Panton Hill Pub Run - Report 2.


It was a cold foggy morning on Saturday when we set off to meet everyone at Lillydale Lake at 10 o'clock. A hot cuppa went down well while we caught up with the other Humber members who had ventured out into the crisp winter air.
After a distribution of maps and route instructions and decisions of where to stop along the route we all set off. We had two hours at our disposal to wander through the Yarra Valley and Christmas Hills before we needed to arrive at our lunch destination - the Panton Hills Pub!
A good line-up at the start
Rather than visit the numerous wineries, antique shops and coffee shops that are scattered throughout the district John and I decided to stop at Sugarloaf Reservoir. A spot we had not been to for many, many years. It was delightful and as the sun was beginning to break through we spent a pleasant time taking in the views and generally checking out the area. We both thought that a club barbeque here perhaps could be something to keep in mind for the future.
We also stopped at Watson's Creek Antiques and had a look. Pity we have no room at home for the lovely pieces of furniture they had for sale. However, other Humber members lightened their purses and bought a variety of things from cheeses to collectables from the different places they visited along the way.
With everyone arriving at last at the historic picturesque pub we enjoyed a delicious lunch with good company. Lots of laughs and good cheer abounded as we tucked into the welcome feast. Eventually we made our farewells and trickled homewards in our faithful 1927 Humber that hadn't missed a beat all day and gave us welcome warmth through the firewall as we purred along - just perfect for a winter outing.
I'm only sorry that more members couldn't have joined us and had such a good day as we had just had.
John & Judy
