Clarence Town mystery Run

Sunday 14th January 2018, what a day. We woke up with up to 60km wind gusts outside and thought, Hello,  that will drop the numbers for the run. WRONG, when we got to BP at Beresfield there were 15 cars waiting for us. We weren’t late but everybody was keen for the run.

We decided to head off to Clarencetown via Nelsons Plains and Seaham and what a great drive.  Not much traffic and a pleasant drive indeed.

We arrived at Geoff and Patricia’s excellent hideaway shed, ( The Hen House and The Lair) and we were all gobsmacked. What a great collection of memorabilia and cars he has. Singers, Chevs and Holdens abound and with all the signs covering the walls it was a lot to take in. Not to be outdone, Trish has her collection of things as well. I counted at least 25 electric jugs as well as different toasters, one of which I am sure was my mums when I was a kid growing up. At least it looked like it?

After a couple of hours inspection it was up and away, off to the Erringhi Hotel in town where they had allocated 4 large tables for us to partake of some lunch. Ever heard of the country pub lunch, you nearly can’t jump over it, well this was it. It nearly stopped me, but I persevered.

After that and lots of talking we eventually headed off for home and I was buoyed by the thought that all was well with the world, at least that is, where we were today.
