        AUTUMN RUN 2012   REPORT BY KEN IRWIN

 

 

13 cars started this run from  Sprucefield on a dry grey morning.  We travelled just a few miles to Spruce Meadows, an outdoor adventure farm run by Gary and Ann Kerr where we enjoyed tea/coffee and scones.

After leaving Spruce Meadows we made our way via an indirect route to Dobbies Garden centre where many purchases were made, mainly by the ladies.

After an hour on the loose we managed to round up everyone before departing via the motorway and byways to the Ballance House on the Glenavy Road, home of Sir John Ballance who held the office of Prime Minister of New Zealand from 1891-1893.

Yet again we were entertained to tea coffee and scones before being split up into two groups for an educational tour of the Ballance House.

No more scones I hear !!!!!

We then proceeded along some scenic roads where normally you can enjoy views of the Sperrin Mountains, Lough Neagh and the Mourne Range. Unfortunately these views were partly obscured by mist.

Eventually we arrived at the Tannery Restaurant in Moira for an enjoyable evening meal before departing on our separate ways.

I trust you all enjoyed this adventure.
