Yet again Russell and Judy Schmarr excelled themselves with a well organised and interesting ‘mystery’ mid week run.
Starting with a nice gaggle of sprites, midgets and assorted moderns, we headed off from a new starting point of the JB Ware reserve in Glen Osmond.
With a short run up the SE Freeway to the Eagle on the Hill turnoff saw the group work our way up to the Measday lookout and the old route into Adelaide through the hills.
Then thru Stirling, Aldgate and Hahndorf and out onto the old Melbourne road through Dawsley to Kanmantoo for a quick refreshment stop and then to Murray Bridge and crossing the old road bridge.
The route now took us toward our intended destination of the new motor racing circuit at Tailem Bend. Unfortunately due to a corporate booking our plans for lunch at ‘The Bend’ had to be changed and we only had a quick look at the outside!
Luckily Russell was able to book us into the Riverside Hotel back in Tailem Bend. Many of us have probably driven past it for many years on our way to the eastern states without a thought of stopping. However it is a nice pub, good food with a great view of the mighty Murray River.
A great day out, although Tina and I got a little damp on the way home!
