Weekend at Point Lonsdale

Originally it was to be a Saturday with my Aunt and then a concert at Geelong featuring some of the stars of the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s! Featured artists were The Black Sorrows, Richard Clapton, Daryl Braithwaite, and John Farnham. As the weekend got closer the weather was changing and by Sunday the wind blew up to the point of the show being cancelled due to the very high winds and safety concerns!

After a great night spent with Beth, Lorena and I actually managed to sleep in, to discover the show was cancelled. This left us with an afternoon of me showing Lorena Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale, I hadn’t been there for a few years but knew my way around there well!

While both Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale have change they have retained their character and charm, particularly Queenscliff which has so many historic buildings. The point Lonsdale lighthouse was a favourite as a kid and is still a great place to visit!

This was the first time Lorena had seen this area and she was very keen to revisit soon, I must admit I really enjoyed looking around here again and spending time with Aunt Beth Saturday and Sue and Roger Sunday! It was a very nice change to have consecutive weekends not working! I’m looking forward to having weekends away exploring different areas and camping when possible!

Philip Island Historic Races 2018

Well the 2018 Philip Island Historic race meeting has been and gone! The year of 2018 is marching on and has started running! PhotoGrid_1520992308310.jpg

This was as usual a fabulous weekend with great racing, amazing cars, and old friends!  This also marked the arrival of Lorena from Brazil and her first race meeting, she had attended, what a start to motorsport! The bug has really bitten her more than it already had now! This was also the first public appearance of the Spyder Automobiles polo shirts, which were well accepted!

The feature category was F5000 which was celebrating 50 years quite a feat for a class which has been almost unchanged in that time and has faced extinction many times during those years! It is such a great thing they have survived the test of time

These were just a couple of the significant cars racing, the Elfin James Hunt drove at the Rose City meeting at Winton and the Lotus F5000 one of only 8 built!

Lorena took most of these pics, she is so good at that! I must thank her for that! As usual it was a time of catching up with old friends they were many and varied but all as important in one way or another!
