ALBANY VINTAGE &
CLASSIC MOTORCYCLE CLUB
Breakfast in Denmark
For once a real summer's day,
warm and not windy, which enticed over 20 bikes to ride
to Denmark for breakfast. The facilities at the rotunda,
next to the Denmark River, are excellent: two barbecues,
tables, seating etc The BBQ's were kept busy with cooked
breakfast being the popular choice.
We then headed off to Anvil Beach via
Eden Road, which skirts around the Denmark Estuary. The
road is very picturesque but the main attraction is the
many bends and not much traffic, although you have to
keep an eye out for the odd llama who could be seen
lazing around the unfenced paddocks as well as kangaroos
etc. The beach itself looked inviting but so was the
ice-cream at the Blueberry Farm so off we headed back
around those lovely bends again!
Chris rode our sidecar outfit with Mary
Sutcliffe as passenger. Now Chris has been known to take
a wrong turning or two and didn't let us down by taking
the wrong turning into the Blueberry Farm and to make
matters worse got bogged! ha ha. Galant John Bond came to
the rescue and helped the ladies out of their
predicament. Shame really as if I'd been a bit quicker I
could have taken their picture.
The owners of the Blueberry farm were
pleased to see us, guiding us to the best shady parking
spots. After ice-creams were devoured we took off to test
the newly bitumenised road to Muttonbird Island. The
council has done the right thing in keeping the bends
from the previous gravel road, although there was quite a
bit of loose stuff on some corners. We checked out the
new lookout at Muttonbird which has a great view of the
coastline, then time to head home.
We had covered 105 miles by my BSA Gold
Flash speedo - Great morning.
