the forthcoming Ile de Re trip - bought: Plastic wine and champagne glasses, 50w LED rechargeable flood light, kids folding stools, elastic cord, tool box and cool bag. (most in a shade of blue, obviously) Still have a list for Funky Leisure. Can't wait for the cheap bubbly...can wait for the Amex bill!

Kombi (mini) convoy to Cromer, a few hours by the see then convoy back to Wells via a nature reserve/visitor centre where we bumped into vwpeppa (not in his Kombi due to a pheasant wanting to be a chicken.

Finally fitted the roof bars onto Stan's new rails and mounted the surf board.  Will test drive over the next few days to check it all works.

Finally sorted out the wiring issue with the roof mounted flip down TV screen.  Fault identified as a user interface issue!!!  Thanks for all your help Tim.

Repacked and listed all the stuff we have on board.

The idea of fitting a turbo to help lug it all around has given me a boost!

I had just finished my new newtown commercial seat bed covers and was set up for the summer  Very Happy

http://i86.servimg.com/u/f86/17/79/43/83/img_4611.jpg

But The VW dealer made an administrative error and pinched the registration to put it on my new golf.  Mad They give a loyalty discount to VW owners so had the documents for Buzz Shocked

Getting Buzz his plate back is priority 1 for this week!! Cool

Attached jet ski. Drove to Lagoona Park lake and met Tallulah. Reversed it down a slipway. Sheltered in it from the pouring rain and freezing wind. Made lunch in it. Reattached jet ski a bit later. Drove in convoy back to Tallulah's. Then tanked along the M4/M25 in lashing rain. Didn't miss a beat.

Loaded it with suits and lunch and drove it to Lagoona Park to meet Timv.

Drove home a bit later followed by Timv in Max and his jet ski.
