Capricorn Dancers, Day 6 – Learning more about Tocumwal

Day 6 Tuesday 1/6/21 Tocumwal, cloudy cold

A cold day sees the quarantining camp very quiet. As Woody says ‘it’s not as though we can go to the movies’ (Tocumwal is far too small for that). Though VeeWee is glued to Netflix. As the day improves we get out for walks around town and find a plaque in honour of a young Tocumwal boy who was killed in Gallipoli in World War One. It’s amazing what you find when you have the time to look around.

There is much debate as to whether the Melbourne lockdown will be extended.

We had intended having dinner at the Terminus Hotel but they’re having electrical problems so, on local advice we choose the Golf Club which is now happily welcoming Victorians. This club is well known for the kangaroos that frequent the golf course.

The Club staff are welcoming and friendly, the meal is excellent and I’d love their recipe for the gnocchi. There’s a TV screen broadcasting the News above the bar and the on-screen weatherman is having difficulty describing where rain will fall tomorrow “That’s harder to pick than a broken nose” he declares. You’ve got to give him credit for honesty.
