With Spring in the air and the Winter Solstice well in the past, it was time for Russell and Judy Schmarr to dust off the previous Meander that did not occur due to poor weather.
So in bright sunlight our Spridgeteers and a few others gathered in 10 cars at Blackwood Railway Station to set out at 10 am on the Sprite Club’s Mid-Week Meander – Southern Sojourn.
Our route passed through the beautiful green paddocks and gold flowering wattles in the Adelaide Hills via Ironbank, back of Echunga on back roads less travelled, through Paris Creek to Strathalbyn. Here we stretched out in warm sunshine for morning tea at 11.00am.
Leaving Strathalbyn on the Ashbourne Road, we had clear views to Lake Alexandrina and the Southern Coast from the top of the range then down to Ashbourne, past Cox’s Creek, through Mt Compass then down Old Willunga Hill Road to enjoy a tasty pub lunch at The Alma Hotel.
Special thanks to Russell and Judy for organising this Meander. Please keep an eye on the calendar for the next one!
Thanks to Don Williams, Steve Leane and Russell and Judy Schmarr for the great photos!
