Hmmm....I would guess a 24hr petrol station, or perhaps the trusty thermos flask scratchchin

No worries, PuffsBack.
Sorry to miss this time, but hopefully see you again soon. Thank you for letting me know. I hope the shed is an easy fix!

My snaps and thoughts

What sort of time is this on a Sunday?



But I wasn’t the only loon biggrin





Car park for Breakfast after (I had to have a pre breakfast breakfast at the Esso garage)



The irony of Darren saying I’ve checked the route for road closures and ending up in a closed road less than a mile from start point

Chuckling at a lass in a Corsa who waited be hind me while a bunch of cars in front all did a 3 point turn

Wishing I was in a MGB with small wheels and balloon tyres for the majority of the run (I thought it kept up very well with just 96 bhp)

Trying to work out which car sounded angriest - V8 M3 coupe

2nd proper drive in the new daily 125i coupe

Run Flats are horrid things

I need more power (don’t we all)

I need a noisy exhaust (or less sound proofing)

1 series cup holders are stupid - serious what interior designer thought it was a good idea to put a cup holder under an arm rest and the make it for an expresso cup or you can’t have the arm rest down

Don’t buy a medium coffee and a pan du chocolate just before we start up again if you haven’t worked out that the cup holder is a bit compromised

Thanks to Daz for organizing and big thanks to the Angel for yet another scrummy breakfast.

Best thing about the breakfast run is lack of traffic.

Good to see our old favourite PHers and meet new faces.

Worth the 0315hrs wake up call !!!

Thank you to everyone who made it along to another excellent Breakfast Run, and our first dry one in 3 years!

A ruddy turn out of regulars and new faces in the usual PH variety came along to enjoy some early morning roads.
While there were countless birds and plenty of other wildlife to avoid, the pace was still to an enjoyable level and little else in the way to spoil the fun, save for that unexpected closed road paperbag

A tasty breakfast greeted us at the end of the route and that was the end of a great morning with you all thumbup

I have had a couple of suggestions already to try improve things for next time, so if you have any feedback please don't hesitate to let me know.

Thank you for sharing some photos here. I'll add a link to my effort soon smile

Next up is another PHEA & Norfolk Cars & Coffee on Sunday 25th August.

Hopefully see you all again soon.

Darren
