Rod Run on Australia Day

Yesterday we headed out to Laidley for an Australia Day Rod Run with The Rod Squad group. We were a bit unsure as to whether we would go or not as the previous two days it had been raining non stop. Our hot rod is a roadster so is not the best in the wet weather but the morning brought an overcast sky with no rain so we decided to head off and risk it. It turned out to be a great day  with our first stop being for lunch at this sixties style cafe.  Elvis was keeping guard outside.  They had burgers called James Dean, J O'K, Elvis Presley to name a few and my choice was Marilyn Munroe which contained breast chicken, salad and beetroot which is a must with our Aussie burgers. Of course forgot to take a photo but it was as delicious as  the French Vanilla Slice I had for dessert at the last stop on our run, Fernvale.

It has been a while since Chris and I have spent time together in the hot rod so we thoroughly enjoyed our outing.  We were also able to catch up with friends and talk about all things hot rod.
 Hope everyone had a       'HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY' .  We are so lucky to live in this wonderful country.
Bye for now.
