It was a fantastic day for a drive around The Western Community taking a break along the Lagoon and finishing off with a good lunch at the 4-Mile Pub! Thanks to all that attended, we had a great time. For those unable to join us, maybe next time! Here are some photos …
Brits on the Beach
8 July 2018 (Sunday) Brits On The Beach in Ladysmith
It is held at Transfer Beach on the right hand side as you enter into Ladysmith (there are signs). We will be departing from Time Horton’s off Millstream Ave (same area as Best Buy/Future Shop) at 8:15 am-ish. It takes about 70 minutes to get there. It is recommended that you bring you own chairs, possibly sun shade and a picnic to enjoy. If you are planning to buy food at the concession stand, do it prior to 11:15 am or be prepared for very long waits in the queue. They are also asking for donations for the Ladysmith Food Bank. During the day, we can plan something to do when we get back. Follow this link for more info.
We will be having an afternoon drive on Sunday 15 July 2018 that will be approximately one hour and a half with stops and will end at a pub for an afternoon meal. Engines on at 1:30 pm-ish. We will meet at the Sysco parking lot at 2814 Amy Rd Victoria. Take the Westshore Parkway exit off the Island Highway and at the first roundabout, it is opposite the gas station. RSVP to Terry if you plan to attend, so I have an idea of how many of us will be doing it.
