Patron’s Run 21/9/2022

We left the Club Rooms at 9:45 a.m., 12 cars and 21 people. The weather looked a bit threatening, but it didn’t rain. The countryside was a picture with the canola crops out in a yellow bloom and fence high and above. So, the farmers in this area will be smiling this harvest time. We arrived a Ben’s at about 10:30 a.m. to a deserted car yard. I thought perhaps he heard we were coming, and he’s done a runner, but no, shortly after he arrived with biscuits and milk for morning tea. I had ordered sponge cake, perhaps next time. He had a good selection of collector’s cars there plus about 20 motorbikes. He tells me he turns over about 40 vehicles a year. We then proceeded to the Commercial Hotel for a very good lunch reasonably priced I thought, and after having a look in the new car and bike museum, we made our way home to Murray Bridge.
