A big thank you from John, Jacqui and nephew Chef Jonny.
John writes: “Wow folks, what a great evening we all enjoyed! Besides the exceptional dining experience, the friendships built through our common interest in ocean swimming is something we will always treasure. It’s inspiring to know that so many of our swimmers and their partners are keen to live life to the full and participate in whatever adventure or experience is planned. And we all are the beneficiaries, part of a merry band of swimmers, partners and friends. Besides swimming (that’s a given), bike adventures, bush walks, running, music, parties, dining experiences and of course laying turf …. the list is endless. Oh did I overlook Issi and her recent organised activities playing golf and bare foot bowling? How great for us “not so young ones” to enjoy the company and energy of our younger friends, exhausting as that might be at times ha ha!
Thanks to all who joined our group dinner last Saturday at Bawley Bush Retreat. It was very good of you all to help us support our nephew Jonny Staples in his pop-up restaurant venture. Getting the opportunity to meet Kathy’s friend Geoff and having our latest ocean swim members Jules and Rob join us, also made it a special occasion.
Jonny asked that we pass on his thanks to you and says it’s a pleasure to provide for such a wonderful group of guests. He calls you guys our other family. You might have noticed the hugs for Nanny and Poppy received from Jonny’s daughters Maisie and Evie who hold a special place in our hearts as does Jonny’s wife, Jules, who some of you met when we adjourned outside.
Ken did an excellent job of the food, venue and kitchen photography. He was rather taken with the stained glass windows, and took time to enlighten us with the names of the birds depicted in them. No prize for the noisiest table because we all put in a stellar performance with no clear winner. We’ve received some great complimentary feed back about the menu and the venue, which proved to be a beautiful tranquil spot with cool breezes and immaculate grounds.
Oh and one more thank you to all those who provided lifts. We were treated to a ride in Garry and Noelene’s Porche Macan … what a thrill. Jacqui would have been even more thrilled if she’d been in the drivers seat but the rest of us were quite happy with the designated driver.
Thanks again everyone! Looking forward to the next adventure”. Regards, John.
