Hi John, our arrival time for the ride tomorrow at Winchelsea is approximately 12:30. I intend to have a quick lunch at a small place called Cafe La Hoot, 1 Willis Street, just east of the Barwon River bridge on the north side of the highway. The cafe is opposite a riverside park and toilets. This time may be too early for lunch and some people may wish to reverse the order, i.e. one hour at the dressmaker exhibit first, the a later lunch in Winchelsea around 1:30pm. I have Tufan's number so will send any messages to him. Enjoy your mystery breakfast ride, David

Hi John and Bren. If there are any changes to the meeting time  tomorrow, could you please call or text me - I'll be off (internet) air from 4 pmish today. So won't be able to check any updates via this site, and don't want to miss the boat...literally!Unless I hear otherwise from you, see you at the 8 am ferry tomorrow (Saturday 28th Nov). Thanks kindly, Sheryl
