Our 21st of July club run was a visit to the Point Cook Air Museum at the RAAF base, which worked out well for us in the EV as it was within range of Williamstown without recharging. Attendees in 8 cars total included me and Wayne, Len Ward, Mark Hoffmann, Walter, Gerard and Sandra Gowans, the Iceton family, Peter Digby, Doug Miller and Allan & Meredith Abbott. It was a bit of a blustery day, but the sun was out making it feel a bit warmer. We enjoyed exploring the great exhibits in the main museum building. The displays are eerily life-like! In addition to the main museum, there are three other hangars of stored airplanes and workshops. Highly recommended and only a gold coin donation – and close to the city. Fellow member John Elliott was also working as a volunteer at the museum front desk on the day.
After the museum, the majority of us went for lunch at the Point Cook Homestead cafe. It was nice and cosy inside and good to get out of the wind. We also explored the Homestead grounds and old homestead, which is in a state of disrepair. The views back to the city from the beachfront near the homestead were amazing. Imagine living there!
Thank you to everyone who braved the cool conditions and we look forward to our next drive day.
