This morning was nice and sunny so we figured we’d head down the coast in the EK for a nice drive. It was a great day out, and we saw a bunch of cool cars including a Dodge Daytona/Plymouth Superbird on the freeway. Pity she was going the other way, would have loved to get a pic.
We started by heading through the Royal National Park. If you’re not familiar with it, the Royal is a favourite among motorbike riders and sports car drivers – some awesome twisty fun to be had. The bad news is that it’s super popular with tourists, so on a nice sunny day you invariably end up stuck behind an L-plater or an old guy in a Camry.
This gorgeous Charger caught up to us when we were stuck behind a truck. Hard to get a decent pic in dappled light while on the move with an iphone, but trust me it was very nice.
I always love when you reach the end of the Royal, and the road spits you out into the open with this expansive view over the ocean. Great photo op too.
The Sea Cliff Bridge is one those places that seems to pop up in every second car advertisement. With it stretching and twisting right out over the crashing waves, the view is pretty awesome and the bridge has become a tourist attraction in itself. I just happened to be getting some pics when we passed a GT heading north.
Lunch was at Austinmere Beach. Austi is a fave place of ours, the beach is usually patrolled, there’s usually parking, the fish and shop is pretty reasonable and the small park give you a place to hang out in the shade.
After the steep climb out of Bulli Pass, we took the scenic route home via Camden and Picton, so we could enjoy some of the quiet country roads.
As we got to Camden the clouds were starting to roll in. Sure makes for cool photos though.
And as we were driving home we drove right into those dark clouds! In the end the rain got pretty heavy, and it was good to back her into the garage when we finally got home.
