Well there’s usually always a highlight at Hash, often the welcoming of the virgins or a naming and Monday was no exception, so for a change I’ll start this week’s blog with the naming. I actually thought the name Celine was a bit lame for someone whose middle name is Dion but with some Irish ingenuity Urinal brought meaning to the name as he sung the Celine Dion song from the Titanic. The setting sun, the wind off the ocean in our hair and Urinals hauntingly beautiful voice transcended us to the deck of the fateful ship. Down down down down Broome Broome… Maybe it was one of those times you had to be there. Now to being there. Gantheaume Point. More than 20 of us, which is a record for a public holiday Monday, turned up for a Red Muppet run. For those of us who had been lured by the promise of Pina Coladas we were to be sadly disappointed. Obviously Red had little to do with the run part as it was actually a set trail through the scrub along the dunes of Minyirr Park. It must have been set by Muppet who had obviously made it safely through the dunes without her medical backup team. There were copious trees of pink ribbon to follow and then a long on home along the beach. Back at Circle Central Butterbitch lead the proceedings admirably and was handing out down downs for any reason he could think up. Softcock was back from wherever it is he goes to for the wet and Bogger, who’d got a lift to the beach, was in the circle for her little jaunt, leprechaun hunting in Ireland. As to be expected Sausages were the evening sustenance. There was some grainy bread for the health conscious, plastic cheese for the dairy component and tomato sauce as the vegetable. I do believe there were vego sausages on the bbq as well. The sausages were cut up into little bits like my mum used to do for me when I was little. Oh and yes there were lollies for sweets. All of this served up in one of the most beautiful locations in Australia if not the world. And only 5 bucks. What a bargain. Photos. Perky.
