 atkinson's dam weekend

Saturday 25th to Sunday 26th May, 2013

Despite the forecast rain we had a good roll up of around 16 campers/vans/tents and their owners and dogs. We welcomed a couple of new campers to the group, some who had travelled a few kilometres to join us, as well as Ian and D'sley who were returning from the Flinders Ranges CamperTrailers Group week long meet and Peter and Chris who are on a 12 month holiday and happened to be in the area. Matt and Wendy also boosted our numbers with their daughter and her family, and her parents - four generations all camping together.

It was also nice to see a few of the campers had friends in the area who dropped in to enjoy our view of the dam, and the fabulous sunshine that favoured us. The site ran into the dam itself so a number of the more active members were able to launch their kayaks and paddle around (or peddle in the case of Carol's Hobie craft). The birdlife on and around the dam was plentiful and added to the ambiance of the site.

Shirley McClure (Wendy's mum) presented a delicious home made fruit cake for morning tea. Many asked Shirley about the recipe which Matt obtained and typed up.

It was lovely to find a new place to camp and the sunny weather and good company made the weekend disappear all too quickly.
