Bay in a Day 2015 - Sunday 4th January
« on: November 17, 2014, 09:17:56 PM »
The first Moke trip for 2015 will be the annual Bay in a Day drive along the eastern edge of Port Phillip Bay and this year we are making for the very end of the peninsular at Fort Nepean, past Portsea. Meeting at 8:30am with near full fuel tanks on Sunday morning near Station Pier(where the Spirit of Tasmania berths),opposite the old Londdon Hotel, before leaving at 9am going express to Mount Martha for an early lunch or late morning tea. As there are no reasonable eateries in the Point Nepean National Park, either stock up at Mount Martha or get your Mum to pack an afternoon tea or snacks for you. People will have a few hours to look around the Fort, the Quarantine Station or go swimming and look for Harold before we will hopefully depart as a group and head back up the main roads towards home around 2 or 3pm.
I would like to get all the Mokes to stay together until we get to the Fort so we can have a nice photo shoot before people head off to explore on their own or as smaller groups.
If you plan to leave with us at 9am at Port Melbourne then let me know via email or SMS so I know you are coming otherwise if everyone is ready we may leave a little earlier than scheduled. If you would like to meet us along the way then just park yourself along the main route, The Esplanade, Beach Rd, Nepean Hwy(Mordi to Mornington) and the Esplanade to Mount Martha where we will be parking out the back of the shops while people grab a feed. We are not stopping at Mordialloc as we have in past years, but if you wish to join us, park just south of the bridge opposite the The Bridge Hotel and join in as we pass. I expect to be at Mounth Martha by 11am and leaving no later than Midday, earlier if possible to avoid the queues at Rye as we pass through.
The day is just about going a for a drive and being friendly so all you need is a Moke, a full tank of fuel and a bit of slip, slop and slapping if you can't afford a roof for your Moke. We tend to get around 12-15 Mokes most years, and I am not certain but I think this might be the 10th year it has been run so it would be great to see if we can break the elusive 25 Mokes for this event.
