Default 2 up 4 lunch...

A very rare event today. Wendy and I are able to go for a ride together. Weather was perfect. Sun blazing away through the near winter temps. So where should we go? South. Through the Royal National Park (RNP) and have lunch at the Scarborough Pub.

I have written about the RNP before so wont say too much besides the fact that I love this road. Again Wendy showed how great a pillion she is. Doesn’t matter what bike we have she just clicks with it. So I don’t even really notice her on the back. This run she had the camera out to take some ‘action’ photos.



Once we dropped down into the rainforest the road conditions went from patches of damp to full on moss. I mean bright green moss on the road. Thankful there is enough traffic to wear the moss away and it is mainly in the middle of the lane. I made sure I did not cross the line of moss once. Will not do to have wife go skidding down the road.

A quick stop at Stanwell Park to look at the bikes and the Parra gliders.













Your humble scribe.

My most wonderful pillion.


Wendy went off to find the ladies and on the way back knew exactly where I would be. Taking photos of the bikes. We watched the Para gliders as they gracefully floated by. Niether of us are game to have a go though. Soon it was time to move onto the pub for lunch. Wonderful meal was had by both of us. I had the beer battered fish and chips and Wendy had a huge bowl of soup.







For some reason I don’t do the RNP both ways. So it was up onto the freeway then onto Heathcote Rd and back to the dullness that is suburbia.

There are not enough days like today where Wendy and I got to escape for a few hours on our own. I can’t wait for the next one.

A perfect ride report, lots of bike photos and decent food photos to go with them and just enough words to string the whole thing together.

Felt funny taking a photo of the food. Hope people didn't think that we were from some posh food magazine doing a review.

Hi mate...
Jeez...another good one!!!
Good shots, too...it's nice having someone on the back taking pics while moving about, eh?
Enjoy the fang AND have the pics at the end of the day

PS:
Hope you don't mind that I quickly edited the post a little and put a line-separation between 2 of the pics (which appeared side-by-side, stretching the frame, scrolling needed to read the text)

Thanks for sharing!!!
