Mazdas at Milton and Tuross Lunch Run

The first coffee meeting since being confirmed as a new chapter. Annabel’s at Milton was the venue and existing members Robert Armstrong and Gerda Jackson, Tony and Johnnie Badger, Bob Downing, Peter Diven, and prospective members Craig and Alison Bishop, and Frank Stevens and Carol Rowe joined us for coffee and a short meeting. The web site, the Facebook page and proposed events were the topics for discussion.

At the appointed hour we mounted our steeds for the run to lunch. Leaving Milton we ran the gauntlet of traffic lights and roundabouts, reforming at the Ulladulla Ex Servos before continuing our journey. An uneventful trip of about an hour saw us at our rest stop at Batehaven meeting Ray Kapel who had driven up from Narooma to join the run.

The run proceeded along the coast road through Malua Bay and Moruya Heads, enjoying the terrific coastal scenery and relatively clear roads.

The seven cars in the convoy proceeded through Moruya and turned off to Tuross Heads. Smoke from the Victorian bushfires permeated the air but did not put us off enjoying a great seafood meal on the deck of the Tuross Boatshed. After much munching and chatting Robert and Gerda took us out of Tuross Heads via the scenic route. The Tuross / Coila Lake area is well worth a visit.
