To Wollongong with Sirdan — more than the usual Sunday lunch

25 May


Sirdan’s new VW Golf Polo Match — generic pic above — is beautiful to ride in, and amazingly quiet too. Conscious this was a trip we had engaged in hypothetically with Lord Malcolm last year, and given today would have been his 51st birthday, we set out to explore at last the road bridge at Scarborough south of Sydney.


We went the long way to get there, through the Royal National Park, which Sirdan had never seen before. Dropped by my old house in Auburn Street Sutherland on the way too.


It proving impossible to park at the Scarborough Pub, and lunch being overdue, we went on to the Headland Hotel at Austinmer, which we shared with some fairly genteel bikies…


Another brief refreshment stop at the North Wollongong Hotel — we drank light and sparingly I hasten to add — and we had to go a very long way around the block as we missed the entrance to the North Gong. I did a Memory Lane as this was the nearest pub to my North Wollongong flat from 1978 to 1980.


Then a time at beautiful Wollongong Harbour, before heading home.
