We all met at Quay St as usual with 5 cars ready for an enjoyable visit to Steve & Tracy Gable’s new venture near Gin Gin, the weekend was supposed to be a long weekend camp but due to many reasons only one couple could make it so Steve & I decided to cancel the camp & head out on the Sunday for morning tea & BBQ lunch.

 

We left at around 9:15am & headed down the Gin Gin rd to the Wallaville turn off through pleasant undulating road to Wallaville, where we had a comfort stop and some of the ladies had a tree identification class in the local park while the men discussed cars.


We continued on through Wallaville to the Bruce Hwy & to the farm which was not hard to find with a paddock full of Alpacas.

 

After morning tea with lamingtons from the local bakery (delicious) we had a guided tour of the new residence, Granny Flat , Workshop & paddocks & had teachings on the various traits of Alpacas, we also went through the gardens with an amazing selection of various fruit trees, looks like a real project for a great life style.

After our tour we fired up the BBQ & had our usual discussions on the state of the world in general & of course MG cars, around 3pm we all decided it was time to wander home so of we trotted with a promise to return.

Thanks to Steve & Tracy for a very enjoyable day

We all met at Quay St as usual with a good turn out of members, ready for an enjoyable day. Larry led us off in his Porsche to Coonarr beach via the Goodwood Rd with yours truly as tail end Charlie.

 

On arrival we found we had the place to ourselves and had a very enjoyable morning tea and walk on the beach and dabbled our feet in the ocean. Larry then produced a motor vehicle quiz which most of failed miserably while Stuart won the coffee voucher with 6 correct answers which was over double what I achieved.


After more discussions Larry led us away although Rodger and I were slightly delayed when Phyllis realised she had left her phone behind.

Due to some legal spirited driving we caught the rest of the cars and proceeded down Foley's Rd in to Childers and to Insane coffee.

 

Apart from Ian whose Steak was not cooked adequately the rest of us had a very enjoyable meal. Then, to finish the day off, Peter & Val’s Rover would not start, but with the wealth of knowledge in our group he was soon on his way much to Val’s relief.

Thanks to Larry & Brenda for a very well organised enjoyable day with good friends.

April at Agnes Waters & 1770

By Jacqui Mutton

 

What a glorious day to take a run up the coast to Agnes Waters and the town of 1770. 13 cheery souls all met in our usual place in 5 MGs, 1 Porsche and a lovely big red RAM - Denis wanted to stretch the legs on his new RAM!!!

It was an enjoyable drive to the little village of Rosedale where we sat under a huge fig tree and participated in our morning tea and the obligatory chin wag!!!  We then set off and headed towards the coast with such gorgeous countryside, so green!!  We drove straight through to 1770 scenic lookout, parked our vehicles and had a little wander taking in the beautiful scenery of Bustard Bay. A couple went up the hill and checked out the Wave Lookout. Just stunning!!


Headed back into the village, parked our cars and strolled up to the Beach Hotel 1770. Which took in the beautiful views of the inlet and ocean. 

After consuming our lunch, with an ale or wine, it was time to head off to our next venue.  A few decided that the view was toooo enjoyable, another couple had to race home and feed the alpacas and decided not to join in with the rest who went back into Agnes Waters to the Distillery.  After partaking of some very interesting mixes of fruit wines it was time to say farewell and head back towards Bundy.

A good time was had by all and like some wise person said, ‘We’ll be back!!”

Participants: Peter & Michelle O’Brien, Paula & Graeme Brown, Clive Pearce, Larry & Brenda Lipscombe, Denis & Imelda Logan, Steve & Tracy Gable, Jacqui & Ray Mutton
