The Weather Bureau has been predicting the four horsemen of the apocalypse, Antarctic gales and something about a vortex for most of this week, after that sort of scare mongering you would have expected no one to turn up. However at least 10 hardy Lancias accompanied by their owners and partners made short work of the glorious Gippsland countryside visiting such exotic locations as Caldermeade (great Pies) Wonthaggi (coal, wind and desalination plant) and various bits of wonderful coastline. We ended the day driving via Inverloch to Meeniyan for a rest, restorative drink and food at the local pub.
Wednesday started with various participants driving up and down Meeniyan’s busy main street in search of breakfast eventually ending up at the café where very little muesli was consumed. The now groaning Lancias then set off in a semblance of a convoy and headed for the spectacular Agnes Falls 43km away (see photo). After consuming the equivalent of several rolls of film we set off for Mirboo North to have a look at Colin Kiel’s (more photos) excellent car museum then onto Escargot Café for a snail or three.
Thanks to Russell Cayley for a great run.
