After all, it wouldn’t be an adventure without a bit of rain!
And it wasn’t too cold because we all had our thermals on. I had on my new ‘Rukka’ jacket and gloves! Fantastic! Latest riding gear from Europe.
Some decided to come in their cars and 6 of us were on our bikes, 5 from the Central Coast and Selena from Sydney.
We made it to Richmond in good time for coffee and morning tea and we were lucky with the rain. Now this trip I let Selena lead the ride! It’s a rare exception because she doesn’t always know where we’re going but I knew she did this time! As it was only an hour to My Victoria, it was an easy ride, except for Selena. She was out in front and did a few tank slaps but managed to stay in control, very well done! She just needed a few extra drinks that night to get over it!
It was hard to believe it was only 5 deg. when we arrived, didn’t feel that cold. Lucky when we went to the pub for lunch our gift for this Adventure was a lovely red beanie! That really went down well, the girls didn’t take them off all weekend, I think Sandra might have even slept in hers!
With the afternoon free we decided to car pool and go to Leura for a bit of shopping, there are lots of special little shops there and it was easy to pick out our group all thru the main street with their red beanies on.
We got back to the guesthouse at about 5pm, settled in front of the fire and had a show and tell with our purchases. Then the mulled wine and canapés arrived and the party started. Most enjoyable dinner in the heated dining room, along with Santa and an entertainer. It was a great evening. We’ll definitely put this on the calendar for next year.
Sunday morning we all had a huge cooked breaky and slowly decided to get our gear together and leave. Blackheath Art & Craft Markets sounded good, only 20 mins along the highway. The markets were in the Community Hall and were fabulous! So many handmade items. And they all wondered about the red beanies everywhere!
From there we rode to Springwood and had a nice leisurely lunch in the pub and eventually decided we should head home. Made it home about 4.30 to the coast, Selena about 3.30 back to Annandale and yes, it did rain a bit again!
But we were lucky, we didn’t have torrential rain like we seem to get in the summer, just a drizzle most of the time.
