Golden Gate NP - Something different

Unread postby harrys » Mon Nov 09, 2015 8:05 pm

Sunday 15 November we will be on our way to a brand new destination, this will be the first time for all off us in Golden Gate NP :dance: 8)

What makes it even better is that we are going as a family, Bookworm, Tataruka, SO and MIL and FIL we always have a wonderful time together 8) :dance:

I have no wish list all I want is that we all enjoy the park :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:
