Bus trips and similar outings are always popular with the Senior Community and members of our club are no exception. So when Roula Oueik from Community Wheels Inc. (https://communitywheels.org.au/) contacted the club our members were very interested in the bus facilitated outings.
We surveyed our members about the best days for a trip and possible destinations and selected a bus trip to Fisherman's Wharf at Woy Woy as a test event.
Fisherman's Wharf Woy Woy / Etalong
The trip took place on Monday 20th June 2022.
"We all met at the Senior Citizen's Club. Scottie the cheerful bus driver was there to meet us. When we left Scottie had a bus load of noisy, enthusiastic passengers who joked and chattered all the way to the lookouts where Scottie told us many interesting points about the area and its history."
"Scottie had drinks and snacks on the bus and when we arrived at Woy Woy Fisherman's wharf we had a huge appetite for the best fish and chip lunch. It was a quiet place with lovely views and everyone agreed that we were looking forward to the next bus trip."
Here are some pictures from the trip and we will be arranging further outings in the future.
Lily's Pad Cafe Leura
Following the success of our test event another bus trip was arranged to Lily's Pad Cafe in Leura in the Blue Mountains on Monday 15th August 2022. Here is the trip report from our Bus Travel Correspondent, Jill.
"Another fun bus trip with Scottie. Percy brought along some CDs to play and to sing along with. We stopped at Falconbridge to see the Prime Minister's Oaks. This is a park with a tree planted for every Prime Minister of Australia, some as old as before the First World War. Then we continued on to Leura for lunch. Lily's Pad Cafe was packed to the rafters and we know why. The food was delicious! Blankets were supplied and I was very happy to use one! After lunch we saw the Three Sisters at Katoomba and Scottie told us about the well known Aboriginal story of the three sisters and about another story of seven sisters which make up the Pleiades star cluster. We also went to some lookouts with great views. The home made chocolate shop was a further treat and they did a busy trade with the group from our bus."
"Another enjoyable trip!"
Sorry there are no pictures this time, they were obviously having too much fun.
Our next bus trip is on Monday 19th September to Bowral Tulip Time 2022, everyone welcome, details at the club.
