Sunday before Mother’s Day 2018

6 May

We left at 10,30 for a 50 km drive to Berry. On the way we had to drive through Albion Park Rail. This delayed us somewhat for there was an airshow on at the Illawarra Regional Airport. Lots of people had already parked all over the area, and quite a few people were still arriving looking for more parking spots quite some distance away and then walking to where the action was. We saw heaps and heaps of cars and hundreds and hundreds of walkers!

“Illawarra Regional Airport is located adjacent to the Princes Highway at Albion Park Rail in NSW, approximately 20kms south of Wollongong City Centre and 100kms south of Sydney City Centre.”

Once we made it through Albion Park Rail on the Princes Highway, we had a good run further south to Berry.

We had no idea that in Berry was a show on too. I looked it up now, it was the

NATIONAL MOTORING HERITAGE DAY AT BERRY SHOWGROUND

I have never seen as many people and cars in the vicinity of Berry. But we were lucky. Peter found a very convenient parking spot near here:

We had some lovely ice-cream and were sitting outside with it. We only had to walk a little bit further to find a beautiful outside cafe and there was no problem at all to get a table. The coffee we ordered was very good. The weather was just perfect:ย  Sunshine the whole time and no wind whatsoever.

Atย  the French Bakery across the road Peter bought a cinnamon scroll and a baguette. Then we drove back home, where we warmed the cinnamon scroll up in the oven and then had it at a table in our backyard with a cup of tea.

The whole outing took us only 2ย  and a half hours.

      Thanks, Carolyn, thank you very much! I am looking forward to Mother’s Day since on a day like this family visits are going to happen! ๐Ÿ™‚
      When we went down south yesterday it was on very good roads. There was a little bit of extra traffic because of these special events, still it was worth it going out for a drive just for our enjoyment. And we always love Berry as a destination.
      “Berry is a delightful village in the Shoalhaven region and a perfect destination to unwind and relax”, this is what it says here:

      I do agree agree with this wholeheartedly! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Berry! That looks like such a quaint, beautiful, enjoyable place! I’m so glad you got to go there!
        I’m glad you will be getting some visits for Mother’s Day! ๐Ÿ™‚
        None of my adult kids can come home this weekend (they live too far away), but they will be here at the end of the month for a family reunion. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am excited about that! ๐Ÿ™‚
        HUGS!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Our son and his family live too far away, but our daughters with their partners and hopefully some grandchildren and great- grandchildren are going to come, as well as son-in-law’s mother. ๐Ÿ™‚
        A family reunion at the end of the month? This sounds exciting indeed. ๐Ÿ™‚
        HUGS from Uta ๐Ÿ™‚

    Looks like you chose a busy day for an outing Uta, two shows in one day sounds quite an undertaking, I have lost count of how many Air shows I have seen over my twenty years in the Army, some I took part in.
    Best regards to you both.
    Cheers.

      Sorry, Ian, but we did not go to any of the shows, It’s just that because of the shows there were a few traffic delays. Still, we were lucky, the traffic delays weren’t too bad.
      Regards to you and Ann.
      Cheers, Uta and Peter ๐Ÿ™‚
