Keeping a close eye on the clouds and consulting the weather forecast still proved to be of no use when the rain came down on Sunday morning en-route between Bedfordview and Vereeniging for the inaugural breakfast-run of 2018. But not before we had an opportunity to meet at the offices of Les Michaelis Insurance Consultants.
Thank you to Brett Michaelis, and his team, for hosting the start of the day by providing steaming coffee, tea and muffins as well as complimentary gifts for everyone to enjoy.
We departed just after 08H30 and made our way to Three Rivers Lodge.What a gem!It is a Wedding venue, Conference facility and lovely Lodge with safe parking within perfectly manicured gardens and impeccably kept grounds.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by friendly staff and shown to the Raduno hall which had been prepared for us, complete with perfect linen and fresh flowers on the tables.
The buffet breakfast was top quality and more than enough, even after many of us went back for second helpings.
A constant hum of conversation could be heard drifting out of the hall with an occasional laugh and giggle indicating that everyone was having a nice time over breakfast.
Mingling and socializing amongst everyone meant that nobody felt left out and it was a pleasure to have Grant Usher, the Chairman of BMW Car Club Cape Town with us for the day.
The venue is also the address of a magnificent Italian Restaurant, Anna’s Kitchen and a number of us walked across to the Restaurant to enjoy a glass of wine and lingered over lunch in true Car Club-family style with extra chairs being added as people joined our table until late in the afternoon when we reluctantly said our goodbyes and made our way home.What a nice day!
