Tilba for Lunch
Thursday presented clear skies for our run to Ellen’s Pantry at Tilba for lunch.
9:30 am saw four Mx5’s meet up at Milton’s Heritage Bakery for coffee and a chat before setting of at 10:00 am for the run south. With Brian and Anda in the lead we navigated what seemed like continual roadworks before we arrived at MacDonald’s in Batemans Bay where we were joined by James and Giulia.
It was slow going for much of the trip due to the continual roadworks and one pesky vintage motor bike travelling at 60km/h on the highway but the weather was good, the scenery was great and we all arrived in Tilba safely for lunch.
Ellen’s Pantry was well worth the journey. We enjoyed great food and excellent company despite being spread out to comply with Covid-19 distancing rules. Graeme was so impressed with his meal he proclaimed that his sausage roll was the best he had ever tasted while my Beef and Shiraz pie wasn’t far behind.
We followed lunch with a relaxed walk and some random shopping in the historic Tilba township where we investigated everything from jewellery and woodcraft products to cheese and soap.
After a final meet up and chat we made our way home and fortunately by this time most of the roadworks had ceased for the day so we had a clearer run home.
