After the big day yesterday, we had a sleep in and not much planned for the day.
We headed off to Dalgety after attempting to book in for lunch at the winery. We couldn’t get through so left anyway.
Dalgety is an historic little village which was once almost made the Australian capital. It’s also the only town left on the Snowy River.
We did the river walk and wandered around town for a little bit – not recovered enough yet for anything strenuous!
The river looks more like a little creek these days.
We tried to book in to the winery again but there was no mobile signal in town! We had to drive to Berridale to get a signal and when we finally got through we were told they wouldn’t be doing lunches till Saturday and Sunday. I’d rung on Wednesday and was told they would be doing lunches Thursday and Friday as well – they just didn’t have anyone on hand that particular day… Might give it up as a bad joke.
We stopped for lunch back in Jindabyne – I had a very nice lamb burger with chips – cheaper than at home, even!
We had a bit of a rest for a few hours and then went yabbying down at the lake. Unfortunately, after three hours we’d caught nothing! We went to the shops and bought some different meat for bait, had a coffee, and went back for more. This time we had some success, though we were cold and mossie bitten getting there!
We got home around 10 and Donald cooked it up for us – enough for my first taste, anyway!
