On a day road trip in our 1965 Volkswagen Type 2 (T1c) Model 231 Kombi from Duncan to Port Renfrew by way of Shawnigan Lake, the main branch logging road through Koksilah, with the famous suspension bridge that could support fully-loaded logging trucks, father at full speed down one end of the bridge, through its natural dip, and mit Schwung up the other side, and the Harris Creek Main. Here we are enjoying lunch with the Rachel family (their second son Andrew ? just visible at the start of this film roll), my mother Doris Scharnberg, myself Stephan Alexander Scharnberg (a few months shy of my seventh birthday), my brother Felix Hayo Scharnberg, and my sister Anya Maureen Scharnberg (our youngest sister Alison Oona Scharnberg joining the family just over a year later). Fairy Lake picnic site and campground near Port Renfrew, Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada in summer 1969.
