Kicking off a year of Lotus adventures in style, the Newcastle LOST fraternity held their first run of 2015 this past weekend in the form of a cruise to Awaba House Restaurant. Read on for the tale of the day, thanks to Ashton Roskill.
We found them! The LOST fraternity that is… they live in and around Newcastle, and, contrary to popular belief, it’s not that hard to get there – in fact we had a blast doing so to meet them for breakfast on Sunday.
The Sydney group massed at the McDonalds in Thornleigh (along with some Mustangs heading for Cars and Coffee), and promptly at 7.30 headed for the Old Pac Highway north.
Apart from the inevitable push-bikes, it was a fun run, popping us out onto the freeway (that bit’s not so much fun in the Elan I must admit) before meeting the LOST (Lotus and Similar Thoroughbreds) contingent at the Morriset junction. We were led through the backroads to Awaba restaurant on the shores of Lake Macquarie, and enjoyed a very fine breakfast, good coffee and exceptional company.
Many thanks to James Chan and Jack McLaughlan for organising each end! And thank you to all who joined in. As you can see from the photos, we enjoyed a tremendous showing. Thanks too to Mark Alexander and Simon Kalis for the photos – of course I forgot my camera – again!
