Milang, SA


Considering it was the June long weekend we had a great turnout of 10 cars for cruise to Milang, and of course being my first cruise it’s just nice someone turned up at all - ha ha! After a 10.30 departure from the Mie End Homemaker Centre we made our way up to the freeway through the tunnels love the sound of a V8 through the tunnels with the windows down, even if the weather was a bit cool. After turning off at the Hahndorf exit we cruised down to Meadows. Being a market day at Meadows our usual stop of f spot was full of market stalls, so we decided not to have a break there, and headed straight through to Clayton Bay via Ashbourne and Finniss. It s one of my favourite roads with some nice high - speed bends and luckily the traffic was quite light so we all had a pretty clean run. After a scenic detour through Clayton Bay (yes it was deliberate) we followed the shores of Lake Alexandrina to Milang.

Because I can’t count, and we also had a couple of extra’s coming along the Milang Pier Hotel frantically put some extra tables together to cater for 19 of us for lunch. After our nice hot lunch by the nice hot fire we were asked by the lovely staff at the Pier Hotel to pose for some photos and video with the band they had playing for the long weekend crowds. We almost felt like the stars of the pub for the afternoon. Either that or slightly awkward!

After the weather holding off for most of the day the heavens finally opened up on the way back home via Strathalbyn. After a few of us stopped off at the bakery (we had to stop at one bakery least) for a bit of dessert, we headed our own way home. Hopefully a great time was had by all - and thanks again for turning up!
