Some places we've been and some places we're going.

It was a day for doing laundry but there are only two machines in the Caravan Park and no Laundrette in Yack so we decided to go to Beechworth and check out things there. Apart from the Laundrette we saw:

Beechworth Jail

Beechworth Council Chambers

Billson’s Brewery

The Carriage Museum

The town is a collection of lovely old buildings from the school at one end to the Jail at the other and I’m sure they extend way back beyond the main street.

At night we went back to the Star Hotel hoping that a Jam Session would eventuate and we were lucky. It was fantastic seeing people wandering in with their instruments, there was a double bass, sax, guitars, banjo, tambourine, Irish tin whistle, bongos and another drum and a couple of fiddles as well as the pub’s piano. One young guy went from guitar to banjo to piano, equally adept on each of them. I counted eleven different musicians. I only saw one person with a folder of music or songs but one person would start to play something and then others would simply join in. It was a great night out.

  1. Love jam sessions like that. What a great evening. 😍

    • We’re going up again tonight supposedly it’s more of a Jazz and Blues night but I guess it depends what musicians turn up, hopefully some.

  2. Thanks so much for sharing Sue greaf pics & comments! That jam session sounds terrific
