Mandy, centre, was surprised as people gradually arrived at,
what she thought was, a quiet family lunch
Mandy's mother, sisters and brother-in-law
People gathered on the back terrace of the Victoria Hotel
Guests entering into the festive spirit
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed catching up with old friends.
I love the old-world feel of the pub
It definitely has that country feel!
Fortunately, since our visit, the rains have arrived and the pastures are becoming green again. Maybe, when the land fully recovers, the farmers will be able to survive the dreadful effects of the drought, and recover their livelihoods.
