On sunday morning Rommeij and I loaded up Morris (Maurice) for a day out at the Classic and Vintage Car show in Terenure (Dublin),complete with chairs, cushions and picnic basket.
The sun was shining and our spirits were high, the cushions, rugs and one of the Tilde dolls looked very sweet on the back seat. After overheating about 100 meters from the entrance, where we were swiftly assisted by my uncle, who came to our assistance by chance, we almost made it to the Morris Minor Club parking area. A helping hand from Denis (Chairperson of the Club) and from some other club members, saw that we soon parked Morris up near to his older cousin Morris Oxford (photo above). A huge big Thank You to Seamus, Denis and crew who put Morris back on the road.
I was delighted to discover this bus (exactly like the one I travelled to school in each day). There was so much to see.
These two Mercedes showed off their finery to much appreciation, rows and rows of cars, vans, trucks, clubs and enthuaists.
Rommeij was in celebratory mood as her collection is selling well at Om Diva in Druiry Street, Dublin. Click on her name to see her collection and on the shop name to see more photos.
She loved this VW van, reminding her of her family travels in Europe when she was younger.
The most exciting part of the day was meeting Julie M, fellow blogger over at Oh Well.. who was there with her beautiful Mini's, her family and other Mini Club members, who all made me feel so welcome. We had arranged to rendevous on line. It was so wonderful to meet Julie in person, because we have know each other in cyperspace it was so natural and easy to meet and chat. We left each other with hugs and a promise to meet again over the summer.
Morris took us home safe and sound, we were tired but contented after all the events.
