It was wet a few days before this run and cloudy as we drove to the Hall Lay-by. The weather didn’t look very good. Despite the weather, four cars with eight members departed for the drive to Boorowa. A bit of misty rain greeted us and we sought refuge at the Pantry on Pudman. After some very nice cakes and coffee we braved the elements for the drive to Young via Murringo. A very quick photo stop at the Memorial Hall in Murringo, the rain was enough to keep us on our toes.

It was a short drive to the Chinese Tribute Gardens in Young and, after a walk around the park, we decided it was a very pleasant spot for a picnic … in fine weather. As more rain sprinkled the road, we retreated to the Terracotta Café in Murrumburrah for lunch. After a satisfying lunch we noticed there was now a bit of sun and dry! Almost good enough to lower the roof, and then the drive to Galong for another photo stop and chat to the locals. The locals were friendly and moved a four wheel drive that was disrupting the background of a photo. Once a thriving town, there’s not much happening in Galong these days! We headed for Yass and our final stop at Roses Café. Yes, it was more coffee and cake.

Not all events will be in good weather and we made the best of the conditions for a drive in the countryside in good company. Thanks for joining us on this run.

We may organise a picnic at the Chinese Tribute Garden sometime in the future, during fine weather!
