Seafood Lunch at Pelican Rocks Café, Greenwell Point.
On a hot Spring day the little cars came from all points of the compass with their tops down. We had members from Cronulla, Southern Highlands, Illawarra, Jervis Bay and Ulladulla. Jeffrey and Pam led us on an easy run to Berry via Gerringong and Seven Mile Beach.
There was hand shaking, hugs and kisses when we met up with Linda and Robert Dowling who were waiting for us in a private room in the Garden Café. The other patrons in the café were a bit overwhelmed by all our loud laughter and chatter.
After about an hour and with Linda and Robert leading, the little cars took off over the twists and bumps of Berry Mountain. Descending into Kangaroo Valley and back up the hill to Cambewarra before cruising down into Nowra. Near the High School, a kangaroo fell into line with some of us before hopping off to greener pastures.
A refreshing sea breeze greeted us at Greenwell Point where another private area was set up for our group of 25 at the Pelican Rocks Café. Our immediate task was to read the Tsunami Evacuation Plan … 'Eat ya fish and chips…grab a beer…run like hell!!!!'
Well we did eat our fish and chips, salt and pepper squid, seafood baskets and prawn cocktails. We grabbed beers and wine but didn’t run like hell.
Those of us who visited Jim Wild’s Oyster Farm later in the afternoon ready to put oysters in the eskies were disappointed. Due to an algal bloom in the river no oysters had been farmed for the past three weeks. So seems as though we will have to do it all over again. Another fun outing.
