The September Breakfast Run was moved forward a week as the last Sunday in September is the Bay to Birdwood. This year being the 40th Anniversary, we look forward to seeing a few of the Club there or waving from the roadside.
To everyone’s surprise, the day turned out to be far better than the weatherman had predicted, with the strong winds and rain not coming in until very late in the day. So the Normanville beach front was pretty busy and the café was doing a roaring trade.
John corralled all 10 starter cars at Veale Gardens, and not to be outdone he was brandishing his all-powerful Covid Marshal Badge, and so ensured everyone was doing the right thing!
The route was basically one following the coast from Brighton Road down, eventually joining up with South Road at Old Aldinga and then heading west across the Myponga Dam and through Carrickalinga to Normanville, so a fairly easy but picturesque route.
In total 14 MGs met at Normanville.
After we had got together, many went for drives around the Fleurieu or to visit local watering holes on their way home. Bill & Kath Colclasure had not visited that area of the peninsula before and so used the afternoon to explore the region. It’s always nice to find somewhere new, especially somewhere not too far from home.
As David McNabb was not on the run, the photographs were left to John and I to take, so are not up to the usual standard in having captions and the like.
