Date: 17 Feb 2019
Location: Adelaide Beaches
The pressure was on, our first go at organising a cruise, a mystery cruise at that. We met at Keswick at a civil 10.00 o’clock on a perfect Sunday morning; everyone had a guess at our final destination based on clues on the flyer. We set off and cruised down Anzac Highway, Brighton road and Lonsdale Highway. All the while Trudy entertained with historical facts and property investment tips. After crossing the Onkaparinga we headed to the coast, and followed the Esplanade down to Port Willunga for a photo op. and wee stop. After the break we diverted from our planned route to see some of the local award winning housing, which really entertained some of the drivers. We headed inland to throw a bit of confusion into our final destination, returning to the coast and ending up at Maslins Beach (not the nudie bit). There we had a picnic lunch overlooking the sea.
Congrats to Tony & Lee for picking up on the “Bathers Optional” clue in the flyer. Thanks to Chris and Juanita for their excellent sweeping, and all those who attended. Paul & Trudy

Well the Mercury tipped at 39 degrees, but that didn’t deter a hardy group of 16 people from enthusiastically doing a modified Northern cruise, amended last minute from the planned Greenock Aviation museum cruise that will now be in a couple of months time when the weather supports the event!
We were pleased to welcome a new member – Michael, and Richard for his second cruise with son Zeke, along with lots of “oldies”, and our young Moseleys! The hills and paddocks through to Kapunda were so bare and dry, but we still saw ‘Map’ the Miner standing sentry at the entrance to the town, a reminder of SA’s early days. We had a snack at the bakery ready for our meandering drive through the back roads of the Barossa, to then come to the picturesque Tanunda, and visit the old fashioned milk bar “Sweet As”, that reminded us of Happy Days diner! Some great laughs as we sat round the booths and shared holiday stories, sampled ice-cream and milkshakes, before some photos of our beautiful cars as usual, and farewelling friends to make our way home. Thanks to all who braved the heat, and looking forward to the museum and BBQ another day!

Location: Clare, SA
10 cars met at The Angle Vale Shopping Centre for our Clare Bakery cruise. We headed out toward Tarlee to meet John and Robyn so 11 cars left Tarlee and headed to Clare, it was such a beautiful day for a cruise, not too hot and not a cloud in the sky. We arrived at lunch time at the Clare Rise Bakery, it was so relaxing and fun and the food was delicious, even the views from the Bakery were picturesque. While we were having lunch Helen suggested we go home via Tanunda where the annual Hot Rod show was on. The drive to Tanunda was amazing, we all drove on a roads we have never travelled previously. We had the best afternoon looking at the most beautiful Hot Rods in Tanunda, it was a great day with the Car Club family.

We had a nice group of 9 cars attend this cruise, meeting at the Tea Tree Gully Hotel. The weather was just about perfect as we set off through Chain of Ponds. After getting split up we regrouped at Lobethal and made our way through Woodside, Mt Barker then onto Strathalbyn. After negotiating a bit of traffic we reached Goolwa and made our way down the Main Street and down to the Warf where we parked and set up for our picnic lunch on the foreshore. We had a lovely backdrop of the water and Hindmarsh Island Bridge with a few boats cruising by as we enjoyed our lunch. The weather got a bit cooler at one point and we even had a few drops of rain which helped lock in the dust that we already had on the cars from the car park.
After lunch we chatted for a while then packed up ready for the trek home. After cruising through Pt Elliot and Middleton we got onto Victor Harbor Road and made our way back via a standard coffee stop, this time at Villis Mile End. It was a decent run for the cars to start off the New Year. Thanks to everyone that made the effort to come along.
