Good Friday Picnic in the Park!
Each Easter Cootamundra Antique Motor Club has a “Hot Cross Bun” drive out to some local park. This year I have documented a drive out and “Hot Cross Bun” on the grass in the sun.
Preparation started just after 10:00 am. My wife heated up the Hot Cross Buns in the Microwave while I got the car out.
The following is a pictorial account of our adventure.
