After stuffing ourselves with all the delicacies, the next order of business was to check out the local pub, it was rather small and rustic not unlike a bar anywhere else in the world. My initial thought was to have a beer in a quiet corner and retire for the evening. Boy, I was mistaken, the place was packed, it seems as though everyone came for miles around. Not only were there Australians enjoying a drink, but Aborigines, and it seems people from the four corners of the globe.
Several Fosters later, it was time to mosey back to the camp ground, an open field behind the pub. It wasn’t hard to find my swag, (a canvas sleeping bag) and settle in for the night under the Southern Cross. Not a bad way to end my first day in the Land of Oz, a quick shower in the outdoor bath house and it would be off to the land of nod.
I was soon to discover there had to be a better time to shower, several people had beaten me to the showers and the water was ice cold. I will shower in the morning. Wrong again, another crowded shower and more cold water.
