Mid Week Run – Wrap up

Mid-week Run 29th March, 2017

Although the photo shows clouds, luck was with us for most of the day.

The roll call included 5 Sprites, 1 Alpha, 1 BMW all the way from Queensland and 1 tintop.

A quick phone to the Pub to confirm lunch numbers and then we set off from Gepps Cross and headed north on a very scenic run and one with a bit of everything: straight urban roads, hills, country curves & a roundabout thrown in for good measure.

The halfway pitstop was at Kersbrook and the chance for some local shopping.

We rolled on through Williamstown, avoiding the bakery and the bikers. The weather was holding up and so were the cars. Plenty of admiring looks, particularly from younger people.

From Williamstown, we picked up the pace a bit; onto and Springton and then to our destination: Totness Inn at Mt Pleasant.

Gary & Faye Brock came back from their holiday so that made 17 for lunch. I think the publican was happy and the kitchen was busy. We started with nibbles and wine – driving can be hard work remember. A menu and wine list that had something for everyone seemed to be welcomed by the diners. One couple did find it necessary to make a bakery purchase for ron !!

About 2.30pm it was time to head for home in with the hope of beating the rain. We hit the rain around Charleston / Woodside and it stayed with us for the rest of the trip, but there were no problems that your scribe knows about. It seems a good day was had by all.

Reminder! MID-WEEK RUN – WEDNESDAY 29TH MARCH.

Meet at City  Dismantlers, Pt Wakefield Road, Gepps Cross from 10.00am for a 10.30am depart.

We will finish up for a pub lunch in the hills and try to be back on the road in time  to miss the worst of any peak hour traffic.

The 10 day forecast shows the temp range as 23 /14  and the is a chance of some precipitation, so fingers crossed.
