Red for Christmas in July

 What to wear for a car club run in the country and a Christmas in July lunch at a country pub . The obvious choice for me was red with leopard touches - always a favourite of mine.

 Christmas in July is a bit of a local tradition , no doubt started by homesick English folk that felt the cool weather in July is much more suitable for eating heavier Christmas fare . Maybe it just is an excuse to dress your pub in as much Christmas kitsch as is possible. Whatever the reason it was a great drive in the country and an enjoyable lunch with friends.
 After lunch we ventured further afield to a Forest Reserve that was completely new to me but a special spot for John and his family . Fortunately I had sneakers in the car, red suede and bush tracks don't mix. A relatively short walk through the bush to a forest lookout revealed quite a stunning sight  known as the Alumn Cliffs Gorge.
