Cruising on the Fleurieu Run - Wed 17 May 2017 - Webmaster MX5sa

Report on the Event

Despite cool and overcast conditions a lovely group of 27 vehicles and 52 people gathered at the Victoria Hotel at O’Halloran Hill for the run to Finniss. Unfortunately Dennis and Poppy Hawkins had some car problems with a red light showing on their dashboard and needed to seek help and were unable to take part in the run.

The run was designed for relaxed driving without too many twists and turns which gave everyone time to enjoy the scenery which included sea views, autumn leaves, ploughed paddocks, dairy cows, alpacas and other points of interest.

After a short pit stop at Mount Compass where some people said they have never stopped before, just flown by on the way to Victor Harbor and didn’t realise they actually had toilets, Cafes and two Bakeries. We turned the corner and headed down to Finniss via Currency Creek.

Apart from the never ending Road Works we made a fairly uneventful journey to Finniss with only one Car not following the instructions and missing a turn. The driver Hans blamed his navigator Debbie, but she didn’t agree – It was all HIS fault. Ever heard this before?

Regardless the Finniss General Store, provided a very good meal at a reasonable price in nice warm surrounding by the pot belly fire. Certainly a place on any nice fine day to go for a drive and a good lunch.

It has been a few weeks since our last run and it was great to catch up with old friends and to meet the newer members.

We hope you enjoyed your day “Cruising” which was the first run we had planned for the Club. Those of us who were amongst the last to leave Finniss probably had the added advantage of a free car wash on the way home. See you on the next run.

Margaret and David Hill
