Doug concocted a variation of the route
2006 trip to Tywyn which included going down the beautiful valley past
the Tal-y-Llyn lake. What with the forecast of rain, the Shrewsbury
vintage show and several cars or people being indisposed, it
pleasing that six cars, eleven people and one dog gathered at
Mile End. Russ, and Avril set off early in the Jago claiming to need a
head start, the rest all kept together to the coffee stop at Mallwyd.
It was later noted that Russ's dog moved on bends to help
the car like a sidecar rider - which could explain why the Jago corners
better that some might expect.
At the stop we unexpectedly met up with four se7ens and Graham Compton in his Gemini who were an impromptu gathering from the Westfield club. We all proceeded to Tywyn in typical ShACC ragged formation and got a fix of looking at the sea whilst having lunch on the prom. It was a free vote for the return route but the majority stopped off for Honey icecream before going their chosen way. We got back with the sun shining over Shropshire and there hadn't been one drop of rain - you should have faith.
|Ready for the off||Somewhat cramped parking at the coffee stop|
|Getting 13 out of 16 in the same place is not bad||Would you trust them to read a map?|
|Typical day trippers||Not quite a Le Mans start|
