Winter Wander

The mercury was reluctant to move above 4° as we left Rokeby this morning, luckily the climate west of Melbourne was relatively tropical at about 9° for the start at the Todd Road Service Centre .  On arrival most participants were found milling in the car park trying to decide if KFC coffee was worth the risk, no casualties were recorded.

The trip down to Cressy was uneventful with light traffic and sunny skies, we were met by Ean McDowell who had arranged for us to have a look around the historic homestead “Yarima”, those that had thick windproof coats enjoyed a brief tour of the immaculate gardens and shearing shed but the (ant)arctic gale eventually got the best of us so we headed for Ean’s nice warm pub at Beeac.

Great food, friendly service and a chance to see some very rare cars rounded off a very wintry wander.

Thanks to Rob Alsop and Ean McDowell.

More photos just added from Angelo Monteleone, thanks again Angelo!
