Ernie Miles' 2nd Annual
Volkswagen Camping Weekend





With tropical storm Daniel bearing down on Nova Scotia we had second thoughts of attending 
Ernie's VW Camping Rally but were told that he had plenty of inside space if things were to get a bit wet.
Well wet they did get but with the great hospitality of Ernie and his son 
Mark things couldn't have been better.
When we arrived on Saturday we were pleasantly surprised at the number of VW's already at the site.
These VW camper folks are a hardy group with units ranging from a 1966 to a 2000.
The weekend consisted of meeting a lot of new friends, view Ernie's 14 antique cars,
washer toss (washers or poker chips can be used) and a good evening...
and a good evening of food, drink and music.
The visitors came from as far away as Yarmouth, NS to St. Martins, NB and all points between.
I tried to include everyone in these pictures but if I missed anyone it was not done intentionally.



Saturaday evening we all moved inside for a good evening
of food, drink, music and a game washer toss.

 People of all ages attended
 Some serious
 Some not so serious
 For a while we thought the weekend was going to the dogs
 And let's not forget the food
 There was plenty for everyone
 Some of the new friends we met
 We all enjoyed the music
 Did I tell you it was raining??
Blue is the in colour this year
 We had the very best music in Bishopville
 These highly paid musicians put on a good show
But they just couldn't play until they got to that corner
The door is close at by if things were to get out of hand
Now how about a game of washer toss but don't hit the 53 Chev
Make sure you have the rules right.

On Sunday Morning Ernie moved is collection of cars out doors so we
all could enjoy them.The Honda was of particulat interest to all.
Apparently it is on of three in North America, with Jay Leno owning
one of the other two and the third one in Halifax in parts.
Ernie ownes a total of 14 Antique cars.
