Warwick had organised a few members to take part in the annual Browns Bay Santa Parade. We met at Warwick & Lesley's to decorate the Minis, wondering if it was going to rain as much as the forecasters had promised. But the rain held off- at least until a couple of minutes before the parade set off at 5pm, and then the clouds opened up. We were nice & dry in the Minis but poor old Santa on his sledge got pretty wet- but the crowds cheered and waved as we drove slowly through the streets, being careful not to run over anybody's toes as they scrambled to pick up the lollies we were throwing out for them.
All too soon it was over and we removed the sodden tinsel from our Minis before heading for home.
