Keeping Your Morris On The Road

Consider Adelaide where in 2001, under the guise of fiscal responsibility but more likely political expediency, the government built the Southern Expressway, “a reversible one-way freeway”.

Fast forward to the 21st day of June 2014 and the duplication of the road to the usual two way expectation now requiring a grand opening event, a last hurrah to assuage any residual embarrassment, at which a promotion of the upcoming Fleurieu Folk Festival involves AMM’s attendance.

Someone built a new road ... hey let's dance on it!

Quite a camber on this section of the road ...

As a direct result of its origin and the metre-high concrete wall running through it, the event is a single winding procession of stands, tents and displays. There are good things to be said for this: most punters got a closer view than normal of at least one of our four foot-ups (involving some 20 dances) as they filed past, foot-ups could be located away from the inevitable doof-doof without sacrificing prominence and, probably, punters’ overall fitness was enhanced by the additional legwork required to cover the whole show.

The day started up with the usual patronage of the coffee van and, while the rain had the manners to hold off for the day, a diabolical wind made for much horizontal hanky dancing, an inconvenience more discouraging than it sounds. Despite this the day was enjoyable, not least because of the excellent dancing surface of newly leveled and laid bitumen.
