Tiptoe to Tuross becomes Come to Cupitts

 Unfortunately because of Covid-19 restrictions and an outbreak in the Eurobodalla the planned drive to Tuross Heads for lunch was cancelled when the selected venue went into a self imposed lockdown. A few quick emails and texts between the group saw us decide on lunch on the lawn at Cuppits winery in Milton, which proved a great choice.

 After the storms of earlier in the week Friday dawned as a beautiful tops down day. As lunch wasn't booked until 1-30pm it was a lazy morning before we left Jervis Bay for the 75k drive to Milton where we were to meet up with Anda and Brian and Anne and Graham. Unfortunately, for personal reasons Janice and Bill from Illawarra had to cancel. After a coffee and quick catch up at the Heritage Bakery we were off on the 3km drive to Cuppits winery.

What a gem this place is, the lawns had dried out and the great views across the ridges of Morton National Park made it a great place to spend a relaxing Friday afternoon with friends. Along with the menu on each table was a laminated sheet outlining all of their Covid-19 procedures and requirements, a good touch in these times. The Lunch on the Lawn menu although restricted provides a good range of food choices along with an expansive wine list and boutique beers, which suited all of us. .6 happy customers as our meals and drinks were all first rate

 All too soon the sun started to fall towards the ridges in the west and we found ourselves donning our jackets before saying our farewells and heading home, Anda and Brian and Anne and Graham would have been safely at home in Mollymook before Linda and I had made it to the Princes Highway north of Milton for our journey home.

 Another enjoyable day with our MX5 friends.
