Day 6 Tuesday 15th January 2013 Clunes
Our friends R & T and their two little dogs Gemma and Holly arrive around 11:00 am and set up beside us. Woody makes up a ham and pasta salad (he’s a dab hand in the kitchen) and being ‘awningless’ we sit in the shade of their awning. We stroll around town and generally have a lazy day. I find a nice spot by the creek to practice my ukulele and have an audience of one curious ginger cat (I’m not sure if this is an improvement on my last audience of dementia patients at my aunt’s nursing home). After sunset we have a BBQ, giving R’s Baby Weber a workout.
2022 Note: Originally settled as a sheep station, Victoria’s first reported gold strike was in Clunes in 1851. Clunes at the 2016 census had a population of 1728. Today Clunes is known for its annual Booktown Festival. Popular too, is the little changed Fraser Street which has become well known as a location for movie makers.
