Hunter Valley and Beyond 2009 - Day 13


Friday, 9 January 2009

We awoke to the same rain although the fog was much less than yesterday afternoon. Not good for being motorcycle tourists though so a bit of a wander was in order. Just like Wollombi, the attractions didn’t open until 11:00 or later and as we had to check out, there was no sense in hanging about in the rain so it was down the mountain for coffee at Bellingen then into Coffs Harbour to Bob and Fran’s motel.
Trevor elected to continue on to the Gold Coast and I borrowed some space in Bob’s store room so I could empty the trailer and take it to the manufacturer for some work on the suspension and the leaking lid seal. By the time this was done, Bear and Jayne had arrived after a wet ride from Yamba.
Once we were settled in, Therese headed off for some shopping and Meady arrived later in the afternoon after being held up by a serious truck accident to the south. Needless to say, Friday night was a fairly social one and late in the evening Bob produced a bottle of that 21 year old Draytons port I mentioned earlier. His bottle was even better than the sample. That may have had something to do with the fact that there was more of it and we didn’t have to ride afterward.
